Italian Beef Sausage Patty Burgers

Oh, were these burgers ever good! My taste buds are still singing "That's Amore". Yum, Yum and more YUM! If you like Italian Sausage YOU WILL love this recipe for a burger!

Italian Beef Sausage Patty Burgers

One Pound Ground Beef
1 Tbs. Italian Herbs
1/2 tsp. Lawry's Garlic Salt
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp. Onion Powder
1/2 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
1 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sour cream

Combine all ingredients in your KitchenAid bowl. Using the dough hook, mix well. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated and the meat is whipped. I used the dough hook because all the other attachments were dirty. Use the dough hook. It makes a tender burger. Using wax paper and two dessert plates, put piece of wax paper on plate. Take one sixth of the burger mix, roll it into a ball and place on the w. paper. Take another sheet of the w. paper and place it on top of meat. Take the other dessert plate and smash the meat to make a patty. Stack patties on another plate. Once you have made all six patties, put them in the freezer to chill.

While meat is chilling chop the following. One medium red onion and one large bell pepper. Saute the onion and pepper in a pan with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Warm a little Trader Joe's Pizza Sauce in the microwave.

Fire up the grill, Take patties from the freezer and place on the hot grill. Butter your hamburger buns, set aside. Cook for 2-3 minutes and flip. Place buns on grill to toast. Make sure they don't burn. Once burgers are cooked, pull them off the grill. Remove buns when they are toasted to perfection.

Take a toasted bun, spread a little pizza sauce on the bun. Place a slice of Provolone or Mozzarella on top of sauce. Put a burger patty on top of that. Top the burger with a little of the sauteed onion and pepper. Eat and Enjoy and savor every bite.

That sounds so delish!
Have you ever mixed raw onions and peppers into ground beef and then grilled? That is great too!

Hi Jmisgro, YES, I have added peppers and onions to the meat. It is so delicous! It reminds me of my Dad's secret recipe for burgers. I will have to post that soon!
