Ingredients

4 sun-dried tomatoes (oil packed), finely chopped 2 tbsp
3 tbsp Parsley and Garlic Base 45 mL
1 eggs size large
400 g ground beef, extra-lean
4 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated 12 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
2 corn tortillas 90 g
1/2 Boston lettuce 100 g
2 tomatoes, sliced 240 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

These burgers can be cooked either in a pan on the stovetop or using an outdoor grill.

Method

  1. Preheat the outdoor grill.
  2. Finely chop the dried tomatoes, then put them in a bowl. Add the Parsley and Garlic Base, egg, ground meat, and grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then mix well until the mixture is well combined and smooth. Form the mixture into flat patties. To prevent the patties from puffing up, make a shallow depression with your thumb in the centre.
  3. Lightly brush the patties with the oil and cook on a hot grill for about 15 min, until the outside becomes golden-brown and the inside loses its pink colour. Turn them once halfway through the cooking. Alternatively, the patties can be cooked on the stovetop. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook for about 15 min, turning them once.
  4. Place each patty inside a tortilla. Add a few lettuce leaves and tomato slices then serve.
