What can you say about burgers, that hasn't already been said.....after all, they are one of the world's favorite foods. They are one of my favorite foods...along with pizza. I do think that the burger flavor is worth presenting more as an entree,...and that is what this recipe is all about....."DITCH THE BUN", and you have all the appeal of a "Gourmet Burger"....worthy of being plated up at the finest of occasions. I will serve this proudly for my meat loving dinner guests.
