Bruschetta Burger Sliders
1 lb 90% Lean Ground Beef
2 TBSP Jarred Pesto ( I used the Whole Foods Brand)
2 slices of Mozzarella cheese ( I used Sargento Slices)
4 leaves of basil
2 Slices of tomato ¼ inch thick
6 small buns ( I used Challah buns from Whole Foods)
In a medium bowl, add ground beef and pesto. Mix together until pesto is evenly distributed. Make into 6 evenly sized patties. Wash hands and slice each piece of cheese into 3 slices, for about 6 total. Slice the tomato in the same fashion.
Heat a a saute pan to medium high heat. Once hot, add patties and cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Flip over and add cheese, cook until cheese is melted and the burger is done, about 3 minutes more. Take off heat and let rest.
Meanwhile preheat broiler and slice buns. Place under broiler and cook until buns are toasted, about 2 minutes.Remove and set aside.
Assemble burger: place burger on bun, top with tomato and basil. Add top bun.
