Pizza Burgers

This is a delicious alternative to regular hamburgers.

Pizza Burgers
Serves: 4

1 pound ground beef
4 tablespoons dry Italian-style bread crumbs
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup marinara sauce
cooking spray
4 slices Provolone cheese

In large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, black pepper, & marinara sauce; blend well , being careful to not overwork the meat or else it becomes tough. Divide meat evenly to form into 4 patties. Arrange patties in a large skillet lightly coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat; brown patties for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until they reach desired level of doneness. Place 1 piece of cheese on each patty and continue to cook for 1 minute or until cheese melts.

Serve on buns with lettuce and tomato, if you desire. I often eat this bunless with cottage cheese and a green salad.
