    Great burger. Made half but didn't have pine nuts. Very good with Recipe #133358.

    Made 1/2 recipe (2 burgers) last night, popped 1 in the freezer and 1 in my GF Grill. Too cold for outdoor grilling but that spare in the freezer is destined for the outdoors! I used chopped Vidalia onion and Parm cheese, and topped the pattie with mozzarella as you did, and found it incredible! Thanks for sharing Twissis. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

    Another keeper from twissis! I made this using toasted, and chopped, pine nuts. Very tasty ~ loved all the different flavors blending together. Served with provolone cheese on top, and all the fixings. Thanks twissis, made for Football Pool 2008, your Week #17 win.

    We tried this recipe for the first time this weekend, needless to say I won't be buying store bought anytime soon. This is a tasty delight, and it even calls to you from the refrigerator Murray Fletcher Waterloo, Ontario, Canada


I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
