How to Make Sweet Italian Sausage Burgers


  1. How to Make them:
    Mix the first six ingredients together thoroughly.
    Shape the hamburger mixture into 1/2 to 3/4" thick patties.
    Grill the burgers to an internal temperature of 155 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Serve on grilled hamburger buns or ciabatta rolls with garlic-basil mayonnaise.
  2. Garlic-Basil Mayonnaise

    This flavorful mayonnaise is perfect for Italian burgers. It can also be used in sandwiches and burgers - anywhere you'd like a little kick in your mayonnaise. You can make the mayonnaise fresh (below), or simply mix minced garlic and minced basil into regular mayonnaise.
  3. How to Make it
    Place all of the ingredients except for the olive oil in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal cutting blade.
    Process until everything is well blended and the garlic and basil are finely minced.
    While running the processor constantly, drizzle the olive oil into the processor - first a few drops at a time and then in a slow, steady stream as the mayonnaise starts to emulsify.
    To save the mayonnaise, store it tightly covered in the refrigerator. The mayonnaise will keep for four to five days in the refrigerator.
    Enjoy Good Food
