Salami Provolone Burger

I was feeling kind of lazy, and I had 4 hamburger buns I needed to use, so I decided on burgers.  (only to notice a tiny spot of mold right before cooking and requiring me to make a trip to the store last minute :/)  Feeling extra lazy, I decided to try this Publix Apron Meal.  Now I think the Apron meals aren't bad, but I am rarely wowed by them, so I don't often cook them.  However they are really fast, easy and if you get the recipe they are demonstrating, all your ingredients are in one place when shopping.  This recipe was super fast and easy, even for a burger.  The only change I made was I cooked the cheese and salami on the burgers, on the grill a minute or two rather than just let them sit and melt.  I also used my homemade ranch and added a lot of freshly ground black pepper.  Over all it gets a 3.5  We all said we really liked it, and usually I think that would have merited a higher rating, but we have had some dang good burgers :)

Salami Provolone Burger

1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 teaspoon salt-free garlic/herb seasoning
4 slices provolone cheese (3 oz)
8 slices Deli hard salami (2 oz)
1/3 cup sweet pepper bruschetta topping (or roasted, marinated red peppers, chopped which is what I used)
2 tablespoons chopped black olives
8 teaspoons creamy peppercorn dressing, divided
4 Bakery French (or regular) hamburger buns   
Preheat grill pan (or grill). Form meat into four patties; sprinkle with seasoning (wash hands). Place patties in grill pan (or on grill); grill 3–4 minutes on each side or until meat is 160°F.
Top each patty with 1 slice cheese and 2 slices salami; let stand to melt cheese. Combine bruschetta topping and olives.
Spread 2 teaspoons peppercorn dressing on inside of buns. Place patties on bottom halves of buns; top each with 2 tablespoons olive mixture. Assemble burgers and serve.
