Toasted French Bread

  • 4 large slices French or Italian bread
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • tsp salt

Bruschetta Topping

  • 1 ½ c diced roma tomatoes diced
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon minced garlic

Burger Patty

  • 1 lb 80/20 ground beef
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ tsp minced garlic

Other Toppings

  • fresh basil leaves
  • 4 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
  • balsamic glaze


Prepare the "bun"

  • In a small bowl, combine the oil, garlic powder and salt.
  • Cut each slice of bread into two pieces to form the tops and bottoms of your burger.
  • Brush the oil on both sides of each slice of bread.
  • Place a skillet over medium heat on the stove. Add the bread slices and cook for a couple minutes on each side until toasted. Set aside.

Make the bruschetta topping

  • Combine the diced tomatoes, oil, salt, onion, basil, black pepper and garlic in a small bowl.
  • Set aside until ready to serve.

Make the burgers

  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine the ground beef, salt and garlic using a wooden spoon or your hands.
  • Once combined (don't over-mix!), form into four equal-sized patties.
  • Heat the grill to 450°F. Add the burger patties.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes and flip the burger.
  • Cook an additional 3 minutes on the second side, or until the burger reaches an internal temperature of 160°F for well-done.

Build the burgers

  • Start with a slice of the toast then layer a couple basil leaves, the burger patty, a slice of mozzarella and ⅓ c bruschetta topping. Drizzle with the balsamic glaze and top with the other slice of bread.
  • Enjoy!!
