I'm not sure where I first saw this recipe, but I'm glad I did! My family requests these burgers often. A dash of oregano livens up canned pizza sauce. - Sharon Schwartz, Burlington, Wisconsin

"My girlfriends mom used to make a similar recipe but the recipe is slightly different. She used SPAM with the ground beef, tomato soup and paste along with Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese (preferably Crackerbarrel). I have since modified the recipe and use pizza sauce in mine sometimes for variation, throw in some sliced pepperoni. My daughter now makes these for her family."
