  2. Cut mozzarella into 1/4 inch pieces. On top of one patty, scatter 4-5 mozzarella pieces throughout the center of the meat leaving a little space between each cube. Be careful not to put cheese too close to the edges or it will leak out during grilling.

  4. Cut off the top of the red bell pepper and remove seeds and core. Then slice into 1/4 rings and brush lightly with olive oil.Pesto Sauce: In a dry frying pan, quickly toast the pine nuts. Should take less than 3 minutes. In a food processor, pulse basil leaves, toasted pine nuts and salt & pepper. simultaneously adding olive oil through the feed tube. Once good puree is achieved, add the mayo and pulse 2-3 more times, scraping sides to make sure its thoroughly mixed. Cook burgers meat over low to medium heat. Be sure to coat grill with non-stick spray. Cook about 8-10 minutes on each side. Try not to flip the burger too often as it tends to crumble. If the mozzarella starts to ooze out, don't worry... that's a sign that your burger is almost done.
  5. Place red pepper rings on the upper or outer edges of grill. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side.
  6. Brush olive oil on the insides of both halves of the sourdough buns and also place on the upper or outer edges of grill.
  7. Remove when lightly toasted.
