Read on to find out how The Providore remixes these classics with just two ingredients.
Grilled Grass-fed Burger
Sliced provolone cheese
The Providore’s Tomato Sauce
- Preheat the grill to 450 degrees Fahrenheit
- Grill the burger patty for 3 – 4 minutes on each side
- While waiting for the patty to cook, slice the brioche bun in half and toast them at the side of the grill
- In the last minute of cooking, lay the tomato slices, caramelised onion and provolone cheese on the patty
- Cover with lid till the cheese melts through
- Once toasted, spread aioli on one brioche bun, some good old fashioned Tomato Sauce from The Providore on the other slice
- Top the lettuce on the toasted brioche
- Pile the lettuce on the other slice, top the burger with the other ingredients and serve
Ham & Cheese Toastie
One fried egg
The Providore’s Tomato & Red Pepper Relish
- Cut two slices of bread, roughly one and a half inches thick
- Place your butter on the skillet. Once it sizzles, rub the bread on the surface of the sizzling butter
- Without removing the bread from the skillet, spread some The Providore’s Tomato & Red Pepper Relish on the top
- Add some grilled zucchini, cooked ham, fried egg and emmental cheese on the slice
- Cover the skillet with the lid – watch the magic as the cheese melts for 2 – 3 minutes
- Take the lid off and top the sandwich with another slice of bread
- Squish slightly so that the top slice adheres to the melted cheese
- Flip over
- Let the sandwich cook on the other side until toasted golden brown for another 1 – 2 minutes
- Transfer the sandwich to a board, cut in half and transfer to a plate – ready to serve!
