  • For the bruschetta:
  • 1 dry pint Pure Flavor® Organic Juno® Bites Red Grape Tomatoes, quartered
  • 1-2 tbsp organic garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp organic olive oil
  • 6-8 fresh organic basil leaves, chopped
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • For the burgers:
  • 1 lb organic ground beef
  • 2 tbsp organic balsamic glaze
  • 1 tbsp organic onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp organic olive oil
  • 2 tsp organic garlic powder
  • 1 tsp organic thyme
  • 4 slices organic buffalo mozzarella, thick sliced
  • 4 organic ciabatta rolls, split
  • 1 organic garlic clove, cut in half
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves, optional


Step 1

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, or 400° F.

Step 2

Prepare the bruschetta by adding the tomatoes, garlic and basil to a bowl. Gently stir, drizzle the olive oil a little at a time into the mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and allow to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes while you prepare the burgers.

Step 3

Season the ground beef with onion, garlic powder, thyme, salt and pepper. Press the ground beef into 4 patties. Grill the patties for 4 minutes on either side.

Step 4

Gently rub each side of the ciabatta buns with a garlic clove and brush a light layer of olive oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper. While the burgers are finishing cooking, gently toast the ciabatta buns on the grill.

Step 5

Before taking the patties off the grill, add the thick slices of cheese and allow it to melt slightly.

Step 6

Build the burgers by adding a few basil leave to the bottom of the bun, top with patty, a spoonful of fresh bruschetta, a drizzle of balsamic glaze and top with the other half of the bun.
