2 pounds ground round
1 packet dry Italian seasoning mix
Seasoned Mayo:
2 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
1 tbsp capers, drained and ground
½ c mayonnaise
Oil, to grease grill rack
6 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
6 kaiser rolls
12 tomato slices
4 slices sweet onion



Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover. To make the patties, mix the ground round with the Italian seasoning. Separate into 6 equal portions and form into patties to fit the rolls. To make the seasoned mayonnaise, add the oregano and capers to the mayonnaise in a small bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until needed. When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side. Add the sliced mozzarella to the tops of the patties and close grill cover until the cheese melts. Remove burgers and set aside. Place the rolls, cut side down, on the grill rack and toast until lightly browned. Remove from grill, and spread the insides of the rolls with seasoned mayonnaise. To assemble the burgers, place the burger on the heel of the roll and top with 2 tomato slices and equal portions of onion slices. Add the bread tops and serve. Makes 6 burgers.
