Yes. That’s a mouthful of a title for a recipe… but I seriously considered adding additional descriptions.
When you taste something like this… you just want to talk about it. You want to describe it well. You want to make sure everyone else can taste it through your words.
Seriously, with this burger, there are almost no words.
Flavorful. Mediterranean. Italian. Tomatoey. Charred. Melty. Gooey. Satisfying. Sweet. Savory. Amazing. Fresh. Summery.
Those are just a few of the words I came up with for this recipe from Iowa Girl Eats. As always, I made a few modifications to make it work with what I had in the refrigerator… but this burger is my new go-to. I only made one, but I’ll tell you… I can’t wait to make my next one.
Oh, and where’s the bun? Don’t care. Didn’t need one. (Yes, it’s still me talking…) While I love my bread, this burger stands alone in the most delicious way. TRY IT and then give me some words for how it tastes. I know I missed a few….
