Chef Chuck's Italian Hamburger

Italiano Hamburger
A classic hamburger made with 80% lean ground beef, balsamic sweet onions, red roasted peppers, creamy fontina cheese on a ciabatta roll. Juicy and full of flavors it was just so good.


Italian Hamburger
1 pound lean ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
fontina cheese, sliced
red roasted peppers
2 teaspoons dry oregano


Saute onions in olive oil till translucent, turn off and add oregano. Salt and pepper the burgers, cook till desired temperature, I cook mine, medium 150-160 degrees. Place roasted peppers on top of burger then fontina cheese and melt under broil, then top with onions.

I have been thinking of how to make the hamburger an Italian dish, more than just adding some herbs, ya know?
