Burger Recipe

Certainly! Here’s a classic Italian-style burger recipe:

Ingredients:

– 1 pound ground beef
– 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
– 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
– 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
– 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
– 1/4 cup chopped red onion
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 egg
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 4 hamburger buns
– 4 slices mozzarella cheese
– 1 cup arugula or fresh spinach
– 1/4 cup pesto sauce

Instructions:

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, red onion, garlic, and egg. Season with salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.

2. Divide the mixture into four equal portions and shape them into burger patties.

3. Preheat your grill or stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook the burger patties for about 4-5 minutes per side, or to your desired level of doneness.

4. During the last minute of cooking, place a slice of mozzarella cheese on each patty and cover the grill to allow it to melt.

5. Toast the hamburger buns on the grill for about 1-2 minutes until lightly browned.

6. To assemble the burgers, spread pesto sauce on the bottom half of each bun. Place a burger patty with melted mozzarella on top.

7. Add a handful of arugula or spinach on top of the patty.

8. Place the top half of the bun on top, and your Italian-style burger is ready to enjoy!
