These tender beef burgers have a special cheesy surprise nestled in the middle.

Ingredients

Red capsicum

2 medium, quartered

Lean beef mince

500 g

Dried herbs

2 tsp, (italian)

Bocconcini

25 g, (4 x mini)

Rocket

40 g, (baby)

Ciabatta bread

180 g, (4 x rolls), split, toasted

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill on high. Place the capsicum, skin-side up, on a baking tray. Grill for 5 minutes or until the skin chars and blisters. Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 5 minutes to stand. Remove and discard the skin.
  2. Combine the mince and herbs in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Divide into 4 portions. Place 1 bocconcini in the centre of each portion and shape the mince to enclose. Shape into four 10cm patties.
  3. Lightly spray a large frying pan with oil and heat over high heat. Cook the patties for 4 minutes each side or until browned and cooked.
  4. Place a patty on each roll half. Top with the capsicum and rocket to make open burgers.
