Caprese Burger with Balsamic Glaze

Caprese Burger with Balsamic Glaze | Cooking on the Front Burner

Cheezeborger cheezeborger, no coke, Pepsi!  Today's June 12th so that means your #12 bloggers are coming to you with this month's recipe selection of BURGERS!  Oh my gosh, you are going to flip (as in a burger on a grill) when you see what the gals have cooked up for you this month!  And just in time for summer, you'll find a variety of burgers to please every palate!

I was really excited to create a new burger for us and as you may have noticed recently, I love anything caprese so it was a no brainer for me to try my hand at a burger.  And not to brag (ok, maybe a little, these were fantastic).  The DIY Guy loved them.

Oh and here is a fun fact about me - almost every Friday I have a cheeseburger, fries and diet coke for lunch.... it is my favorite meal!

Caprese Burger with Balsamic Glaze

by Cooking on the Front Burner
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: about 10 minutes
Yield 3-4 burgers
  • 1 lb ground beef (I used 85/15)
  • 2 tablespoons pesto (store bought is fine)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Tomatoes; cut into 1/4" slices
  • Fresh Mozzarella; cut into 1/4" slices
  • Fresh Basil leaves
  • 3 Ciabatta Buns
  • Balsamic Glaze (I got mine at Trader Joe's)
  1. Mix the pesto with ground beef and season with salt/pepper as desired
  2. Shape into 3 patties (or 4 if smaller desired)
  3. Cook burgers your favorite method (we used our gas grill)
  4. Cut buns in half and brush with some olive oil
  5. Toast on grill until light brown on cut side
  6. When burgers are done (about 5 minutes on each side for medium), place on bottom half of bun, top with mozzarella cheese, tomato, a few basil leaves and drizzle with glaze ending with bun top
  7. Serve immediately
