Weekend Recipe: The Oaks Burger

Support Provided By

This recipe from The Oaks Gourmet Market is easy to play around with: use the ingredients list as a guide, and use whatever proportions you like. The pineapple compote is an excellent condiment here (well, the truth is it's excellent anywhere), and makes this burger one of the best in L.A. Whip up this burger to toast the end of National Burger Month and the beginning of summer!
