Pepperoni Pizza Burgers!!!

The Gypsy Homestead Food-Vibe of the Day:
Pepperoni Pizza Burgers!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound Italian sausage
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
8 slices mozzarella or provolone cheese
Pepperoni Slices
8 Tablespoons jarred marinara sauce
Grated parmesan cheese
4 whole Kaiser rolls (or good hamburger buns) (leave out if Low Carb, use Mushrooms instead )
First combine the ground beef, Italian sausage, and Italian seasoning in a large bowl.
Knead it together and form it into four very large thick patties. I love that you can see the Italian sausage intermingled with the beef. That means this is going to be one great tasting burger as is. But then we’re going to add pepperoni, cheese & marinara! Flavor overload, in a good way.
Heat a cast iron pan over medium-high heat and cook the burgers on one side for several minutes (about 5) until completely browned, then flip-flip-flip the burgers.
Now for the fun part: Lay 2 slices of the cheese of your choice onto each patty and then top with several slices of pepperoni.
Let the burgers cook until they’re done all the way through and the cheese is nice and melted (about 3-5 minutes). While you’re waiting on the burgers to finish cooking, split the buns and spread with marinara sauce. Also, sprinkle with parmesan cheese if you have some.
Place the hamburger patties on the marinara sauced buns and there you have it. A pepperoni pizza burger.
