Open style beef burgers on toasted country bread topped with Italian bocconcini salad and roasted capsicum dip.
1. Set the oven to 200ÂșC (optional, see notes).
Slice tomatoes and bocconcini, drain eggplant (reserve oil). Arrange on a serving platter (leave some space for the beans).

2. Heat a griddle or frypan over medium heat. Trim beans, add to pan with some reserved oil from the eggplant tub. Cook for 2-3 minutes or to your liking.
Add to the salad platter, keep pan over medium-high heat.

3. Add beef burger patties to heated pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. Season with salt and pepper.

4. In the meantime, tear lettuce leaves and transfer capsicum dip into a small bowl. Take to the table along with the salad platter.

5. Slice bread on a diagonal and toast in the oven for 2-4 minutes (see notes).

6. Serve open burgers at the table for everyone to assemble their own with toasted bread, burger patty, salad ingredients and dip.

Use a toaster to crisp up the bread. Halve a garlic clove and rub on toasted bread if you like!
