Mozzarella-Stuffed Beef Burger with Marinara Sauce



ground beef
mozarella cheese
garlic, minced
onions, minced
cheese slices
tomatoes, chopped
canned tomatoes
tomato sauce
onions, chopped
salt and pepper
burger buns


to make the burger:
1. Mix ground beef, onions, garlic, basil, salt and pepper together and form thin burger patties
2. Cut thin slices of mozarella and put them in between two burger patties
3. Refrigerate for a few hours, or overnight
4. Grill the burgers, make sure that they are thoroughly cooked
5. Grill inner side of buns, stack some cheese, lettuce and burger pattie 

to make the marinara sauce:
6. In a pan, saute garlic and onions, add chopped tomatoes until softened
7. Add canned tomatoes then add a small amount of tomato sauce to thicken it
8. Add oregano and some chili sauce, to your liking

I've always wanted to make burgers and I was so excited to do this. In fact, I made use of my burger patties very well, and you will see why, in the my next posts. Honestly, I did not enjoy the marinara sauce, so much because I felt that it was too dry or not so tasty. I was thinking it s probably because I did not put sherry, as I should've, it was still an awesome home-made burger --- so I was very pleased of myself. 

Bon's only complaint was that I made the patties too small (small in diameter, but thick enough), so there's more bread than pattie. If I would make improvements, I would really make sure to saturate the burger with the marinara sauce, or to maybe stuff the burger with some of it (like what they do in Good Burger). I think I will try that next time and then, let you know about it.
