Hey there, burger lovers! Are you tired of the same old boring burger recipes? Looking to shake things up with some new, fancy-sounding cuts of meat? Well, you’re in luck because today we’re talking about our Veal Burger recipe! That’s right, veal – the meat often overlooked in favor of its beefier cousin. But trust us, once you sink your teeth into one of these juicy, flavorful veal patties, you’ll never want to go back to ground beef again. 

What Are Veal Burgers?

A simple dish of veal that’s been pounded thin and rolled in prosciutto, simmered in sage, lemon, and white wine. Ground veal patties wrapped in prosciutto were char-grilled over indirect heat. Then, we whipped up a sage aioli to slather on toasted buns before melting some light Havarti over the finished patties. The burgers were light and loaded with flavor. The simple flavors of the aioli shined through. A perfect high-class patty for your next cookout. It’s one of those recipes that sounds incredibly fancy but comes together quickly and has the fans raving.

Some of our other favorite ground veal recipes are Veal Manicotti Florentine, Veal Burger with Roasted Squash Aioli and Apple Chips and veal meatballs just like grandma used to make.

Veal Burger Ingredients

FOR THE VEAL SALTIMBOCCA BURGERS:

  • Sage Aioli – this amped-up homemade mayo recipe pairs so well with these burgers!
  • Ground Veal: It is the burger’s main protein source and provides a tender and mild flavor.
  • Salt and Black Pepper: Use kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper when cooking. 
  • Prosciutto: It adds a salty and savory flavor and also helps keep the burgers moist during cooking.
  • Havarti: It is a creamy, mild-flavored cheese that melts well, adding richness to the burgers.
  • Buns: They hold the patties and other ingredients together and provide a sturdy and slightly sweet base.
  • Lettuce, Tomato, Onion: For the perfect burger!

How to Make Veal Burgers

  • Prep your charcoal or gas grill for indirect heat. Clean and oil the grate. Close the lid and allow the grill to come to temp. While the grill is prepping, you can whip up the homemade aioli recipe.
  • Meanwhile, season the ground meat with salt and form the meat mixture into patties.
  • Wrap the prosciutto around the veal and press. Its tacky nature will allow it to stick to the veal without falling off.
  • Place the patties over the cooler side of the hot grill to minimize the risk of flare-ups. Allow the patties to cook to 160 °F, flipping to ensure even cooking.
  • In the last few minutes of grilling the burgers, toast the buns and place the havarti cheese slice atop the burgers to let the cheese melt.
  • When ready to serve, spread the aioli onto the buns, and layer on lettuce, tomato, and onion, if desired. Place the cooked veal burger and remaining bun half atop and serve.

Girl Carnivore Expert Recipe Tips

  • Always dimple the thick patties to avoid the bloated effect as the meat expands for cooking. 
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the veal burgers. 

Leftovers & Reheating

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months. To reheat the burgers, warm them on the stove with a bit of olive oil until heated through. If you’re short on time, reheat in the microwave in 30-second intervals until heated.

What to Serve With Veal Burgers

Serve your veal burgers with Beef Tallow French Fries with Furikake, Steakhouse Keto Creamed Spinach, or Roasted Bacon Brussels Sprouts!
