Total Time: 30minutes
1poundextra lean ground beef
1/4cupgrated parmesan cheese
Knead together the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, grated parmesan, milk and seasonings. Form into 4 burger patties.
Heat a cast iron skillet medium/hot and melt the butter. Place the burgers on the skillet so they sear and create a crust. After about 3-4 minutes, flip the burger to create the crust on the other side. Cook the burger a little bit rarer than your preference as they will cook some more in the oven.
Place on a baking sheet.
Put 1 1/2 tablespoons of pizza sauce on each burger. Sprinkle grated mozzarella on top of the pizza sauce. Place 6 pepperoni slices on each burger.
Broil the burgers in a 450F oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melting and the pepperoni is crisping.
Serve on a toasted bun.
Cook on the grill!If desired, the burgers can also be cooked on the grill. Then just before they are done, spread the pizza sauce on each burger. Pack some grated cheese on top of each patty and top with the sliced pepperoni. Close the lid and let the cheese melt.
