We eat a lot of burgers at my house.
Instead of doing our usual “burger mess” last week, I decided to combine two of my favorite things, beef and pesto, and make delicious pesto beef burgers…with a surprise inside!
Pesto Beef Burgers
1 lb ground beef (preferably grass fed)
3 Tbsp basil pesto
4 Tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese
- In a large bowl, combine beef and pesto. Get in there and squish it around with your hands until it’s well combined. Add a little pepper if you feel like it.
- Separate the beef into four 1/4lb burgers. Roll the beef into a ball and flatten it out on a plate or clean surface. Place 1 Tbsp of cheese into the center of the burger, and fold up the sides. Press the edges together firmly and flatten out the burger so that it will grill up nice.
- Grill ’em up and enjoy!
How have you spiced up your burgers lately?
