    with Mozzarella and Tangy Balsamic Greens

    Burgers are about as all-American as you can get, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have dreams of voyaging to fanciful, faraway places. These mozzarella-topped patties with balsamic greens on ciabatta rolls are what happens when cheeseburgers take a trip to Italy. At the core, they’re the same old burgers your kids will love, but with enough sophistication and dolce vita attitude to please the adults.

    Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and 2 tsp sugar. Cook, tossing, until browned, 6-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

    While onion cooks, mince or grate garlic until you have ½ tsp. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 TBSP tomato paste, 2 TBSP balsamic vinegar, 2 TBSP olive oil, and as much minced garlic as you like (we sent more tomato paste and vinegar than needed). Season with salt and pepper

    Wipe out same pan, then heat a large drizzle of olive oil in it over medium-high heat. Shape beef into 4 patties. Season all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook until just shy of desired doneness, 2-4 minutes per side. Sprinkle mozzarella on top of each. Cover pan and continue cooking until cheese melts, about 1 minute more.
