Pizza Burgers, Easy Kids’ Food that Feeds an Army
I asked my daughter Erin for suggestions for the blog and she asked me to include my Pizza Burger recipe. This recipe was a favorite of mine when I was a kid. (In fact, every child I know—except Andrew, who is vegetarian—loves Pizza Burgers.)
My mother made Pizza Burgers and kept a batch in the freezer so we could just scoop out some of the topping, put it on a hamburger bun or an English Muffin and broil it for lunch, supper or anytime we wanted. Start to finish, just 25 minutes.
Try Pizza Burger Portobellos
I made some of these Pizza Burgers over the weekend. But instead of putting them on buns or English Muffins, I used portobello caps. What a delight! I filled the caps with the meat mixture and baked them at 350F degrees for 20-25 minutes. They were really good! But if you are dairy intolerant, skip this recipe.
Recently, I made Pizza Burgers and instead of using the bun or English muffin as the base, I used a large Portobello Mushroom cap. OMG! It was delicious. I baked it at 350F degrees for about 20 minutes.
The recipe contains a “secret” ingredient you’ll never believe. What do you think it is?
