I make these as regular-sized burgers, but the sliders are fun, too. They're healthier than beef burgers, and the fresh rosemary adds such a nice flavor to them!

If you don't have "Savory Finishing Sauce" (Wegman's sells it), this is what's in it ... you can concoct a sauce on your own:
Unsalted Butter, Balsamic Vinegar, Soy Sauce, Tomato Paste, Water, Sugar, Ginger, Salt, Dried Onion.
You could probably use a Hoisin Sauce, or something similar.
