1 pound ground beef or hamburger meat
half a 3.5 ounce package Buffalo Mozzarella
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon mixed herbs
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 Italian style bread rolls (split)
Oil and butter for cooking
The success of this recipe lies solely on the freshness and quality of the Buffalo Mozzarella used so find a local Italian market/deli or buy from one of the online gourmet cheese sellers. The Buffalo Mozzarella should be packaged in liquid in a ball of around 3.5 ounces – do not use the shredded stuff.
Start by gently sauteeing the chopped onion with some butter in a skillet over a medium to low heat until they begin to brown, this should take 5-7 minutes.
Now combine the beef or hamburger meat, minced garlic, herbs and seasoning in a large bowl and mix well, then mix in the cooked onion.
Shape the mixture into 4 patties with your hands and fry in a little oil for 4-5 minutes each side making sure the meat is fully cooked. Add a thick slice of Buffalo Mozzarella to each patty about 90 seconds before cooking is done, to melt the cheese.
