It's getting to be that time of year when most of my cooking is done outside. The guys can get sick of the same old burgers and hot dogs pretty quickly, so I'm always looking for new ways to dress them up. I pinned these Caesar Burgers while back, and waited patiently for the rain to stop so I could make them.
Didn't change a single thing for this one except the roll- I went with the classic sesame seed. I loved the texture of the burger, the egg and crumb almost makes them "meatloaf-y", plus the cool crunch of the romaine and the creamy dressing. These definitely will be a part of my regular burger rotation.
Lots of great recipes being shared this week from my fellow Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editors! I think I'll have one of everything :) Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the post! Want to be a Taste of Home Volunteer Editor? Check out the requirements and apply here!
