Saturday has become burger night here trying those of all types some with beef, others with chicken, turkey, soy or beans. This was tonight's special and a wonderful treat. My bread was a little narrow so I sliced it on the diagonal and had two brushetta shaped burgers per serving. I made the burger mix as directed adding a small pinch of pepper flakes for a little zip and the result was a lean burger long on flavor.
