Reviews for Italian Beef Patties
"These are wonderful to have in the freezer, ready to go. I made the patties ahead, froze them on a cookie sheet and then vacuum sealed. I put the frozen patties into my slow cooker, topped with pizza sauce and cooked on high 3 - 3.5 hours. Served them over garlic toast with a side salad. quick, easy and wonderful. Highly recommend."
"Very easy and very tasty. My family loved it! I didn't have any pizza sauce so I used spaghetti sauce. I will definitely use this recipe again."
