Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground chuck
  • Sea salt, preferably gray sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Fresh Mozzarella
  • Chili Paste, chili flakes or anything hot
  • 1 loaf good crusty bread, cut into 4 sections

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the grill. In a bowl, mix the meat. Form 4 (3-ounce) patties by using a scoop. Push them down and make little indentations in the middle to hold the flavors. Place a chunk of mozzarella and drizzle some chili paste or chili flakes on top of the mozzarella. Add a good twist of black pepper. Take another 3-ounce scoop of meat, make it flat in your hand and place right on top of the other half.

Take your fingers and just seal the 2 patties up and refrigerate until you are ready to grill.

Meanwhile: Split the pieces of bread, and pull out some of the soft center to make a hole for the burger. Place the bread face down on the grill to toast.

Place the burger in the bread, and top with your favorite condiments.
