It all started with me running out of Parmigiano (gulp!) to make Nonna’s rustic burgers, so I came up with small crisps and a de-structured creation. Her original recipe calls for ground meat, eggs, Parmigiano, bread crumbs, parsley, salt & pepper mixed together, shaped in the form of a burger and grilled or seared. This reinterpretation wants the breadcrumbs sautéed in olive oil, parsley and salt; the ground meat shaped in a form of a patty and seared; the egg cooked sunny side up, all topped with the parmigiano crisp and some parsley leaves. Serve with your favorite side… Yummy!

Very nice. I just bought a 5 pound chunk of Parmesan. I hate having to buy the little 8 ounce pieces!!!
