Try these burgers, they are delicious with a different taste that's a nice change from the ordinary. Watching our carbs, we served them on skinny sandwich rolls, and made a dressing from chili sauce and sour cream that suited them perfectly. I'm popping this right into my Best of 2013 Cookbook and will definitely have them again!!
