Italian Filling Ingredients:
½ cup diced baby bella mushrooms
1/3 cup fresh ground Italian pork sausage
2 tablespoons drained and chopped sun-dried tomatoes with
Italian herbs in oil
¼ cup finely shredded Italian cheese blend
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
1-1/3 pounds ground chuck
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
4 buns or rolls of choice (onion rolls, kaiser rolls, wheat
Mozzarella cheese slices, marinara sauce, whole basil leaves
Prepare Italian Filling: In large nonstick skillet, cook
mushrooms, sausage and tomatoes over medium heat 8 minutes or until sausage is
cooked through, stirring frequently. Remove skillet from heat; drain off fat
and cool slightly. Stir in shredded cheese and basil.
Meanwhile, prepare Burgers: Prepare outdoor grill for direct
grilling over medium heat. Form meat into eight ¼-inch-thick patties; sprinkle
with salt and pepper. Divide filling evenly onto center of 4 patties, spreading
filling to within ½ inch of edges. Top each with remaining 4 patties. Pinch
edges together to seal.
Place burgers on hot grill rack. Cover and cook 15 minutes
or until internal temperature reaches 155º for medium doneness, turning once.
Top patties with cheese slices during last minute of cooking. Serve burgers on
buns with toppings of choice.
