I've had this recipe for quite some time, but I'm not sure where it came from! This is a simple, easy, burger and absolutely delicious! Also, I do not always cook on a grill, and this is just as wonderful if you don't!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Mix sirloin, chuck, onion, kosher salt, and pepper together in a bowl with your hands. Form meat mixture into eight 3/4-inch patties.

  • Stir tomatoes and basil together in a bowl until well-combined.

  • Cook patties on the preheated grill until they start to firm, and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Place a slice of mozzarella cheese onto each burger during the last minute of cooking.

  • Place 1 burger on the bottom half of each bun, spoon some tomato mixture onto each burger, and place top bun on top.

Delicious. I never thought about putting basil on a burger. A little balsamic glaze or vinegar mixed with the tomato and basil would be good too. (Next time) The weather was not cooperating so I had to do these indoors in a cast iron skillet. Here is a tip: When forming the patties put a small indent in the center with your knuckle so the burger cooks through without shrinking. Thanks for a new take on burgers! Read More
