Italian Sausage Burgers

1 lb. Italian sausage
1/2 lb. ground turkey
1 T. fennel seed
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 medium onion, minced
1/4 C. Italian style bread crumbs
1 T. oregano
1/4 C. parmesan
6 slices provolone or mozzarella
6 rolls or buns, toasted

In a large mixing bowl, combine sausage, turkey, fennel seed, garlic, onion, bread crumbs, oregano, and parmesan. Using the side of your hand, score mixture into 6 equal portions. Shape into patties.

Add 3 patties to a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side, burgers are done when juices run clear and burger is no longer pink in the middle. Add cheese, let set for 2-3 minutes to melt the cheese.

Top with marinara.

Yield = 6 burgers

In the mood for meatballs? Add 1 egg and 2 T. milk to meat mixture. Use nice crusty french rolls and some marinara and build yourself a meatball sammie!

For an appetizer - form meat mixture into balls, slightly flatten in the middle and fry until fully cooked. Serve over small buns for Italian Burger Shooters!
