Servings 6


  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1 pound bulk hot Italian sausage
  • 1 large pastured egg
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs (omit Italian seasoning if using seasoned breadcrumbs)
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp. garlic paste
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 cup milk

-----Basil Mayo-----

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. basil pesto
  • 1-1/2 tsp. garlic paste


  • 6 hamburger rolls
  • 6 slices provolone cheese
  • 6 pieces leaf lettuce
  • 2 medium tomatoes (sliced)
  • 1/3-1/2 cup sliced banana pepper rings


I did my burgers on the grill, but if it's raining outside or just don't feel like firing that monster up, these can easily be cooked in a skillet or under a broiler.

  • Mix ingredients for burgers together; using wet hands, shape into six patties and chill.
  • Stir together ingredients for basil mayo and keep cold.
  • Grill burger patties over open fire or in skillet until cooked to your liking.
  • Serve patties on a toasted burger roll with lettuce, tomato, banana pepper, provolone cheese, and basil mayo.
