3/4 cup Frenchs GourMayo Wasabi
1 cup sour cream
4 Roma tomatoes (seeded and diced)
2 tablespoons finely chopped Kalamata olives
2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
6 New French Bakery Ciabatta Brat Buns
1/2 cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil (for brushing grill rack(s) and drizzling over buns
12 slices Kraft Provolone Cheese
1 lb asparagus
2 lbs ground chuck
8 oz Kraft Crumbles Mediterranean Cheese
12 slices deli fresh Prosciutto
salt and pepper to taste
Prepare the sauce by combining Wasabi GourMayo and sour cream. To this mixture add Roma tomatoes which have been seeded and diced with finely chopped Kalamata olives and Italian seasoning. Salt and pepper to taste, mix well then refrigerate.
Prepare Ciabatta rolls cutting lengthwise then drizzle with olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Place 2 slices of Provolone cheese down the center of roll then set aside.
Wash and dry asparagus spears then cut into 5-6" lengths. Drizzle with olive oil then set aside.
Prepare 6 4x6" rectangular shaped ground chuck patties. Season each with salt and pepper to taste. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover or pre-heat a gas grill to medium-high heat.
When the grill is ready; brush the grill rack(s) with olive oil. Then place the asparagus spears on the grill, turning once during 5 minutes of grill time then remove from grill.
Next place one of the rectangular ground chuck patties on a 6x8" piece of parchment paper, salt and pepper to taste. Place 3 pieces of grilled asparagus on the patty lengthwise. Sprinkle with Mediterranean cheese crumbles. Use the parchment paper to help roll patty lengthwise fitting it to the entire Ciabatta. Remove the paper then seal the meat edges. Lay strips of deli fresh Prosciutto lengthwise over ground chuck rolls. Repeat steps with each of the remaining five patties.
Grill the ground chuck rolls 17-20 minutes, rolling them 3 to 4 times during grilling. After ground chuck has been rolled once, place prepared Ciabatta rolls on top rack of grill for 10-12 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove Ciabatta from grill and place grilled ground chuck rolls into Ciabatta. Spoon topping mixture over entire burger and enjoy.
