3 green onions
1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
4 slices mozzarella or provolone cheese
1 cup pasta sauce, your choice
4 ciabatta buns, split and toasted
Toppings (optional): fresh basil leaves, grated Parmesan
- Preheat grill to medium-high.
- Chop green onions; place in a large bowl and add beef and seasoning. Using a fork or your hands, gently mix to combine. Form into 4 patties.
- Grill, with lid closed, 4–5 min or until cooked through. Add cheese for the last 1 min of cooking. While burgers are cooking, measure sauce into a Rectangular Steamer. Cover; microwave on high until hot, 1–2 min.
- To serve, place burgers on bottom bun halves. Generously spoon sauce over top. Add toppings, if desired. Cover with top bun.
To test burgers for doneness, insert an instant read thermometer sideways into the burger. It should register 160° F.
Try Marinara Sauce. Follow label directions—all you need is 1 can (28 oz/796 ml) each crushed and diced tomatoes, plus 3 tbsp of the blend. Simmer for 15 minutes and you’ll have 6 cups of sauce ready to go! Portion and freeze leftovers.
