Ingredients

1/2 red onions, thinly sliced 80 g
1/2 green peppers, cut into strips 80 g
3 Italian sausages 220 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1/2 tsp fennel seeds 1 g
2 hamburger buns
1 bocconcini / fresh mozzarella, sliced 55 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. Prepare the vegetables: Thinly slice the onion(s); cut the pepper(s) into strips. Remove the skin from the sausage and form the meat into 1,5 cm thick patties. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté 3 min until it becomes translucent. Add the green pepper and fennel seeds, then season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium-low heat until the vegetables are tender and start to caramelize, about 15 min. Remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the grill. Cook the patties until they are well done, about 4 min per side. Warm up the buns on the grill. Put one patty on each bun, garnish with the onion mixture, then top with a bocconcini slice. If desired, you may put the burger back on the grill until the cheese has melted. Alternatively, you may cook the patties in a pan on the stovetop.
  4. Serve.

Simple and delicious. Bought sausage meat to avoid the required 'sausage surgery' and it made the recipe super-easy. Cooked in my 'George Foreman Grill'. Delicious cooked vegetables, and liked the bocconcini even though I bought cocktail size accidentally and had to top with several little half-balls of cheese. My 2 year old loved it served with the Apple Coleslaw. Yum!

This was so delicious and easy! I sprinkled the burgers with a little bit cheddar cheese instead of using bocconcini. My husband put sauerkraut on his instead of the onion and peppers. Will definitely be making this recipe again.

Absolutely wonderful! The sauteed onion with pepper and fennel do great things with the sausage meat, (cooked in skillet instead of BBQ). Used red instead of green pepper, spanish instead of red onion. A little disappointed in the Boccacini cheese - VERY flavorless - would use something different next time.
