This was a delicious recipe and super-easy to make. It's a great change from a regular burger.
Very hearty. The family loved it.
This is the perfect burger for me!
Making this for a second time tonight. Great flavor and healthier than many other burger recipes. I use baby spinach to top my burger, instead of additional basil leaves.
Very good....ESPECIALLY the dressing!!
