Oven Pizza Burgers
Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
This takes the idea of the pizza bagel in a whole new direction! Oven Pizza Burgers replace the bagel with a hamburger bun and then bring in the juicy, savory hamburger just to add to the deliciousness. But Oven Pizza Burgers don't skimp out on the pizza, bringing in the melty cheese and sweet tomato sauce for literally the best of both worlds. Oven Pizza Burgers can be eaten as an indulgent meal on their own or as a hearty snack, but either way, they will simply wow you!
Place an oven rack about 6-8 inches from the broiler. Preheat the broiler.
In a large skillet, cook and crumble the beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink, about 6-8 minutes.
Sprinkle the meat mixture with cornstarch, stirring until it is blended.
Stir in the tomatoes, oregano, salt, and onion salt.
Cook, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
Add six cheese slices into the meat mixture, cooking and stirring until the cheese is melted and blended.
Place the hamburger buns cut side up on an ungreased baking sheet.
Spoon about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture onto each bun half.
Cut the remaining cheese slices in half diagonally. Place each of the halved cheese slices over the meat on the buns.
Broil the buns until the cheese is melted, for about 3-4 minutes.
