"I am always looking for ways to jazz up the boring burger and came up with this after having a delicious caprese salad. Be sure to use fresh basil and the marinated tomatoes are a must!"

  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. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Top each burger with mozzarella cheese; allow to melt. Serve on hamburger buns with marinated tomato slices.

This is a great alternative to a traditional burger. I prepared an Italian spread and the burger was the main dish. My guests loved it. Also I used Ciabatta bread instead of a traditional ham...

This was so good! I used turkey instead of beef and didn't use tomato paste because I didn't want to open a whole can just for a tablespoon. I'm sure it's good with it, but everyone liked them j...
