Double Pizza Burgers


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I needed something to use leftover pizza sauce from the Mini Pizza Pockets as well as a pound of hamburger I had sitting in the fridge. That’s how I dreamed up this recipe.

ingredients.

directions.

  1. In a medium-sized bowl place the meat and pizza sauce. Using your fingers, combine. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the meat mixture and then shape into a ball.
  2. Place onto a plate pressing to flatten slightly. Using a knife cut the flattened ball in half and then cut the halves in half, too. (Cut into quarters.) Shape the meat into equal-sized patties and set aside.
  3. Prep your mushrooms, onions, cheese and Spinach and Artichoke Dip (for me this involved sautéing the mushrooms and onions, slicing the cheese and scooping some dip onto a plate.)
  4. In a large frying pan cook the patties over medium heat. I cooked the patties three minutes per side. I added the cheese with about two minutes left, then covered the frying pan. (They turned out medium-well-ish, which is a bit more well done than I like.)
  5. Now you’re ready to assemble. Nuke your Spinach and Artichoke Dip for about 60 to 90 seconds.
  6. Split your hamburger bun and layer as follows: bottom bun, patty, dip, patty, dip, mushrooms and onions, top bun.

Caution: this is one monster-sized burger. I call these pizza burgers, but the pizza flavor is secondary. The Spinach and Artichoke Dip was the overwhelming flavor, which is good, because it’s an amazing flavor.
