Burger with buffalo mozzarella and pine nuts

Servings: 4


  • 900 g ground beef

  • 2 burger buns

  • 2 packets buffalo mozzarella

  • 8 tsp pesto

  • 2x a handful of pine nuts

  • 2x a handful of arugula

  • 2 onions

  • 1 tbsp olive oil (or aceto balsamico)

  • 50 g butter

  • 6 tbsp olive oil

  • 10 cornichons


  • 2 tsp rosemary

  • 2 tsp paprika powder

  • 4 tsp sea salt

  • 1 tsp brown sugar

  • 2 tsp mustard powder

  • 1 tsp chilli powder

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 4 tsp black pepper

  • 2 tsp garlic powder

  • 2 tsp onion powder


  1. Put all the spices for the rub in a pan and fry on medium heat for about 8 minutes. Stir from time to time so that nothing burns.

  2. Add the pine nuts to a pan and roast.

  3. Put the rub spices in a mortar or food processor and grind finely.

  4. Mix the rub and minced beef thoroughly in a bowl and cover and place in the fridge.

  5. Peel the onion, cut into thick rings and sauté over medium heat with the olive oil for 10 minutes until translucent.

  6. Remove the minced meat from the fridge. Form 2/4 of the mince into a ball and flatten. Fold the edges upwards and form a wall, creating a bowl-like shape.

  7. Spread the base generously with pesto and place the pine nuts on top. Cut the mozzarella into small pieces and place on top of the pine nuts. Now top again with pine nuts and pesto.

  8. Form the last third of the minced meat into a ball and press it flat. Spread pesto on the top, leaving a small edge. Place the patty top on the patty with the pesto side down.

  9. Press the seam well together with your fingers until no opening is visible. Be very careful so that the "seam" does not "open up" during grilling.

  10. Preheat the grill to maximum heat and cook the patty on the bottom rack for 90 seconds on both sides. Then raise the grill and grill the patty until it has a crispy crust (approx. 10-30 seconds). Now leave the patty in the tray on the bottom of the grill to rest.

  11. Spread butter on both burger halves and brown for 10 seconds in the top heat grill.

  12. Mix the arugula with the oil and balsamic vinegar in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Cut the cornichons lengthwise.

  13. Place half of the rocket on the burger base. Place the burger patty on top and top with onions, cornichons and the remaining rocket.

  14. Place the burger lid on top.

  15. Serve and enjoy.
