Prep Time:
15 minutes

Cook Time:
10-15 minutes

Total Time:
25-30 minutes



  • 1 pound ground veal
  • 4 crusty bread rolls, split
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed chopped fresh basil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons Maille™ Old Style Whole Grain Dijon Mustard, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut in quarters


  1. Remove some bread from cut sides of top half of rolls, creating a pocket and place in food processor or blender container. Cover; pulse on and off, to form fine crumbs. Reserve 1/4 cup crumbs for burgers.

  2. Combine ground veal, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, basil, egg, 1 tablespoon mustard and black pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

  3. Place patties in center of oiled grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange peppers around veal. Grill veal, uncovered, 10 to 12 minutes, until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. Grill peppers 7 to 11 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally. Meanwhile, spread remaining 1 tablespoon mustard on cut sides of bottom half of rolls. During last 1 to 2 minutes of grilling, place rolls, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until rolls are lightly toasted.

  4. Cut peppers quarters in half lengthwise; place on roll bottoms. Top with burgers. Close sandwiches.

Chef’s Tip: *Discard or reserve remaining bread crumbs for other use. Crumbs may be frozen, tightly covered, up to 3 months.
