One Comment for “Grilled Eggplant Burger”

  • Yummy yummy yum! I tried this recipe last night (actually changed my dinner plans when I saw the recipe). It was DELISH! The basil pesto was a great substitution for mayo/ketchup/mustard. Next time I’m using pesto and tomato sauce, maybe with some melted mozzarella.
