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

  1. 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.
  2. Take your fingers and just seal the 2 patties up and refrigerate until you are ready to grill.
  3. 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.
  4. Place the burger in the bread, and top with your favorite condiments.
