Rosemary & Thyme Patties for a Gourmet Burger

Try these delicious patties for a gourmet take on the average burger. You will love the flavor the essential oils add to these! We enjoyed these patties between toasted whole-wheat buns and topped with our Lemon Apple Slaw and Rosemary Cream Sauce (recipes below as well) along with a tomato slice, some avocado, and a little spinach! Mmmm . . . delicious! You’ll be licking your fingers for sure—and maybe even your plate!
