Open-Faced Grilled Caesar Burgers
- 1 loaf french bread, halved lengthwise
- 3 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
- 2 lb. ground beef (I use 85/15)
- 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
- 1/3 cup caesar dressing
In a bowl, toss together the romaine and the caesar dressing. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
In a medium bowl, season the ground beef with salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese. Mix to combine, but be mindful not to over-mix the meat. Form into 4 even-sized burger patties.
Grill the burgers for a couple of minutes before flipping to the other side for 1-2 minutes more, for medium, longer for more done-ness.
Remove the burgers from the heat and allow to rest for a couple of minutes while you grill the bread. Slather the melted butter on the cut-side of the bread and grill until lightly crisp and warm. Cut into fourths. Top with the cooked burgers and caesar salad. Serve warm.
