“I had this lovely sandwich at a local cafe and added my own twist to spruce it up,” says Dolores Brigham of Inglewood, California. “Sometimes I use mini croissants for pretty, smaller-sized servings.”
I was delighted to find this recipe, a healthy version of burgers with little fat, but flavorful ingredients, including carrot, onion and apple. I make these burgers with either ground turkey or chicken.
