<p>Here’s a little change of pace for summer burgers. Make these with a mixture of ground beef and Italian sausage, grill them to perfection, then melt on slices of Sargento®&nbsp;Pepper Jack Cheese and add crispy grilled pancetta slices. Top with lettuce, tomato and your favorite condiments.</p>

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 Italian sausage, casing removed (about 4 oz.)
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp grated onion
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 4 slices Sargento® Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 8 thin slices pancetta
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns
  • 4 red leaf lettuce leaves
  • 4 slices tomato
  1. Mix together ground beef, sausage meat, bread crumbs, onion, tomato paste, egg, salt and pepper. Divide into 4 portions and shape into 1/2-inch patties.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat; grease grate well. Grill patties for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until grill-marked and cooked through. Top each patty with cheese and cook for about 1 minute or until cheese starts to melt.
  3. Meanwhile, grill pancetta for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden and crispy. Grill buns for about 1 minute or until toasted. Assemble burgers in buns with lettuce, tomato and pancetta.
  4. Tip: Serve with classic burger condiments such as ketchup, mayonnaise and hot mustard.
