I think I’m getting this burger thing down! I had a bunch of basil left over from my Lemon Basil Chicken & Artichoke “Pasta” meal last week.
I figured why not throw the basil in some burgers? And if I’m going to have basil burgers well why not just plop them on some juicy tomatoes and top them with some fresh mozzarella? And so were born these Simple Caprese Burgers.
These burgers came out great, they were some of my favorite ones yet. I paired it with some parmesan quinoa and have lunch ready for the rest of the week!
Simple Caprese Burgers
- 1.25 lbs Grass-Fed Ground Beef
- 1 Cage Free Egg
- Sea Salt
- Cracked Pepper
- Garlic Powder
- Fresh Basil (chopped)
- 1 Big Juicy Tomato
- 2 Large Fresh Mozzarella Balls
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Add your egg, salt, pepper, garlic, and fresh basil to your beef. Mix together and form 4 patties. Throw on the grill over medium high heat for 5-7 minutes. Flip the burgers and cook for another 5-7 minutes.
Place burger on one or two slices of your tomato. Top with a few slices of fresh mozzarella. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and extra virgin olive oil.
These burgers made my Monday a whole lot better!
