How to DIY a Restaurant Burger
My restaurant recipe request column in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is a kick to write. I’m loving the stories from local restaurant families, the imagination of local chefs, the new techniques and ingredients I’m learning.
Every so often, a restaurant’s recipe is a house secret, not to be shared. That happened a few weeks ago – and the sandwich sounded so good, I decided to invent my own recipe! It turned out as a Greek-style burger, with feta and fresh spinach so instead of mayonnaise and ketchup, I mixed up a batch of Tzatziki Sauce.
Lucky for you, this new house recipe is no house secret.
