For lighter grilling try this spicy burger which freezes well. This came from Cooking Light. I always have leftover Italian turkey sausage after making a batch of these for my freezer, so I use the leftover sausage to make Grilled Italian Sausage Veggies in Foil.

Directions

  1. Prepare grill.
  2. Remove casings from sausage. Combine sausage, oregano, basil, salt, fennel seeds, and ground sirloin. Divide beef mixture into 6 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2 inch patty.
  3. Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes. Turn patties over; grill 2 minutes. Divide fresh mozzarella cheese evenly over patties, and grill an additional 5 minutes or until a thermometer registers 165 degrees. Remove from grill; let stand 5 minutes.
  4. Place rolls, cut side down on grill rack; grill 1 minute or until toasted. Place 1 patty on bottom half, top with 2 tablespoons of sauce, and top with other half of roll.
  5. Raw burgers freeze well.
