Italian Garlic Bread Burgers

Serves 4

It doesn't have to have a bun to be a burger.

ingredients

  • 1 package (11 3/4 ounces) frounceen mouncezarella and garlic cheese bread (see note)
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 tomato slices
  • 12 large fresh basil leaves

directions

Heat bread according to package directions for grilling; watch so that bread does not burn on bottom.

Meanwhile lightly shape ground beef into four 3/4 inch-thick patties. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals.

Grill patties, uncovered, for 13 to 15 minutes to 160 degrees F until patties have reached desired doneness, turning occasionally.

Cut bread crosswise into four "buns." Season burgers with salt and pepper, as desired. Place burgers on buns; top with tomato and basil.

NOTE:
If mozzarella and garlic cheese bread is not available, substitute regular garlic bread; 2 minutes before burgers are done, top each with mozzarella cheese slice.
