Excellent Aromatic Burgers with a Cheesy Surprise! Use some large lettuce leaves and you won't miss a bun. Excellent Aromatic Burgers with a Cheesy Surprise! Use some large lettuce leaves and you won't miss a bun.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    - 5 Tbs. Pesto Sauce
    - 1/2 tsp. salt
    - 1 tsp pepper
    - 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground pork
    - 2 oz. low fat mozzarella, cut into 4 cubes (you can also ball up slices at room temp)

Directions

Make 4 burgers. More filling and easier to top if using large lettuce leaves to eat.

1) Mix pesto, salt, and pepper in large mixing bowl
2) Add pork and mix but not overly so
3) Shape into 4 equal balls
4) Press cube or ball of cheese into each ball and form into a slightly flatter patty around the cheese
5) Use only a touch of cooking spray on non-stick skillet, heat to medium
6) Cook burgers through about 7 minutes per side.
7) Drain on paper towels (lots of olive oil will come out from pesto)

Top your burger wrap with grilled onions, grilled bell peppers, etc. Reduced fat mayo is good too, but not really needed. These have so much flavor.
