Reviews for Basil Burger Patties
"These were really good and a nice change of pace. I will definitely make again."
"I made these slider size and added a fresh picked tomato to the toppings. Used chopped fresh basil instead of minced. Was skeptical of the cream cheese, but yum! Delicious!"
"I'm not normally the biggest fan when it comes to homemade burgers, but now I am. This burger was AMAZING! Simple and easy to make, and the flavors were all great together. Make these burgers, you won't be disappointed."
"I tried your recipe. Based on the high starts status, i expected much. Could not have been more dissapointed. Sorry, but this sucks and is a detriment to the true burger."
"Was simply delicious!!! My husband LOVED them and doesn't normally like burgers. All the different flavors melded nicely together! Can't wait to make these for guests!!!"
