Burgers or some type of sandwich usually make an appearance on my weekly menu. Since this is a weekly staple, I am always on the lookout for ways to take a simple burger recipe to the next level. Recently I have been loving taking an Italian twist on a simple beef or turkey burger and adding garlic, red pepper flakes, fresh basil, and tomato paste. Some mozzarella cheese would also be delicious right in the burger mix or melted on top for serving. My favorite way to serve these burgers is on a roasted portabella mushroom topped with roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella, and some extra basil. Yum.
