“This recipe is adapted from the July 06 Bon Appetit magazine - The recipe called for pickled Okra & watercress as garnishes - neither were available at this time so I left them out of the ingredient list. The burgers may be BBQ'd or pan fried - I give the instructions for pan frying. This is a delicious burger where each ingredient distinctively adds to the over all flavor - The pecans are a must. It goes into my favorite burger book”
