 Cheesy Garlic Burgers
My husband and five children all know what's for dinner when they smell the garlic from these out-of-the-ordinary burgers. My grandma is known for her great recipes...this is one of them. - Connie Stewart, Lakewood, Colorado
6 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 30 min.


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder, divided
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 6 slices provolone cheese
  • 6 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 jar (14 ounces) spaghetti sauce, warmed


  • In a bowl, combine beef and 1 teaspoon garlic powder. Shape into six
  • thin patties. Pan-fry until no longer pink. Meanwhile, cut bread in
  • half lengthwise. Combine butter and remaining garlic powder; spread
  • over cut sides of bread. On the bottom half, layer provolone cheese,
  • beef patties and the mozzarella cheese. Replace bread top. Wrap in a
  • large piece of heavy-duty foil (about 28 in. x 18 in.). Place on a
  • baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is
  • melted and sandwich is heated through. Cut loaf between each patty.
  • Serve with spaghetti sauce for dipping. Yield: 6 servings.
You can bake Cheesy Garlic Burgers on six hamburger buns instead of on a loaf of French bread.
