1 pound lean ground beef

8 ounces hot or sweet Italian sausage, casings removed

1 clove garlic, grated

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 red onion, sliced 1/2 inch thick

2 bell peppers (1 red, 1 yellow), cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing

4 slices provolone cheese

4 sesame potato hamburger buns, split

4 large basil leaves, torn

Warmed marinara sauce, for topping

Potato chips, for serving


  1. Combine the ground beef, sausage, garlic, oregano, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl; mix with your hands until just combined. Form into four 3/4-inch-thick patties; set aside.
  2. Preheat a grill pan or grill over medium heat. Toss the onion and bell peppers with the olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a bowl. Grill the vegetables, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and tender, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  3. Brush the grill pan with olive oil. Add the burgers and cook until browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side, topping with the cheese and covering during the last 2 minutes.
  4. Serve the burgers on the buns and top with the onion-pepper mixture, basil and marinara sauce. Serve with chips.
