Years ago a friend use to make these whenever my boyfriend (now DH for 34 years) would be invited to dinner. Very inexpensive and the kids loved them growing up (without the tomato). I always served them with tomato soup. Quick and easy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Split hamburger buns and toast in oven till lightly brown.
  2. Fry ground beef, till no longer pink, drain.
  3. Add tomato sauce, parmesan cheese and salt/pepper. Mix well.
  4. Divide meat mixture evenly among buns, top each with a tomato slice and a cheese slice.
  5. Broil till cheese is melted. Watch closely can burn quickly.
  6. Enjoy!

I used ground chuck and the Parmesan/romano cheese mixture. This was good but it was a little bland on the seasonings side as is. I love the concept though. I will make this again but add a little garlic powder or chopped onions to the meat mixture. Made for Potluck 09'

This was so simple and very quick to make..not to mention budget friendly. I read the other reviews and took some advice from them. I added some garlic,onion and italian seasoning with a few chilli flakes to my mixture,along with a generous dash of salt and pepper seasoning.This made for a tasty and filling meal.

Quick, simple and delicious. The only adjustment I made was I added a dash Italian seasoning,this is great for a weekday quick dinner, when you do not feel like cooking for a long time. There ready in no time. Great recipe !
