  • 3 Place patties on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 10 to 12 minutes, turning once, until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F. Top each burger with cheese for last 2 minutes of grilling.

Tips  

To carry patties to a picnic or potluck for on-site grilling, pack them in a single layer in a plastic food container and keep chilled until grilling.

Ciabatta is an Italian flatbread with a chewy texture. If you can't find ciabatta, use a loaf of French bread instead and cut into 12 diagonal slices.
