For the Tuscan Burger Mix

455g ground beef
1/4 red onion, chopped finely
1 handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, picked and finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg yolk

For the Toppings

4 slices cheese
4 burger buns
2 lettuce leaves
1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and sliced
1 tomato, sliced

Preheat the barbeque to a medium-high heat.

For the Burgers:

In a large bowl, mix the beef, onion, parsley, Pecorino, and egg yolk and stir well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.

Divide the mixture in 4 equal portions and shape your burgers.

Grill your burgers 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, cook longer for desired degree of doneness, or until an instant read thermometer inserted in the center of the burger reads 73°C for medium. Place the provolone cheese slices on top of the burgers the final minute of grilling.

Move the meat to a large platter to cool off slightly and rest 5 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly toast the burger buns.

Serve your burgers dressed with lettuce, avocado slices, and tomatoes.
