Asiago-Bruschetta Burgers


With some delicious inspiration from my garden and Sartori Cheese, I whipped up the best tasting burger I’ve had in a long time!

Asiago-Bruschetta Burgers

Serves 4

1 pound ground beef (90% lean)
3 large tomatoes, quartered
½ glove garlic
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
½ cup fresh basil leaves
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

4, 1-ounce slices Asiago cheese (Sartori Rosemary & Olive Oil Asiago recommended)
4 whole-wheat rolls

Kosher salt and Freshly grated black pepper

Form the meat into 4 burgers. Season both sides generously with salt and pepper. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until desired doneness.

For the bruschetta, place tomato, garlic, onion, basil, vinegar and oil in a food processor. Season with ½ teaspoon of salt and pepper to taste; Pulse until combined. If possible, allow mixture to sit for 30 minutes for flavors to marry.

Serve burgers on whole grain rolls, topped with cheese and bruschetta.
