When guests dropped in by surprise, all I had was sausage and ground beef defrosted. We combined the two for juicy burgers on the grill. —B.J. Larsen, Erie, Colorado

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, divided
  • 16 Hawaiian sweet rolls, split
  • Optional: Lettuce leaves, sliced plum tomatoes and red onion


  1. In a large bowl, mix beef and sausage lightly but thoroughly. Shape into sixteen 1/2-in.-thick patties.
  2. Grill patties, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-5 in. from heat until a thermometer reads 160°, 3-4 minutes on each side. Brush with 1/4 cup sauce during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Serve on rolls with remaining barbecue sauce; top as desired.
    Freeze option: Place patties on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; cover and freeze until firm. Remove from pan and transfer to an airtight container; return to freezer. To use, grill frozen patties as directed, increasing time as necessary.
Health Tip: Make these with 90 percent lean ground beef and turkey breakfast sausage and you’ll save nearly 100 calories and more than half the fat per serving.
