Grilled Bruschetta Burger Recipe with The George Foreman Grill


The older my son gets it seems I have less and less time to do anything! He is a on the move toddler who is constantly doing something. This means I have less free time to do anything so meals need to be quick. Its been a very hot summer here mixed in oddly with rain, not the norm for us. Some days its too hot or raining to go outside to grill. Plus with my son running around in the back yard I find it hard some days to watch the food and him at the same time. I still want grilled food so I needed to find a indoor grilling solution.


Many years ago when my husband and I lived in a duplex we had a tiny little garden and a outdoor George Foreman Grill. We would make grilled veggies and chicken for fajitas. They were so good!! Now living in our home we have a much bigger garden that always has a bounty of fruits and veggies for us to eat. The hot summer days have grown many tomatoes and basil leaves. I have so many I was needing ideas on how to use them before they went bad.


I was excited to have the chance to review a George Foreman Removable-Plate Grill and enter The George Foreman Grill: Show Us Your Grill Skill Recipe Contest. This was a great solution for my desire to grill indoors. Plus I was able to be creative in my cooking.


I decided I would make a Grilled Bruschetta Burger for my entry into the contest. I used fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden to make the bruschetta mixture.


Recipe Grilled Bruschetta Burger:

Serves 4

1lb Lean Ground Beef
3 large Tomatoes
6 fresh Basil Leaves
4 Sting Cheese Sticks
4 Sourdough Bread Rolls
1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon of Pepper

Plug in The George Foreman Grill and wait until the grill is hot. While waiting for the grill to warm slice the tomatoes into thin slices and sprinkle with pepper and olive oil. Place tomato slices on the grill and close the lid. Grill for 3 minutes. Take of tomatoes and set aside. Shape ground beef into 4  patties and place on the grill and close the lid. Grill for 15-20 minutes depending on how you like your meat. While your meat is grilling chop up the basil leaves and tomatoes. Mix together in a small bowl. Grate the 4 string cheese sticks into a separate bowl. ( I find the sting cheese sticks make it easier to control portions of cheese.) Cut sourdough bread rolls in half and brush with olive oil. (you can toast your bread in the oven or toaster id desired) When the meal is done grilling spoon Bruschetta mix onto bottom side of the bread. Place the grilled meat on top of the mixture and add the cheese. ENJOY!
















I will be entering my recipe in the The George Foreman Grill: Show Us Your Grill Skill Recipe Contest. Wish me Luck! :)
