So, I've still got more tomatoes than I know what to do with so I am trying out a new recipe tonight...wish me luck!
A caprese salad is, without a doubt, one of my favorite summer salads and this combination is the inspiration for tonight's burger.
1 tablespoon pesto (make your own or store bought is fine)
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 pound ground beef (85/15)
salt and pepper
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into 4 slices
4 burger buns
1 large tomato, cut into 4 slices
4-6 basil leaves, chiffonade
1/2 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
Mix pesto and mayonnaise together, set aside.
Season ground beef with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Form 4 patties and cook according to your preference. Top with mozzarella and remove from heat. Tent with foil to keep warm.
Toast burger buns until lightly toasted.
To assemble: add 1 tablespoon of pesto mayonnaise to bottom bun. Top bun with burger patty, tomato, basil leaves and lettuce.
