  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 thick slices tomato
  • 1 1/3 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  1. Whisk the balsamic vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Pour over tomato slices to marinate.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Mix ground beef, tomato paste, basil, Parmesan cheese, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Form beef mixture into 4 equal patties.
  4. Cook on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes per side for well done.
