Pizzeria Burgers

As the mother of teenagers, I strive to find meals they like but that require little work on my part. I get many requests for these Italian-style hamburgers...I make them monthly. - Amy LaPointe, North Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

  • Makes
    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce, divided
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 6 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 6 sandwich rolls, split

Directions

  • Combine 1/2 cup pizza sauce, bread crumbs, oregano, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Crumble beef and sausage over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties.
  • Cook patties in a large skillet over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Top with remaining pizza sauce and cheese. Cover and cook 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve on rolls.
Use bulk Italian sausage and provolone cheese instead of the pork sausage and mozzarella in Pizzeria Burgers.

    I have a very picky husband and he LOVES this recipe. The first time I made it I ate it as is and he just had the patty with regular burger fixin's (no pizza sauce on top). I like it both ways. It is a regular on our menu at home now.

    These were awesome. I used turkey burger instead of beef! Will be making this recipe again.
