Beach House Burgers


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!

8 servings


  • 1 pound ground sirloin

  • 1 pound ground chuck

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 ½ cups chopped fresh tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 8 slices mozzarella cheese

  • 8 hamburger buns, split


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

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

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

  4. 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.

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