Ingredients

Tuscan Burger Mix:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon grated Pecorino
  • 1 egg yolk
Serving:
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 burger buns
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 lettuce leaves
  • 1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the barbeque to a medium-high heat.

For the burgers: In a large bowl, mix the beef, onion, parsley, Pecorino, and egg yolk and stir well until all ingredients are evenly distributed. 

Divide the mixture in 4 equal portions and shape your burgers. 

Grill your burgers 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, cook longer for desired degree of doneness, or until an instant read thermometer inserted in the center of the burger reads 165 degrees F for medium. Place the provolone cheese slices on top of the burgers the final minute of grilling. 

Move the meat to a large platter to cool off slightly and rest 5 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly toast the burger buns. 

Serve your burgers dressed with lettuce, avocado slices, and tomatoes.
