Sophie Tate-ala's Italian Delight

This burger is a compilation of input from several family members, one of whom proudly volunteered her name.

Ingredients 

2 pounds ground chuck 80/20...
1 large egg...
1/4 teaspoon salt...
2 Tablespoons Steak Sauce...
2 Tablespoons Sutter Home, Family Vineyards, Cabernet Savignon, California 2001...
1/2 cup Great Value Italian Bread Crumbs...
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese-part skim...
12 large cloves of garlic (or 18 small cloves)...
1 cup Mayonnaise...
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesian cheese...
1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper...
6 Kaiser rolls...
3/4 cup Italian Dressing...
1 cup fresh arugala, rinsed and dried...
6 slices provolone cheese

Instructions 

Read through entire recipe before beginning. Remove ground chuck from package and place in large mixing bowl. Crack the egg into a small bowl and whisk with a fork until mixed well. Pour egg over ground chuck and mix into ground chuck with the fork. When egg is well mixed, add salt, A-1, Sutter Home Cab, Bread Crumbs and mozzarella cheese. Use hands to mix all ingredients into ground chuck. Set mixture aside in refrigerator for 1 hour; after 45 minutes preheat grill to medium-high. While ground chuck is setting, cut the 12 garlic cloves into thirds (halves if you use 18 small cloves). Set these aside. Measure the mayonnaise into a small mixing bowl. Add the parmesian cheese and red pepper. Mix well and set aside. Remove ground chuck from refrigerator and with your hands divide into 6 equal portions, forming each portion into a burger patty, a little larger than the Kaiser roll. When you have 6 burgers, press 6 garlic cloves into each, 5 in a circle and 1 in the middle (like a flower). Place burger patties on the grill garlic side up. Grill for 8 minutes and flip. Grill on the garlic side for 8 minutes. After flipping burgers, split each Kaiser roll and spread cut side of top and bottom with the Wishbone Italian dressing. After burgers have grilled for 8 minutes, place rolls cut side down on the grill. Grill burgers and rolls for 2 minutes. Remove everything from grill, turn grill off. Take a roll bottom and spread the toasted cut side with the mayonnaise mixture. Cover the mayonnaise with arugala. Add a burger and a slice of provolone cheese. Top it with the top of the roll, cut side on the cheese. Take a bite and enjoy.

Comments 

I heat my grill for at least 15 minutes before cooking. For this reason also, 8 minutes might be well done on a grill where you can control temperature. the 80/20 mixture allows for good flavor on my grill where I may cook longer than others. I truly hope you enjoy.
