  • 1 package Villaggio® Italian Style Crustini Buns
  • 8 Italian sausages, casings removed
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 4 oz (113 g) Fontina cheese, cut evenly into 8 cubes
  • 2 cups (500 mL) arugula
  • 16 tomato slices


Mix sausage meat with eggs and breadcrumbs until combined. Divide mixture into 8 balls. Stuff a piece of cheese in the centre of each ball. Flatten and shape into 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick patties.

Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high heat; grease grate well. Grill burgers, turning once, for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Assemble burgers in buns with arugula and tomato slices.

If serving for less people, divide accordingly.


Chill burgers for 1 hour for easier grilling.

Top burgers with mayonnaise and sundried tomato pesto, if desired.
