How To Make apple pancetta manchego burgers on balsamic greens
In a medium bowl, mix together the beef, pancetta, salt and pepper to taste and dried rosemary. Form into four patties and refrigerate until ready to cook.
Spread 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard onto all of the four focaccia bun tops.
Heat olive oil in a grill pan to medium high heat and grill the onion slices until softened and browned on the edges.
While onions cook, dress the greens: In a medium bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey and minced shallot. Toss with greens, then place equal amounts of greens onto all four of the focaccia bun bottoms. When onions are done, set aside.
Add beef patties to grill pan and cook for 4 minutes. Flip, cook for 2 minutes, then add one slice of cheese to each patty. Cook for 2 more minutes, then place patties on the dressed greens on each bottom bun.
Top patties with equal amounts of onions and apples, then add the top buns. Serve immediately.
