Grilled Tomato Basil Burgers

Hamburger Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 slices smoked provolone (such as Tillamook)
  • Hamburger buns
  • mayonnaise

Grilled Tomatoes & Basil

  • 3 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 basil leaves, chopped


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. Prepare the burger patties. Mix together ground beef, Worcestershire, salt, garlic and pepper together. Use your hands to mix well. Divide into 4 equal parts and form into patties. Make the patties a little bigger than the burger buns because they will shrink when cooking.
  3. Mix the cherry tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper together in a bowl. Toss to coat. Place on top of a sheet of aluminum foil and bring the foil up at the sides to close them, then close the top.
  4. Place tomatoes on the grill and cook 5 – 7 minutes or until they burst and release their juices. Remove tomatoes from the grill, allow to cool for a few minutes. Carefully open the aluminum foil and sprinkle with basil.
  5. Place the burgers on the grill and grill until cooked through, about 3 – 5 minutes per side. During the last minute place the provolone on top of the burger. Continue cooking until it melts slightly.
  6. To assemble a burger: place patty on bottom bun, spoon tomatoes over the top. Spread mayonnaise on top bun and place on top of burger. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
