I think that the best part of being in a community of food bloggers is that there is always something mouthwatering waiting to take a spot on your next meal plan.
Wyoming has been having really odd winter weather lately. It has been in the mid-50s but the wind has been gusting 30-40 mph all the time. The other day, we caught a mid-afternoon break in the wind and decided to get these on the grill. They were great for a windless Wyoming day.

I really loved these burgers. They didn't need cheese or any other additional toppings. They were very flavorful, and very filling. I didn't add the sesame seeds to the burger, but we didn't miss them at all. Jacob had his with Sriracha, but I had mine with just regular lime mayo. It was a perfect flavor combination with the burger ingredients.
