I love a good burger but sometimes I want to switch things up a bit. Lately I have been experimenting with takes on an Italian burger and have been pretty impressed with this Italian Beef Burger. With the addition of tomato sauce, garlic (of course!), Italian spices, and fresh basil you get a moist and delicious burger. Want to make it really special? Add some melted fresh mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers, and pesto!
