Simple Lasagna Burgers

"Leftover Italian sausage and ricotta cheese combined with a craving for a juicy burger was the inspiration for this quick creation. For a little extra kick, use hot Italian sausage and add your favorite hot sauce to taste while mixing together the meats."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix the ground beef Italian sausage, red pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning. Form the mixture into 12 thin, wide patties. Place about 2 ounces of ricotta cheese in the middle of 6 patties. Place the remaining 6 patties over the ricotta topped patties, press down, and pinch the edges to seal the cheese in the center.
  3. Cook on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 8 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  4. Place the cooked burgers on buns, then top with spaghetti sauce, Parmesan cheese, and spinach leaves.

Really good burger...but tasted like a pizza burger not lasagana.the ricotta seemed to diappear

Interesting concept but I didn't like the ricotta cheese. I think mozzarella cheese would be better.

This recipe was meh at it's best. Didn't change a thing made it exactly as written. Will NOT be making this again.

I love this recipe, it is defiantly one of my husband's favorites! I usually saute the spinach with a little garlic and olive oil. So tasty!
