Burger Week

Grilled Eggplant and Pesto BurgerWe are holding a mini burger-themed week here at JohnnyPrep.com, since it is high grilling season. First up is this recipe for Grilled Eggplant and Pesto Burger, a.k.a. the California Burger, which also features ground beef, mushrooms, Gouda cheese, and red pepper mayonnaise! It’s a nice break from the standard cheeseburger, and layers in some fresh summer vegetables.

Both of these deliciously juicy burgers would go extremely well with my recipe for Italian Sausage and Cheese Roasted Tomatoes, and for dessert, a plate of rich-tasting Chocolate Peanut Fudge Brownies with Crème Anglaise.
