step-by-step directions
  • For the Pesto Aioli: Combine all ingredients in food processor and pulse until well combined. Put in container and set aside.
  • For the Prosciutto Gruyere Burger: In a medium frying pan, coat the bottom with olive oil. Sauté the onion on medium heat until caramelized. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cornflake crumbs, egg, milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Mix in the beef and thoroughly combine. Divide the beef into 4 thick burgers. Wrap each burger in prosciutto and place on a piece of wax paper.
  • In a large non-skillet, over medium heat, coat the bottom with olive oil. Place burgers in the skillet and cook for approximately 9 minutes per side or until internal temp reaches 140 F. For the last 2 minutes place cheese on burgers and cover skillet with lid. 
  • Assemble each burger by placing caramelized onions on the bottom roll, followed by burger, and topped with 1 to 2 teaspoons pesto aioli on the inside top of bun.
