Tuscany Pesto Burger - Wildtree Recipes

Every day in July I am featuring a SUMMERTIME menu-a-day. Use this as inspiration or for your daily meal plan! Make sure you check back each day on Wildtree Cooking with Jen Warr to see what yummy menu I am suggesting.

#2 - Tuscany Pesto Burger served with Mediterranean Potato Salad.
Tuscany Pesto Burger
1/2 cup Wildtree Basil Pesto
3 TBSP warm water
2 TBSP Wildtree Natural Grapeseed Oil
1 pound ground beef
1½ TBSP Wildtree Tuscany Bread Dipper Herb Blend
4 slices provolone cheese
4 buns, toasted
1 whole roasted red pepper, sliced
In a bowl hydrate the Basil Pesto with the warm water. Add the Grapeseed Oil, stir to combine, and set aside. In a separate bowl use your hands to combine the beef and Tuscany Bread Dipper. Shape into 4 patties. Heat grill or grill pan to medium and cook until burgers reach desired doneness. Top each burger with a slice of provolone cheese. Spread the prepared Basil Pesto on each bottom bun. Top with the cooked burger, then some of the roasted red pepper strips, and the top bun.
