Make these pizza flavored patties and watch the kids devour them! Give them a try in buns for a pizza-like cheeseburger, or try them on rice or with a side of deli pasta salad for a super-fast fix. —Deanna Maciejewski, Bridgeton, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup pizza sauce, divided
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 3 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, halved

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 1/3 cup pizza sauce, egg, bread crumbs, onion, oregano, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties. Place on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.
  2. Broil 6 in. from the heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until juices run clear, basting frequently with remaining pizza sauce. Top with cheese. Broil 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted.

Can you freeze Italian Beef Patties?

Prepare uncooked patties and freeze, covered, on a plastic wrap-lined baking sheet until firm. Transfer patties to a large resealable plastic bag; return to freezer. To use, cook frozen patties and top with cheese as directed, increasing time as necessary for a thermometer to read 160°.
