For a super supper, try these well-seasoned burgers that take minutes to prepare but leave the impression that I've spent time cooking," says Ronda Lawson of Dublin, California.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Hot cooked spaghetti, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Crumble beef and sprinkle 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese over mixture; mix well. Shape into two patties.
  2. In a large skillet, cook patties for 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Combine the tomato sauce and Italian seasoning; pour over patties. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Serve patties and sauce over spaghetti if desired.
