This is the basic recipe…use your imagination to make any ‘burger’ you like. I topped mine with spicy ketchup and dill chips.
How about a Cowboy Burger – pinto beans mixed into the meat part…BBQ sauce slathered under the cheese topping.
Or some blue cheese crumbled in and roasted garlic. Or feta cheese and Greek olives? WOW!
Serve this with a fresh and crispy green salad and the family won’t miss the BUNS!
