4 servings

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound Italian sausage (a little more is fine!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 12 slices provolone
  • 16 slices pepperoni
  • Thinly sliced red onion, for topping
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced thick
  • Sliced black olives, for topping

  • Butter, for toasting
  • Grated Parmesan (store bought)
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Combine the ground beef, Italian sausage and Italian seasoning in a bowl. Knead the mixture together and form it into four large/thick patties.

  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the burgers on one side for several minutes, then turn the burgers. Lay 2 slices of provolone on each patty, followed by 4 slices of pepperoni. Add a couple of thin slices of red onion, a slice of green bell pepper and a pile of black olives. Spoon a little marinara sauce on top, then lay another slice of cheese on top of all the fillings.

  • Place the lid on the skillet and allow the burgers to cook all the way through while the cheese melts and the pepperoni warms.

  • Split the rolls and toast them in butter in a skillet until nice and golden and crisp. Spread both halves with more marinara sauce and sprinkle the sauce with Parmesan.

  • Lay the patties on the bottom buns, then top with the top buns. Serve immediately; hearty appetites are recommended!
