Prosciutto Burger with Mushroom and Onion
Prosciutto is a cured Italian ham that’s thinly sliced, served uncooked and often used in sandwiches. Prosciutto can be used for other dishes, such as this prosciutto burger recipe.
Prosciutto is one of the most popular cured meats in Italy, especially around Christmas when it’s used to make festive appetizers like prosciutto-wrapped figs and poached pears.
It’s made from the thigh of a pig raised in the mountains of central Italy or Parma (the originator of these delicious meats). The meat is rubbed with salt and spices before being left to dry under netting for about 18 months. Prosciutto comes in two variations: dolce (sweet) or sotto aceto (under vinegar).
Grilled Beef and Eggplant Burgers
In this burger, eggplant is an excellent meat substitute. Eggplant is high in fiber and low in fat, making it a healthy addition to any meal. It also contains potassium, copper and manganese—all nutrients that help keep your body functioning properly.
With its dense texture, eggplant is perfect as a burger patty because it will hold together better than ground beef but still has plenty of flavor. This recipe can be made gluten-free by using gluten-free buns or English muffins.
Grilled Black Bean Burgers With Salsa Verde
Black bean burgers are a good source of protein, fiber and iron. This recipe makes six patties, but you can easily double the ingredients and make more if you’re serving a crowd.
The salsa verde is made with cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, onion and lime juice. It adds freshness and tang to these hearty burgers!
Serve the grilled black bean burgers on their own, or add some lettuce, tomato and avocado for a tasty meal that will keep you full all afternoon long!
