Whether you’re firing up the grill or heating up your broiler, these Italian-inspired cheeseburgers will make a great meal for the whole crew. You’ll enjoy flavors from seasoned beef patties, giardiniera, your favorite tangy marinara sauce and a layer of melted Sargento® Sliced Provolone Cheese tucked between each kaiser roll.

  • 1-1/3 lbs. ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
