Killer Provolone-Stuffed Pesto Burgers

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Wildflour

I've started experimenting with dry mixes adding them to hamburger to "perk up" the flavor, this is the latest! We felt like we were eating at a very upscale bistro cafe! Hope you try them before the summer is over, they are to die for! Enjoy!

This truly is a gourmet burger! I just put a single patty and the cheese on a bun. The pesto mayo really makes it too. Thanks, Wildflour - you have a great recipe here.
