Before you start

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


  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.
