We came home one day from a family outing to discover that our cat had accidentally opened our upright freezer while we were gone (to this day we do not know how she did it).
I wanted to create a burger that uses the best ingredients from the whole Iberian peninsula, which includes both Spain and Portugal.
This burger contains a bit of Illinois with the bella mushrooms that are grown in Illinois.
