It's a salty meets sweet burger...

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These are extremely flavorful burgers. The spices added to the patties enhances the flavors. Starting them on the stovetop and finishing in the oven creates a juicy burger with a crisp outer crust. With a garlic basil flavor, the mayo blend is fantastic. It would be great on other sandwiches too. The balsamic glaze is sweet, tart and give a great flavor balance to the burger. Crisp and melted mozzarella is the real star of the dish - it oozes in every bite. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
