Bruschetta Burger Recipe

    6 Servings


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh basil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 pound mozzarella cheese, cut into 6 slices
  • 1 loaf italian bread
  • tablespoon olive oil, to drizzle
  • 1 clove garlic, cut in half
  • 1 8-ounce jar bruschetta mix


  1. In large bowl combine ground beef, parmesan cheese, basil, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Combine all ingredients, using your hands. 
  2. Divide the meat into 6 equal portions. With each portion divide it again in half when forming the burgers. 
  3. Flatten out one half, place a slice of fresh mozzarella on top and top with remaining half of meat, forming into a round flat patty, pinching the sides closed, so the cheese isn't exposed.
  4. Repeat with all the meat, making 6 burgers. Heat grill to medium high heat and cook burgers for 5-6 minutes on each side.
  5. While burgers are cooking slice the loaf of Italian bread into 3/4 inch slices. Drizzle with olive oil. Place bread on a baking sheet and place under the broiler, or on the grill for 1-2 minutes until toasted. (If you use the broiler watch closely so bread doesn't burn!)
  6. As soon as the bread is toasted, remove it from the broiler or grill and rub with the inside of remaining clove of garlic that has been halved.
  7. When burgers are done, place on non-toasted side of bread, top with a generous portion of Bruschetta and the other slice of toast. Serve immediately.

This was fantastic! Such a great twist on the normal, everyday burger. I just had to post about my adventures in making it, but I totally linked back to you! Thanks again for the recipe! Cheers!
