Mozzarella Burgers

Mozzarella Burgers- buon appetito! 

This recipe is quick and easy but presents rather impressively. I even managed to woo Giulio's bestie Tommaso who is well known for being the preeminent chef (and economist) of his peers.

  • Start with a large tomato (preferably heirloom and ripe) and cut it in half. Place the halves on top of a foil-lined pan and drizzle with olive oil and a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar. Slice a few garlic cloves and put them on top, then sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  • Bake at 425 for roughly 15 minutes.

  • Immediately place a few slices of mozzarella in between two halves. Garnish with basil and let it melt in your mouth!
