    Being the minimalist that I am..........I usually hook it up with either ground chicken or ground beef, lots and lots of freshly minced garlic, worcestershire, salt, pepper, egg, breadcrumbs (fresh parsley or cilantro--if you like).....pound them out to about 2 oz. patties.....then brown them up in the saute pan........finish them in the oven......and usually only garnish them with thinly sliced deli pickle, ketchup and diced sauteed onions! (cheese being optional)
    They're bangin' and 'tis the season!!

      Thats not minimalist, nor is it a burger, thats a skinny meatloaf or meatball.

      A burger is ONLY meat, with maybe some pepper, then you put the toppings on.

          A burger is anything you want it to be. Its called being creative.
