Combine burger ingredients in a bowl, mix well. Heat a saute pan over medium heat, add extra virgin olive oil. Form mixture into patties. Mixture is fairly moist, wet hands or just press ball of meat out in the pan to flatten. Depending on size, you can make 4-6 burgers.
Use an iron or steel type pan for a crustier outside and flip the meat just once after first side develops its crust. A non-stick pan will also work, of course, but brown crusty outside is harder to achieve. Serve with lettuce, a slice of tomato with a sprinkle/pinch of Lake Shore Drive Seasoning on top, and your favorite Sauvignon Blanc, a dry Riesling, or a "Summer" Ale.
Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Spread on your favorite Burger Bun. Here we used Pretzel Rolls (photo attached).
