We really liked these burgers, especially me! They were a little too healthy for my one son though. ;) I used spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce and chose fresh basil. I had mine on a multigrain skinny bun and used the dijon, tomato and some lettuce. Made for Went to the Market tag game. Thanks Annacia! :)
