These were DELICIOUS! The Chunky Pizza Sauce makes these burgers what they are, and it’s so simple to make. This meal comes together in about 20 minutes. We served the burgers with veggie skewers (bell pepper, zucchini, onion, mushrooms) that we also threw on the grill. If you love burgers…this is a twist on the traditional you must try! Enjoy!

Burgers Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb 93% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 small onion, grated
  • 1 1/2 tsp steak seasoning
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 6 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • 6 whole wheat burger buns, split and toasted or grilled
  • 1-2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Chunky Pizza Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can no salt added diced tomatoes, UN-drained
  • 3 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Pinch black pepper

Directions:

For the pizza sauce, heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; add the garlic and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, Italian herb seasoning, sugar, salt, and pepper, and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Keep warm.

To make the burgers, combine the ground beef, onion, steak seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and Italian herb seasoning in a large bowl, being careful not to over-mix the meat. Divide the meat into 6 portions and shape each into a patty.

Grill the burgers over medium-high heat until done, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. When the burgers have about 2 minutes left to cook on the second side, spoon about 2-3 tablespoons of Chunky Pizza Sauce on top of each, and then top each with 1 oz of cheese. Cover the grill so the cheese melts.

Transfer the burgers onto the buns and sprinkle the parsley on top of the cheese and serve immediately.

Yield: 6 burgers
