Paired or alone, there's something magical about this creamy wine that nods to yummy peaches and sinful delights.

I’m always trying to add protein in everything we eat, so I decided to make a burger/pizza.It was a success!




2 pounds ground veal

1 pound ground pork

2 tablespoons fresh parley

2 tablespoons fresh oregano

1 table spoon red pepper flake

1 tablespoon garlic salt

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon ground fennel

1/3 cup olive oil

Misc Items:

6 Freshly Baked Ciabatta Rolls

1 tablespoon Ground cayenne

1 tablespoon Garlic powder

1 tablespoon Fresh oregano finely chopped

1 bunch of arugula

1 large tomato

2 blocks cream cheese

1 10oz jar of pizza sauce

6 thick slices of mozzarella cheese

Vegetable Oil to oil grill



To make the patties, combine all of the ingredients together in a large bowl, mixing together well to make sure all ingredients are evenly distributed. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions and form into patties. Set aside to continue marinating until grilling time.

Warm Pizza Sauce and cream cheese in two separate fire safe sauce pans on the gas grill over medium, stirring often, keep warm until assembling the burgers.

Heat the grill to medium about 325 degrees. When the grill is ready, with a cloth towel, rub the grill rack with vegetable oil to prevent sticking. Place the patties on the rack and close grill lid. After cooking for 5 minutes, the top of the patty should look like it has cooked a little. Flip patties, close the lid and continue cooking another 4, then add a slice of mozzarella for the last minute to melt. Do not push down on the patty because this will release the juices. Remove the patties from the grill and place the sliced buns, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly.

Chop tomato into thin 1 cm slices and prepare 2 cups arugula for burgers.

To assemble the burgers, top each side of the bun with 1 tablespoon of Cream cheese and spread evenly. Then sprinkle the top of each bun w a dash of garlic powder, a dash of cayenne pepper, and a dash of fresh oregano. Add 1/3 cup arugula to the bottom of the bun, then add 2 thin slices of tomato, lastly add the burgers to the bottom of the bun. Add the top of the Bun and enjoy!
