Italian Hamburger

What is with just eating a plain ole hamburger day after day...why not spice it up a bit. With this recipe, you can actually visit a large number of countries around the world. Tonight we met up with Italy, but tomorrow it could be Thai, or the next day it could be Greek...you pick. Mix it up, enjoy!!

2 lbs of hamburger
3 tbsp fresh oregano
2 tbsp fresh thyme
3/4 cup of sundried tomato pesto (recipe is on my blog)
4 tbsp parmesan cheese
3 tbsp ketchup

Mix together all ingredients. Form into patties and grill. Dave spiced his up. He actually broke his hamburgers into two and stuffed them with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. Then he took one patty and placed the pepperonie and mozzarella on it and then took another patty and laid it on top.

Spice it up a bit...Go to Thailand and add chopped scallions, peanut sauce, crushed red pepper flakes and a touch of soy sauce. Or go to Greece, add oregano, feta cheese and top with tsatsiki sauce. Or go to China and mix chopped scallions, chopped ginger, soy sauce and hoisin sauce. There are a number of possibilities or combinations you could try!!
