Ingredients

500 g ground veal, lean    
1 tsp dried oregano   1 g

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 to medium-high heat.
  2. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a pan. Add the peppers then sauté 2 min over medium-high heat. Cover, then lower the heat to 'low' and let cook while preparing the meat.
  3. Put the egg in a bowl, then beat lightly. Add the ground meat, oregano, mustard, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well using a fork, then form one ball for each serving and insert one cheese slice into each meatball. Flatten the meatballs into thick patties.
  4. Lightly brush the patties with oil then place them on the grill. Cook until the burgers become golden coloured and the inside has lost its pink colour (the internal temperature should reach 80ºC/175ºF), about 10 min. Turn the burgers once midway through cooking.
  5. Alternatively, you may cook the burgers on a nonstick, heavy-bottom pan, over very high heat.
  6. Place each burger in between 2 slices of gluten-free bread, garnish with the peppers, then serve right away.
