As promised in yesterday’s post, I am excited to share with you my recipe for Pizza Burgers. When I was a kid, my momma used to buy these crazy awesome pizza patties. They were the frozen kind, and I think we would eat them on toast. I can just remember them being simply amazing.
I decided today to recreate the pizza burger on my newly baked pretzel buns. The recipe is pretty simple, but I’ve added some necessary ingredients to make this a one of a kind burger.
- 1/4 cup mushrooms
- 2 tbsp butter
- 4 slices hard salami
- 1 grilled hamburger patty
- 1 slice provolone cheese
- 2 tbsp fennel seed
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 2 tbsp garlic seasoning powder
- Spinach leaves (as needed)
- Pizza sauce (as needed)
Combine butter and mushrooms in a bowl and microwave for 4 minutes. This will reduce the mushrooms to small bits that will be used to sprinkle on the burger mixture later. Once cooked, set aside.
Grill a hamburger patty to your liking. Once fully cooked, cut into bite-sized strips and place onto a microwave safe plate. Layer the patty with shredded pieces of salami, fennel seeds, oregano, shredded provolone and mushroom bits. Microwave for a minute, or until cheese is melted.
If you’re using the pretzel buns, place them in the microwave for 30 seconds. This will ensure that they are warm and fluffy for eating! I also recommend cutting the bun in half. Pretzel buns are pretty dense, so it all depends on how much bread you want with your burgers.
