Top 10 Alternative and Unusual Burger Recipes

Maybe it is just the animal instincts inside me, but I love meat! Steaks, chops, joins in fact anything meat based I can get my teeth into makes me happy. But now to the point of this post, I love my burgers as do many people reading this, but with all the food quality scares around maybe it is time to give up on the beef burgers for a while and try something else…
