Italian-Style Ground Beef

Best results come from using a lean ground meat. Add a green salad and your favorite garlic bread and you have one delicious meal. NOTE: because of previous reviews I'm adding another 1/4 cup to the fine dry breadcrumbs.

I made this for the September 2010 Aussie/Kiwi Swap. It was fast to put together and we tried it with 3 different cheeses: Mozzarella, Provolone and Pepper Jack. I also used Chef Hannath's "Sheri's Homemade Spaghetti Sauce". Scrumptious!

This was amazing. I sliced mozzarella and covered all the beef patties. I used my spaghetti sauce. And I didn't measure for the parmesan. 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs was enough. The seasoning in the patties were perfect for me. The sauce and the cheese added to the patties made this dish so wonderful. Thanks Julie. Made for ZWT4

This was very good! I used about 1/2 c of breadcrumbs, added some italian seasoning, but otherwise kept the recipe the same. It was a very quick and easy supper! Thanks for the great recipe!
