1 Lb Ground Beef 80% lean / 20% fat
1 Lb Ground Italian Sausage
4 Hamburger Buns
4 Slices Mozzarella Cheese
Parmesan Cheese optional
Pizza Seasonings (oregano, basil, marjoram, garlic)
Mix the ground beef, Italian sausage, and pizza seasoning (oregano, basil, marjoram, garlic) together.
Divide into 8 oz (1/2 lb) portions (or you can use smaller 6 oz portions) and then flatten into patties that are about 1/2 inch larger than the buns.
*Important burger tip– Put a thumbprint in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t puff up when cooking.
Grill your burgers about 4min on the first side.
While burgers are grilling, heat marinara sauce in a pan on med-low heat until warm. Heat pepperoni on a pan or on tinfoil on the grill for a couple minutes.
Flip burgers and cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes. Top burger with sliced cheese about a minute before taking off the grill.
Place buns face down on the grill for a minute or two to toast.
Add burgers to buns, spoon on marinara, add pepperoni & sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
