Basil, tomato and garlic are one of my favorite flavor combos. These 3 ingredients are used in alot of the recipes I cook, so I knew they would be fantastic added into a burger!
I prefer using ground turkey for burgers, over ground beef. The addition of the basil, diced tomatoes and garlic was phenomenal. It was one of the MOST flavorful burgers I've ever eaten and I will most definitely prepare them again. They were juicy and all I topped it with was a light smear of mayo. Delish!
This recipe was created using ingredients from Del Monte!
