“Meatball” Burgers with Fresh Mozzarella
Elevated Dinners, Impressively Easy
We know the “burgers or meatballs” question can make for a tough choice when it comes to ground beef. So here’s what we thought: What if you combined the two into one perfectly delicious and speedy dinner idea? Then we did it—we made a meatball burger! We top this garlicky Italian-seasoned patty with tangy marinara and fresh mozzarella, then load it into a soft potato bun that’s toasted with garlic herb butter. It’s served with an Italian-style side salad sprinkled with crisp, nutty almonds—all in 15 minutes!

• Halve and toast buns. • Cut mozzarella into ½-inch slices; set aside four slices (eight slices for 4) and dice remaining mozzarella into pieces. • In a bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and dressing. Season with salt and pepper.
• In a second bowl, combine beef*, garlic powder, 1 tsp Italian Seasoning (2 tsp for 4), salt (we used ½ tsp; 1 tsp for 4), and pepper. Form into two patties (four patties for 4), each slightly wider than a burger bun. • Drizzle oil in a hot pan. Add patties and cook to desired doneness, 3-5 minutes per side. • In the last 1-2 minutes of cooking, top each patty with as much marinara as you like (reserve any remaining marinara for serving) and mozzarella slices; cover pan to melt cheese. TIP: Be careful when adding the marinara—there may be some splattering in the pan!
• Wash and dry produce. • To bowl with dressing mixture, add mixed greens, tomatoes, carrots, almonds, and diced mozzarella; toss to combine. TIP: Plate salad as soon as you finish this step.
• Spread toasted buns with as much garlic herb butter as you like. • Fill buns with cheese-topped patties. Divide burgers between plates; serve with salad and any remaining marinara on the side.
