Total time: 30 minutes 
   I used beef but these would be equally good with ground turkey or chicken.  If using poultry I would use white wine.  The crumbs, wine, etc. add a bit of moistness and a whole lot of flavor!

Total time: 35 minutes
   A reduction of white Balsamic vinegar, sweetened with a bit of sugar, give these the hint of potato salad, but keeps the crispness from roasting.
