Low Carb Italian Burgers Supreme Recipe

Very tasty recipe for Italian Burgers.. just skip the bun since thats where all the carbs are anyway.

- 3lbs ground beef ($2.95 for this entire 5lb roll)
- 1pound Jimmy Dean type sausage or Italian sausage( $1.49 markdown)
- 1/4 cup Ragu "no sugar added" pasta sauce ($1.25 price match)
- red bell pepper, thinly sliced (.33 cents price match)
- green bell pepper, thinly sliced (.33cents price match)
- onion, thinly sliced (.33 cents a pound price match)
- slices of provolone or mozzarella cheese
1. Combine the ground beef, sausage, and the 1/4 cup pasta sauce in bowl.  Slice up the peppers and onion and put into seperate bowl.
2. Mrs. Lexus distracting me.
3. Form the meat into patties and put on George Foreman grill.. makes about 6 man size patties. at same time in wok with some olive oil, stir fry the vegetables
4. When burgers are done, put a slice of the cheese on top to melt.. for about 60seconds.. DO NOT CLOSE LID.
5. Remove burgers and put on plate, add 1-2 tablespoon of additional pasta sauce on top. then add some of the vegetables.
6. Serve.. if you have some shredded cheese you can put some of that on top also to pimp it out.
this is going to taste the best if you eat right after cooking. the additional burgers i will be eating for lunch or dinner as regular burgers without the veggies.  Carbs will be under 5grams per patty depending on what type of cheese and pasta sauce you get. Too easy
