Tuesday night I had a work meeting, but my family wasn't going to be home in time to eat dinner all together. I put together this "pizza-joe" and left it on the stove top covered. (There was about a 10 minute disparity between my departure and their arrival.) I wrote out the final instructions and the gang finished up the recipe with no problem. They even snapped a picture for me to share! It was delicious! Check out the Taste of Home link below for nutritional and freezer info, plus, other great recipes.
Open-faced Pizza Burgers
1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
6 hamburger buns, split and toasted
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the pizza sauce, mushrooms, sugar and oregano; mix well. Spoon onto buns; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
Place on ungreased baking sheets. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
To freeze for quick lunches later, place the split and toasted buns on a baking sheet. Spoon the meat mixture onto buns; freeze for 1 hour. Transfer to heavy-duty resealable plastic bags or airtight containers.
