Notes

Picture of my Goat Burger VariationsGoat Burger Variation Infographic Guide
Follow the Goat Burger Variations Infographic Guide for a flavor adventure that is sourced straight from the Farmers' Market!   For example...
Step 1 : Select a Base
I choose farm fresh focaccia buns for my burger, but you could made it a wrap with homemade tortilla.  You can also create a burger salad with fresh greens.     
Step 2 : Add Vegetables
I choose microgreens and mushrooms for my variations.  Sliced radishes, turnips and beets also make a delicious farm fresh bite! 
Step 3 : Pick a Topping
Pasture-raised protein is delicious, but farm fresh canned salsa is also a delight! 
Step 4 : Add Extra Flavor to the Burger
Spoon or brush butter from the skillet on top the burger to boost juiciness!
