Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Shape the oval burgers slightly larger than the slices of French bread. They tend to shrink slightly as they cook.
Use your favorite small salad greens. Baby arugula or spinach provides a slightly bitter flavor that goes well with the grill flavor and blue cheese.
Grill seasonings are found with the other spices in the baking section of the grocery store. They are salt and pepper mixtures with other herbs and spices added.
