In a large bowl, combine ground meat, parmesan cheese, garlic, basil, and Traditional Balsamic.

Add patties and cook until seared on bottom, about 6 min. Flip and cook until lightly seared, about 4 min. Then top with mozzarella. Cover skillet and cook until cheese melts and chicken is cooked through, 2-3 min. more. Slice tomatoes in half. Do not cut from stem to stem. Season bottom tomato halves with salt and pepper. Top tomatoes with baby spinach, burgers, and basil, then drizzle with Olive Basin Estilo "Affinato" di Modena Balsamic Vinegar. Top with remaining tomato halves and serve immediately.
