Caprese Burger

This is a spin off from one of my favorite summer salads.  It definitely tastes as luscious as the photo shows. 

The Caprese Burger is excellent served from the summer barbeque or the winter indoor griddle. 

Pin It

  • 1 medium heirloom tomato, sliced

Form 2 patties and cook on medium-high in same skillet for approximately 4 minutes on each side for medium rare patty.  (longer if no pink is desired in center) Remove from heat.
