These burgers were excellent. I was initially skeptical, since I'm no friend of the cranberry, but I was pleasantly surprised by the richness of the sauce. There was a wonderful blend of different flavours and textures. We served the patties on toasted Focaccia loaves which worked extremely well. The only change I made to the recipe was a substitution of romain for bibb lettuce. This will definitely become part of our regular roatation for spring and summer. Made for PAC Spring '08
This was my second selection for PAC2006. It was one of those dishes where my first reaction was "huh," then decided to try it. Boy am I glad I did. The burger was terrific very moist and flavorful with a wonderful mix of spice and savory flavors. Just make sure to chop all the aromatics finely and you are certain to enjoy these generously sized burgers. Loved the cranberry-yogurt topping as well. My only changes were using romaine instead of bibb lettuce and to add a little extra sage -- just 'cause I love the flavor. Though I didn't make them toight these would be perfect with baked sweet potato fries or an orange salad. Will certainly have this again as it was the perfect use of my cranberries frozen from the fall. Thanks Baby londongavchick!
