A picture may be worth a thousand words, but since my pictures didn't turn out so well with these man/woman/child friendly burgers, I'll just let this simple math problem illustrate the 1000 words for you instead.
Burgers + Pizza + Garlic Bread = DELICIOUS SUMMER BBQ FOOD!
Source: Taste of Home
6 pieces frozen garlic Texas toast
1-3/4 lbs. ground beef
1 cup pizza sauce, divided
18 slices pepperoni
12 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (optional)
2 tsp. butter (only needed if using mushrooms)
6 tsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Sliced green pepper and ripe black olives (optional)
Directions: Prepare Texas toast according to package directions. Set aside. Meanwhile, shape beef into 12 thin patties. Top six of the patties with 1 tablespoon pizza sauce, three slices of pepperoni, and one slice of mozzarella cheese (I had to trim our slices in order to fit onto the burger).
Top with the remaining six patties and press the edges firmly to seal. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute mushrooms in butter for about 5 minutes (or until soft). Top burgers with remaining pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Cover and cook 3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve burgers on Texas toast with mushrooms, olives, Parmesan cheese, peppers, and olives. Makes 6 burgers. Enjoy!
