Slather 'em.

Flip the BUBBA burgers and pour in the sauce. Swirl the pan around so the sauce is touching all the burgers. After about 2 minutes, turn heat to low and use a flat wooden or rubber spatula to cut the burgers into 4 equal pieces right in the pan. Stir so all the burger pieces are coated and continue to simmer for 5 minutes until the sauce is sticky and the burgers are cooked through.
