Tomatoes have a wonderful flavor when grilled, but they get very soft and can be hard to handle. We recommend grilling them on a grill plate or foil so that they do not fall apart when removing them from the grill.

    I made these last night (I have Gather in hardback and on Kindle, and absolutely LOVE it!) and my husband went bananas and said “these are the burgers of the year”. The spice blend in the recipe is incredible! I fried them stovetop in Chosen avocado oil and topped his with Shelbourne Cheddar and mine with Roquefort. I sautéed onions in the pan and lastly deglazed with a bit of ACV while the burgers rested and served them as a side along with sliced avocado and chipotle lime mayo. We have a great gluten free sourdough baker out here on the west coast (SRSLY) and I served them on toasted sourdough. Another winner from Bill and Haley!!!
    ps My Primal Palate cranberry orange scones just came out of the oven for Valentine’s Day. Made them for Thanksgiving, a huge hit! I like orange-cranberry, so I combined your 2 versions!
    You are both brilliant…
