Mozzarella Stuffed Italian Burgers

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


Step 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.

Step 2

Form beef mixture into four equal sized patties.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 6

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