Ingredients
1
Pound Lean Ground Beef
1/4
White Onion, finely diced
2
Cloves Garlic, minced
1
Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/4
Cup Flat Leaf Parsley, chopped
1
Teaspoon Salt
1/2
Teaspoon Pepper
2
Thick Slices Mozzarella Cheese
2-3
Tablespoons Olive Oil
2
Martin’s Sandwich Potato Rolls
1
Cup Prepared Marinara Sauce
1/2
Cup Arugula, to garnish
Directions
  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine ground beef, onion, garlic, parmesan, parsley, salt, and pepper. Using your hands, mix ingredients together until combined, being careful not to over-mix.

  2. Form beef mixture into four equal sized patties.

  3. Place a thick slice of mozzarella in the middle of one patty, then cover with a second patty. Tightly squeeze the edges around the cheese to seal the patty. Repeat with the remaining patties and cheese. You should have two (1/2 lb.) cheese-stuffed patties.

  4. Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat and add 2-3 tbsp. olive oil. Add patties and brown on each side, turning once after about 4 minutes.

  5. When both sides are browned, add marinara sauce to pan and cover, simmering for another 5-7 minutes, flipping burgers halfway through and re-coating with sauce.

  6. Serving the stuffed burgers on Martin’s Sandwich Potato Rolls, atop a bed of arugula, with more grated parmesan and parsley to garnish.
