I love these. They serve something like this at a wings bar I like to go to. While theirs are really tasty, home cooked food is always best!

The spices and toppings make these burgers tasty. Next time I might add some tomato juice or something to make the burgers a little more juicy. I might try making them bigger than 4 oz. as well.

For toppings, I used blue cheese, pesto, roasted red peppers and tomatoes.

I thought this recipe was yummy. The nice hunk of blue cheese made an already awesome burger recipe better.

Tasty recipe, though I was only on the consumer, not creator, end of things. I really enjoyed the blue cheese and pesto topping. Bigger patties would be great only because then I'd get MORE.
