Bulgur Burgers

Russ Myers


*Bulgur is a quick-cooking form of whole wheat that has been cleaned, parboiled, dried, ground into particles and sifted into distinct sizes. Bulgur is a nutritious, versatile wheat product with a pleasant, nut-like flavor and an extended shelf-life that allows it to be stored for long periods.
Although it might sound strange at first, adding bulgur to your hamburgers guarantees a unique texture and taste.
