These simple burgers Italian style combine tastes, colors and textures amazingly well!
For 6 burgers, you'll need:
- 6 ciabatta rolls
- 400g/14oz of beef or buffalo mince
- 200g/7oz of our creamy buffalo ricotta cheese
- 4 spring onions, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp of capers
- 1 sprig of rosemary, leaves picked
- sea salt and ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp of olive oil for frying
To make your own relish you'll need 100g/3.5oz of sundried tomatoes and 1 tbsp of sherry vinegar.
First, in a large mixing bowl mix together the beef mince, ricotta, spring onions, capers and picked rosemary. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Then, using your hands make ball shapes of the mixture to approximately the size of your palm. Pan fry the burgers in olive oil for 6-8 minutes per side or until thoroughly cooked.
For the relish, chop the sun-dried tomatoes and mix with a little olive oil. Add the sherry vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
When the patties are cooked, assemble the burgers with a generous spreading of sun-dried tomato relish. Serve in the rolls.
You can add a few slices of tasty tomatoes or a mix of green leaves to your liking!
