1.5 T fresh rosemary, minced
0.5 t kosher or sea salt
1.25 t black pepper
2.5 T Sour cream[p]Mix all of the ingredients gently, and form into patties. Grill or pan fry to your likeness.[p]Adjust seasonings accordingly for dry herbs and to your personal tastes. Enjoy! they are gooooooooood![p]phillip


  • bbqwizard,
    I see you are awake at 3:00 AM too. I can't sleep and naturally I had to check the Forum. I like your recipe and will keep it handy. When on a diet one must make adjustments wherever possible. We eat turkey bacon instead of Canadian bacon, and frequently make bunless burgers using ground chicken or turkey. Very tasty.[p]Anyway, thanks for the recipe. I'm headed back to bed.[p]Spring "Early Bird" Chicken

  • Spring Chicken,[p]When you make your bunless burger try substituting a large leaf of iceburg lettuce. Place the cooked burger in the middle of the leaf, top with your fixings and wrak it up like a present. I have found that I like burgers better that way that with a bun, whether dieting or not![p]
  • Eggecutioner,
    The South Beach Diet has something similar on the menu during the first two weeks. It is usually a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. It calls for a spoon of homemade celantro mayonnaise spread on a Romaine lettuce leaf and topped with a slice of turkey meat, rolled and enjoyed to the fullest. Beats nothing.[p]Spring "Down Another 24 Ounces" Chicken

    grill to my likeness?
    does that mean to shape it into the form of my hideous visage? ...or should my grill marks burn my portrait into the patty?[p]either way, disturbing.[p]har har
    i so funny

  • bbqwizard,[p]Your Welcome... However, I can not take the credit. All credit goes to Suzanne Sommers. I saw her on some show years ago, and thats what she suggested. I tried it and liked it. Really liked it.[p]Joe
