Pesto Burger Recipe

Pesto Burger


8 ounces ground beef

Salt and pepper

1 ounce of fresh Mozzarella cheese

Tomato slice

1/4 cup fresh Basil pesto

1 cornmeal dusted Kaiser roll, butter toasted

How to make Pesto Burger

Season the beef and form into a thick patty, do not pack the beef too tightly.

Grill the burger to desired internal temperature.

Top the burger with the tomato and fresh Mozzarella, and briefly place under a broiler to slightly melt the cheese.

Spoon the Pesto over the top of the burger and serve on toaster bun.

    This looks like a fantastic burger. The basil pesto, tomato and mozzarella to make it a kind of "caprese" burger is a great idea.

    Thanks Muttoneer, I didn't think of "Caprese Burger"-might be a more attractive handle.
