15 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook

Serves 4


This is a very tasty burger which is easy to prepare and you can easily double the recipe to serve a crowd:)


Burger patty:

1 lb Ground beef
A bunch of fresh basil, finely julienned (thin strips)
A Tblsp of tomato paste
½ cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated
salt and pepper
a pinch of dried oregano to taste
a splash of balsamic vinegar

Basil mayo:

I don’t measure for this – use as much of each ingredient as you like to your own taste!

A bunch of fresh basil
Fresh garlic
Olive oil
Salt and pepper


Fresh buffalo mozzarella (the one you buy in the bag!), sliced thickly
Heirloom tomato (these can be expensive so just buy as many as you need – I usually only buy one large one for six burgers), sliced thickly.
Fresh basil leaves.


For the patty put all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Form 4 burgers. (you can make 6 smaller burgers if so desired). Grill on the bar be cue until desired temperature.

For the basil mayo put all the ingredients in a food processor and process until well mixed.

For the topping - Once your patty is in your bun, top your burger with a slice of tomato, buffalo mozzarella and a fresh basil leaf, and then with the basil mayo.
