Italian Hamburgers

Italian Hamburgers


  • 1½lb Ground Beef
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 Large Loaf of Italian Bread
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 tub Butter or Margarine
  • Garlic Salt (to taste)
  • 8 Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 4 Slices Mozzarella Cheese


Cut bread long ways and spread Butter or Margarine liberally over the Italian Bread. Sprinkle garlic salt lightly over bread and lay on cookie sheet. Set oven on (350 degrees) and bake until butter melts into bread. Turn oven to broil and toast lightly. Cut bread cross-ways for 4 hamburgers.
Put ground beef in bowl and add Worcestershire Sauce, Salt and Pepper. Lightly toss and shape into four patties.
Grill on medium heat (350 degrees) turning no more than twice per side a side. Cook until desired doneness. Just before serving add sliced cheese.
Place burger on buns and add sliced tomato. Next put 1-2 basil leaves per burger. Optionally, you can add a dill pickle slice to burger.
Optional way to cook burgers if it’s raining. Use large black iron skillet and cook on stove top. You could put the garlic cheese grits with this recipe, but I usually eat just the hamburger since I’m already getting carb's with the bread.
