A second extra juicy and extra tasty burger with an Italian touch. The parmesan just adds an extra flavor and fresh tomatoes in tangy bruschetta brings a freshness contrast to the  hot grilled meat. Mustard instead of mayo has a strong kick and is way lighter then mayonnaise. As usual do not forget to toast the buns, so warm and cold flavors combine!
