The perfect summertime meal, with a little “step up’!



Turn on broiler to 500 degrees and move the oven rack to middle of oven. While oven is warming, line the broiler pan with foil and brush with olive oil. In a large bowl, mix the ground sirloin with your erbs of choice, chopped basil, and garlic. Mix gently but do not over mix or the burgers will be tough. Form mixture into 4 patties.

Place patties on the prepared broiler pan and broil 6-8 minutes on each side for a medium well burger.While burgers are cooking, drizzle Tuscan Herb EVOO on hamburger buns and place onto baking sheet with oiled side up.

Once burgers are done, put buns under the broiler to toast. When they are golden brown, assemble the burgers by placing a bun on the bottom, then the burger, a slice of mozzarella, a slice of tomato, and more fresh chopped basil. Drizzle each burger with a little Tuscan Herb EVOO and Traditional Balsamic. Place the remaining bun on top and serve.
