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

  1. Preheat the barbeque to a medium-high heat.
  2. 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. 
  3. Divide the mixture in 4 equal portions and shape your burgers. 
  4. 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. 
  5. Move the meat to a large platter to cool off slightly and rest 5 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly toast the burger buns. 
  6. Serve your burgers dressed with lettuce, avocado slices, and tomatoes.
