Pesto Veal Hamburgers

A few years ago, a leftover of pesto and goat cheese inspired me to prepare a veal hamburger garnished with a pesto sauce and goat cheese. I had forgotten my recipe but the new barbecue season coming refreshed my memory…and I thought that you too would like to indulge. It is a fast recipe, the sauce and garnishes are prepared while the meat is grilling and the buns are heating.

I used a fresh goat cheese but I am almost sure that you can use any type of goat cheese. The sause is generous leftover sauce is also good in a tomato sandwich.

Have a good Barbecue Season!
