Delicious and juicy burgers packed with flavor and grilled to perfection!

 

Tuscan Garlic Burger with Pesto Mayo on a wooden table.
I think that we can officially declare that it is grilling season. With the warm weather and Memorial Day around the corner I can’t wait! My hubby claims to be the grill master. I do all of the cooking around here, but when it comes to the grill, that is his territory. But I have yet to find someone that can make chicken so juicy and tender and burgers that are cooked to perfection.

He wasn’t around for the last family barbecue, so I had to make something delicious and grill it. The pressure was on. I made these DE-licious Tuscan Garlic Burgers. I might not have had the same touch as the “grill master”, but I came pretty close! 🙂  If you are looking for a crowd pleasing amazing and juicy burger, I highly recommend this burger! The flavors were all amazing in the burger. But I think my favorite part was the pesto mayo! I love pesto and it was just the right finishing touch to these burgers.

  1. These burgers look scrumptious! I don’t have any pancetta. Do you think I could use precooked bacon instead? Thanks!

  2. I served these for dinner tonight, and they were wonderful! I highly recommend using Italian rolls, as the recipe calls for, rather than traditional hamburger buns.

  3. Hello, I am not a huge fan of cooking but these were worth the effort! I have still been getting compliments and will be making these again!

  4. I live in an apartment and have no access to a grill. Can I make these in the oven or in a skillet. I don’t
