Italian german hamburger

We have been doing quite a bit of jogging/running these couple of weeks, and especially dedicate a pretty good hour and half of jogging on Saturdays. Strangely, exercise makes me crave for more protein and meat. Luckily, I get pampered when Michele heads up the kitchen over the weekend to make some creative meals. Michele really likes a juicy, tender, spicy burger on crunchy ciabatta bread. Since we had sukiyaki last night and I had enough red meat for the weekend, Michele went with a combination of veal and pork for burger patties.

It was funny that when we arrived to Central Market, Michele told me that they were playing Italian pop songs. Next thing we knew, we saw these red and green tags placed everywhere in the grocery store, with Italy sprawled across I guess it was an Italian themed weekend for the store to promote Italian produce.


For the cherry tomato relish:
one box of cherry tomatoes
1 chopped garlic
1 chopped jalapeno
For the burger patties:
2-3 garlics, finely chopped
half pound of ground veal
half pound of ground pork
a splash of lager beer
1/4 pound of procsiutto
3/4 cup of Asiago Cheese , dice
salt and freshly ground pepper
