Private Selection Moroccan Burger

My family loves burgers.  All kinds of burgers so whenever I find a recipe for a new and different kind of burger I try it.

The newest burger in my collection is the Private Selection Moroccan Burger with Mint-Pepper Glaze.  I paired it with a green salad an a Moroccon Sweet Potato salad.

As a BzzAgent I received a coupon for Private Selection ground beef at Kroger and knew that this was the perfect time to try this recipe.  I wanted to originally pair it with the Private Selection Sea Salt and Black Pepper Kettle Chips but those were so good I pretty much ate them as soon as I got them.

This meal was so yummy but be is spicy!!!  If you like spicy food than this is the meal for you if not then I would definitely alter the recipe to your tastes.  This is definitely worth a try though especially for you Grille Masters!!!

Moroccan Sweet Potato Salad

This sweet Moroccan salad works very well as a side dish to spicy meals, sweet tagines or roasted and grilled meats.  It's prepared by simmering diced sweet potatoes or yams with cinnamon, saffron and honey until a rich, sticky sauce forms.  Easy, sweet and delicious!  Click here for the recipe.
