Ingredients

  • 2 lbs lean ground beef

  • 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup plain bread crumbs

  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup of sun dried tomatoes, in oil, chopped finely

  • 2 tbsp of the oil the tomatoes are packed in

  • 1 small red onion, finely diced

  • 1/2 cup of chopped fresh basil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Hamburger buns

  • Slices of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil leaves, for garnish

Directions

In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, sun dried tomatoes, oil, onion, chopped fresh basil and salt and pepper. Mix well and form 8 patties. You can cook the burgers on the BBQ, in a pan or, as I like to cook them in my panini press, it takes half the time as they cook on both sides at the same time! Just cook them from 8 to 10 minutes per side or until the internal temperature of each patty is 160F. Let the burgers rest a few minutes before serving them. Heat or toast the hamburger buns, place a patty on each bun, then top with mozzarella, tomato slices and fresh basil leaves.
