Californian Burger

I wanted to make a different type of burger. I got inspired to create a Californian burger because I wanted to do something with some sundried tomatoes. Sundried tomatoes to me sounded Californian.

Wine Sauce

So if I am creating a California burger recipe, you need a sauce for it. California is wine, so why not create a wine sauce for this gourmet burger recipe?



Balsamic Wine Sauce



California Burger with Balsamic Wine Sauce.

As I mentioned earlier, when  I think of Californian cuisine, it is sun-dried tomatoes, avocados, red wine, and sprouts.  No, this Californian burger doesn’t have the sprouts. However, the truth be told I did look for some but the store didn’t have them.


For This Recipe You Will Need

The avocado and sun-dried tomatoes taste good and scream CALIFORNIA. It is the turkey bacon and the wine balsamic sauce that takes this California inspired burger over the top.
