C made these delicious burgers last weekend. We saw something similar at the Cooking Demonstration at our grocery store and decided to try it out. The ingredients aren't what you would find in your typical burger, this one is jazzed up!
Here's what you will need:
1 pound ground beef
1 Tablespoon Spice Rub*
1/2 cup Pico de Gallo*
1 fresh mozzarella log*
Buns, condiments, fresh veggies for topping
*We used Stubb's spice rub
*HEB carries their Ready, Fresh, Go Pico de Gallo that is quite tasty in the produce section. If you can't find ready made at your grocery store there is a quick and easy recipe for it here.
*Slice the mozzarella log into thick slices, they will be inside the burger...mmm tasty!
First things first...
Combine the beef, pico, rub, and egg together. Form into four patties surrounding the mozzarella slices. Grill for 5 minutes per side or until desired doneness (is that a word...my doneness is WELL done just in case you cared)! Serve up on toasty, buttered buns with all the fixings and you have yourself one tasty burger!
From the very first bite, I was hooked. I have to say that I'm usually not a burger girl, but these might have converted me. The egg in the burger gives them a super tender, juicy flavor. It was definitely the juiciest burger I've ever had. The pico in the burger gave it a nice crunch, not what you would expect from your average burger. And the mozzarella...oh the mozzarella! It was like an inside out burger, with the cheese melted in the burger! I don't know what else to say about these burgers, other than we will be making these often. We were trying to figure out what other ingredients we could experiment with now that we've found the secret to a juicy burger. Any suggestions?
