Less is sometimes more with burgers and to keep it simple this burger is topped with delicious toppings like mozzarella, tomatoes, and lettuce. The basil oil adds great flavor as well. A great tip we learned with my husband for burgers is if you make a small indentation in the middle of each burger patty. the patties won’t shrink while cooking.
Nothing says summer like a juicy burger hot off the grill!
