Remove roll from water and drain. Break into small pieces. Mix pieces of roll with ground beef, egg, cheese, chives and salt and pepper. Mix in 4 tablespoons finely chopped bell peppers and knead until combined. Form into 4 round, flat patties and roll in sesame seeds. Coat a pan with oil and fry the patties. Place onto grill or cook in pan for about 6 minutes until cooked through. Meanwhile, slice rolls.

Place meet patties on roll and cover with top of roll. If desired, garnish top with decorative bell pepper circles.
