I made these burgers last week. They were really good and I want them on the blog so I can easily make them again and so you can try them! (Actually, a lot of the recipes I made last week will probably appear on the blog since they were quick, easy and tasty!) Burgers are a great busy weeknight meal because they can be prepared the night before if needed and then cooked the next day. This burger has a delicious peanut slaw that really “makes” the burger and gives it a nice crunch. For kids who may not like the slaw, the burger can be eaten without. I served these with fries because who doesn’t love a burger with fries?!
