STURF burger

Pairs well with:

Pinot Grigio

You won’t need a bouquet of flowers when you share our Pinot Grigio. This crisp wine with floral aromas is a wonderful way to make an entrance.

I LOVE surf and turf …hence the name “STURF” when ever my husband and I go out to dinner we, most often than not, get steak and shrimp.It is our favorite. When out with my husband, although enjoying his company, the build a better burger is always on the foreground of my mind! That night I was toying with the idea of making this combo into a burger. a couple nights later I put my thoughts into a recipe and came up with this most delicious burger. NOW, my husband and I may just want to stay home for burger, instead of a restraunt surf and turf!
