School Time Pizza Burgers

When I was in grade school the most popular lunch day was "Pizza Burgers". Everyone loved them. So as a cook, I spent a lot of time trying to perfect the recipe. I think I did it. More like a sloppy joe, but oh the memories!


1 pound ground beef
14 slices of american cheese, divided
1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
1/2 pound lunchmeat, anything you have around. I like a combo of ham, bologna and turkey.
2/3 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons oregano
2/3 teaspoon ground sage
6 hamburger buns


brown the ground beef. While that is cooking grind luchmeat and 6 slices of cheese together. (I use a mini food processor). When ground beef is brown, drain it and add the lunchmeat and cheese mixture to the pan. Add the remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Lay the hamburger buns out on a baking sheet. Use both halves. Top each half with the meat mixture. Top each with another slice of cheese. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes. Enjoy!
