Not So Classic Burger

Patrick Johnson


I don't recall where I first saw this recipe. Loving each ingredient, I gave it a go. In the spirit of the fusion trend, I give you the southern, mexican, Italian, (and like many of us in the States) mut burger.

Note: Clearly you can take liberties with the spicy ingredients if you have do not enjoy the heat.
