Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! We tried this from the 30 Meal Kit tonight and it was a winner! We chose to put the burgers on a bun. Rather than ketchup on the bun, I used the Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Wow! So flavorful! We will definitely be making these again. I love grilling season!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So flavorful! I really enjoyed this meal! It was so flavorful and delicious. Plus it was so easy to make. Probably took me 20 minutes. The Citrus Herb seasoning makes the burgers really good but I think its the Pomegranate Vinegar of Modena that is the star in this meal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hit with my family! My picky eaters loved this burger!! For the kiddos I put it on buns. I made it ahead of time so I just had to cook up the burgers. Its still snowy here so I steamed them in a pan. These will definitely become a summer grilling staple!
