Burgers Italiano

I had some leftover sauce and tons of basil and parsley from my garden so just decided to incorporate the two. My kids call them pizza burgers


1 1/2 lbs of med-lean ground beef
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup merlot
1 tbs freshly chopped basil
2 tbs freshly chopped parsely
2 tbs finely grated sweet onion
1/2 bell pepper, sliced in thin strips
1/4 cup freshly grated romano cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
6 kaiser rolls
6 slices fresh mozzarella (good quality)
1/2 cup red sauce (like spaghetti)


Put all the ingredients from beef to oregano in a bowl and mix with a heavy spoon. Shape into 6 patties, handling as little as possible to keep the burgers nice and juicly. Grill to desired doneness.
Placed cooked patties on bottom half of kaiser roll then tip with the mozzarella and a teaspoon of sauce, and a few slices of bell pepper. Finish off with top bun.


these burgers are really good with other things added such as pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives...whatever your favorite pizza topping happen to be
