I think burgers are becoming my new pizza, in that the varieties are endless! After having pesto in a turkey burger I knew I had to try it in a beef burger. Is it any surprise that it was just as amazing? Because that’s all I’ve got to say about these.
I went ahead and served it with garlic parmesan fries. Yay! (Obviously I was too excited to eat to worry about the quality of the photo…)
Makes 8 burgers
1/2 cup basil pesto
2 lbs ground beef
1/4 cup Parmesan, grated
3/4 cup bread crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
1 egg, beaten
1/2 – 3/4 cup marinara sauce
8 slices Mozzarella
8 buns, sliced
- In a large bowl combine the pesto, ground beef, parmesan, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and egg. Mix it just until all the ingredients are combined. Divide the mixture into 8 even burgers.
- Grill the burgers on a grill on high heat, covered, about 8 to 10 minutes, flipping once. During the last few minutes of grilling, toast your buns and top each with a slice of mozzarella, covering again to melt.
- Transfer them to the sliced buns and top with the a spoonful of marinara sauce and other burger toppings. Serve and demolish.
