Reviews for Broiled Pizza Burgers
"Have been making this for years....I use regular cheddar cheese instead of velvetta......I freeze it too so if people drop in I can make this us fast....delicious."
"Great receipe for a quick meal. No soggy bottoms and has a good flavor. I doubled the meat mixture and made the burgers up as I needed them.........even taste better the next day after all the flavors blended. Will play around with ingredients the next time I make them."
"I made these and none of my family liked them."
"This is the BEST pizza burger recipe EVER!!! I used pizza seasoning instead of oregano and petite diced tomatoes. I added shredded cheddar cheese to the meat mixture and put shredded mozzarella cheese on top. I also toasted the buns so they aren't so soggy. My husband told me to throw away my other pizza burger recipes!!!"
"This is definitely a favorite recipe in our house! I like to toast the buns a little in the oven before I put on the toppings. That way they don't get as soggy."
"Reminds me of a dear old friend who was the head cook at the high school... This recipe will hit all the bells and whistles!"
"I drained the tomatoes and added some pizza sauce and chopped pepperoni to mine...topped with mozzarella cheese. They were very good and my whole family loved them!"
"Pretty good and really fast. We enjoyed them."
"We used tomatoes with onion and garlic, added no salt, used mozzarella instead of Velveeta. It was definitely a hit in our home!Mellan :)"
"SOUNDS LIKE ALOT OF SALT FOR A SANDWICH PERHAPS ELIMANATING THE SALT ADDED AND USE ONION POWDER INSTEAD OD ONION SALT WOULD GIVE THE SAME TASTE BECAUSE THERE IS ALOT OF SALT IN PROCESSED CHEESE SO I DON'T THINK YOU REALLY NEEDETO ADD SALT"
"These are also great made on English Muffins, a little toasted first with a bit of garlic salt, and parm sprinkled on them."
"I haven't tried this yet, but plan to. My grandkids will love it!"
