Italian Garlic Bread Burgers


1½ lbs. Ground Beef

1 package (11.75 ounces) Frozen Mozzarella and Garlic Cheese Bread

Salt and Pepper

4 Tomato Slices

12 Large Fresh Basil Leaves

Cooking Instructions

Heat bread according to package directions for grilling. Watch that the bread does not burn on bottom.

Meanwhile, lightly shape ground beef into four ¾-inch-thick patties. Place patties on grill and fry over medium ash-covered coals.

Grill uncovered, 13 to 15 minutes, to 160°F doneness, turning occasionally.

Cut bread crosswise into four "buns." Season burgers with salt and pepper as desired. Place burgers on buns. Top with tomato and basil.

If mozzarella and garlic cheese bread is not available, substitute regular garlic bread. Two minutes before burgers are done, top each with a slice of mozzarella cheese.
