You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Prepare Ingredients and Roast Potatoes
Quarter potato lengthwise. Cut into ½" pieces. Place on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Spread into a single layer. Roast 20 minutes.
Potatoes will finish cooking in a later step.
While potatoes roast, halve and peel onion. Cut halves into ¼" slices.
Mince garlic and combine with 1 tsp. olive oil.
Core tomato and cut into ¼" slices.
Make Pesto-Mayo and Form Patties
Combine half the pesto (reserve remaining for mozzarella) and mayonnaise in a mixing bowl.
Combine remaining pesto and mozzarella in another mixing bowl.
Form ground beef into four equal-sized patties (about ½" thick and 4" in diameter). Divide mozzarella-pesto mix between the middle of two burger patties. Place remaining patties on cheese-topped patties and seal edges by pinching lightly. A tight seal helps cheese stay in burger while cooking.
Cook Onions and Toast Buns
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add onions to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 5-7 minutes.
Add balsamic vinegar and stir occasionally, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner. Transfer onions to a plate.
Wipe pan clean and reserve.
While onions cook, halve buns, if necessary. Place cut side down directly on oven rack and toast until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
FInish Potatoes and Cook Burgers
After potatoes have roasted 20 minutes, drizzle with garlic-oil mixture. Roast until garlic is fragrant and potatoes are lightly browned, 5 minutes.
While potatoes roast, return pan used to cook onions to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add burgers to hot pan and cook until burgers reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-6 minutes per side.
Cheese may leak from burgers. Don't worry, they're still delicious!
Remove from burner.
