Caesar Salad Beef Burgers on Garlic Crostini

1-1/2 pounds ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Salt and pepper
4 romaine lettuce leaves
1/4 cup freshly shaved or grated Parmesan cheese
Romaine lettuce leaves (optional)

Garlic Crostini

8 slices sourdough bread (about 4 x 3 x 1/2-inch)
Extra virgin olive oil
2 large cloves garlic, cut lengthwise into quarters

Combine ground beef, minced garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in
large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 3/4-inch
thick patties, shaping to fit the bread slices.

Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 13 to 15
minutes to medium (160F) doneness, until not pink in center and juices show no
pink color, turning occasionally.

Season with salt and pepper, as desired.

Meanwhile brush both sides of bread slices lightly with oil. Place bread around
outer edge of grid. Grill a few minutes until lightly toasted, turning once.

Remove bread from grid; rub both sides of each slice with a garlic quarter.

Place one lettuce leaf on four of the crostini, top each with a burger. Sprinkle
evenly with cheese, cover with remaining crostini.

Cut burgers in half, if desired, arrange on lettuce-lined platter, if desired.

Makes 4 Servings

Cooking Note: Use a vegetable peeler to shave Parmesan cheese quickly.
