The last time I made these was a few months ago, but whenever warmer weather starts to hit, I am always in the mood for a good burger, so out they came again! This recipe doesn’t disappoint! They are perfect with or without a bun (BTW, if you’re looking for a good hamburger bun recipe, check out my gluten free hamburger buns here). Furthermore, the veggies that are added in provide a whole bunch of extra nutrients – score!
Here is the recipe for these delectable burgers!
