This Italian Meatball Burger is made with a ton of flavor, topped off with mozzarella cheese, marinara sauce and served on Garlic Texas Toast.
I love trying different types of burger recipes. I think burgers are single-handedly one of the best dishes you can recreate over and over and never get tired of them. That is probably why burgers are one of my favorite foods. I can’t get enough of them. In fact, I consider myself to be a burger expert and fearless taste tester. Yep, I don’t think there is a burger I won’t try. Wait…I’m lying. I’ve seen some recipes for beet, quinoa, and lentil burgers and as much as I respect the healthy alternatives, I think I speak for most burger lovers when I say…that’s just not right.
Creating this Italian Meatball Burger
When I created this burger I wanted the burger to say “I’m perfect for a lazy weekend meal and you need to eat me”. I didn’t want a burger on a regular bun. Ciabatta buns were considered, which would be a good alternative, but I thought to push the envelope just a bit more. That is why I decided to use Garlic Texas Toast. It adds more flavor to the burger and if you toast it just right you might get a little crispy crunch adding some texture.
Why all the meat? Using beef, lamb, and pork is the perfect Trifecta of meat that adds the perfect amount of flavor suitable for an awesome burger. I promise when you try this burger you will immediately send me a comment of how much you and your family love me. So let me go ahead and say…I love you too.
