INSIDE OUT PROFFITT FAMILY FARMS CHEESE BURGERS
Recipe by Charlotte Culinary Expert, Heidi Billotto
Reid’s Cooking School Director
As seen on WBTV's Morning Show - May 28, 2011 (7:20 am - oh my!)
2 lbs. Proffitt Farms ground beef (available directly from Proffitt Farms on Saturday mornings at the Yorkmont Road and Atherton Mill farmers' markets and at Reid's Fine Foods' award winning meat department every day of the week!)
3 Tbsp. whole coriander seed, toasted and coarsely ground
2 Tbsp. mustard seed, toasted and coarsely ground
1 Tbsp. sea salt
1 tsp. cracked black pepper
¼ cup sundried tomatoes, pack in oil, drained and chopped
1 Tbsp. minced basil
1 Tbsp. minced oregano
1 carton mozzarella balls
Combine all ingredients except cheese. Reshape into little patties, stuffing a small bit of cheese into the center of each patty, making sure to completely surround the cheese with the beef. Grill until the beef is at least to a medium temp. Serve on biscuits or buns or as in atop a lettuce leaf and tomato slice and finished with burger and bacon sauce.
