Open-Faced Pizza Burgers

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

    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 6 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink, 3-5 minutes, breaking into crumbles. Drain. Stir in the pizza sauce, mushrooms, sugar and oregano; mix well. Spoon onto buns; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  • Place on ungreased baking sheets. Broil 4 in. from the heat until cheese is melted, 2 minutes.
  • To freeze for quick lunches later, place the split and toasted buns on a baking sheet. Spoon the meat mixture onto buns; freeze for 1 hour. Transfer to freezer-safe airtight containers.
  • To use frozen burgers: Thaw completely in the refrigerator. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil 4 in. from the heat until heated through and cheese is melted, 2 minutes.

    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.
