    1. Spread meat into a single layer and sprinkle over salt and pepper. Gently gather together and form 6 1-inch (2.5-cm) thick patties (or smaller if desired, but keep the thickness). Fry a small piece to taste for perfect seasoning.
    2. Preheat barbecue on high.
    3. Grill burgers for 6 to 7 minutes a side for medium, or until desired degree of doneness. Top burgers with your choice of toppings.

    1. Place basil and garlic in a food processor and process until chunky. Add breadcrumbs and process again. With the machine running, slowly add oil through the feeder tube. When all the oil has absorbed, immediately shut off machine. Season well with salt and pepper. Makes about 3/4 cup (175 ml).
