Mexi-Mozza Beef Burger

  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 15
  • Total Time: 30
  • Serving: 6

Ingredients

1 ⅓ lb (600 g) CANADIAN LEAN GROUND BEEF


1 clove garlic, chopped


⅔ cup (150 mL) bread crumbs


¼ cup (50 mL) EACH chopped red onion and salsa


1 tbsp (15 mL) chili powder


1 tsp (5 mL) ground cumin


salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


Grilled Peppers: (recipe follows)


4 onion buns


8 slices of CANADIAN MOZZARELLA


⅓ cup (75 mL) homemade or store-bought guacamole


2 tbsp (30 mL) sour cream


2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh coriander

Directions

Combine beef and garlic, bread crumbs, onion, salsa, chilli powder, cumin, egg, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl; divide into 6 portions and form into 3/4 inch (2 cm) thick patties. Make a thumb-print depression in centre of each patty (to prevent rounding while they grill). Make ahead: Refrigerate, covered, for 1/2 hour or up to 1 day.

Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and cook, turning twice, until digital instant read thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty reads 160°F (71°C), about 10 minutes. Top each cooked patty with a slice of Mozzarella, warm grilled peppers and then a second Mozzarella slice.

While cheese melts, toast burger buns. Assemble burgers and top with a dollop of guacamole and sour cream; sprinkle with coriander.
