When all I had available was ground beef and I was tired of plain-old hamburgers, I invented these. A good dose of Italian seasonings and mozzarella makes them unique. They're great with homemade French fries for a quick meal. —Steven Schend, Grand Rapids, MI

"These were really good! A refreshing change from the usual tomato sauce that is typically served on a sausage sandwich."
