  3. Brush polenta slices with oil.
  4. Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange polenta around patties.
  5. Grill patties and polenta, uncovered, 11 to 12 minutes or until patties are medium (160°F) doneness, and polenta is heated through, turning once and basting patties with 2 tablespoons reduced vinegar after turning.
  6. Season burgers with salt and pepper, as desired.
  7. For each serving, layer 1 each polenta slice, burger, mozzarella slice and tomato slice. Drizzle with remaining vinegar and sprinkle with basil, as desired.

Great burger! There was a bit of effort involved in these, but the flavors were great. The balsamic reduction added a lot as did the fresh basil. The polenta made these extra hearty with a creamy texture. I made my own polenta the day before and could have made the balsamic reduction ahead of time also, but didn't :) Made for the Went to Market tag game.
