Ingredients

1x package calabrese specialty small buns

1 package of beef-pork meatballs (18-20)

Avocado oil for the grill

 

Topping Options:

6x slices italian provolone cheese

1 head butter leaf lettuce

6x slices pancetta, cooked

1x hothouse tomato, sliced

Sauerkraut

Basil Pesto

Mayonnaise

Honey & Balsamic Dijon Mustard

Piquillo Peppers

Instructions

  1. Heat up your grill to medium-high heat (about 425-450ºF). While the grill is heating up, make your burger patties by combining 3 meatballs per burger forming with your hands patties about a 1/2 inch in size.
  2. **This will yield 6 burger patties and probably 2 leftover meatballs which can be evenly distributed amongst the patties.
  3. Press your thumb into the centre of each patty to make an indent; this helps to keep their shape while grilling.
  4. Bring out the buns and cheese to the grill as well (if using).
  5. Brush a drizzle of avocado oil on one side of the burgers (the side that will go down on the grill first) and grill the burgers for 5 minutes on one side. Then flip the burger and grill for another 5 minutes. Add a slice of cheese on each burger patty until cheese is melted and burgers are done, about another 2 minutes (internal temperature reaches 160ºF)
  6. Remove the burgers from the grill and set aside on a clean plate to rest while you toast the buns for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Serve with your choice of sides like chips or simple arugula salad

TIPS

  • Mix and match toppings to your liking! You can put a variety of toppings to create a ‘toppings bar’ and let everyone make their own burger.
  • Avocado oil is great to use on the grill because it has a high smoke point and can handle the heat of the barbe
