Yields 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 onion, grated
  • 4 garlic cloves, divided (1 grated, 2 minced, 1 whole)
  • 4 slices fresh mozzarella cheese (or more, to cover each burger)
  • 3 cups diced tomato
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons chopped basil
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for rolls
  • Salt
  • Pepper
