With warmer weather on the horizon, it's time to get ready for burger season! Pep up that boring burger with this easy to make, Italian Pepperoni Burger! It's big on flavor!


  • 2 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 lb. Italian sausage
  • 6 Provolone cheese
  • 6 ciabatta buns
  • Butter
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 36 Hormel pepperoni slices


  1. Preheat a gas grill over high heat or a charcoal grill until it glows bright orange and ashes over.
  2. In a large bowl combine the ground beef and Italian sausage. Shape the mixture into six patties.
  3. Grill the burgers until browned and slightly charred on the first side (about 3-4 minutes). Flip the burgers over and continue to cook until desired doneness - about 4 minutes for medium rare, longer for a more done burger.
  4. Meanwhile, butter the cut sides of the ciabatta rolls and toast on grill. Keep an eye on them - it won't take long.
  5. To assemble the burger, spoon about 2-3 tbsp. of the spaghetti sauce onto the cut part of the bottom portion of the ciabatta rolls. Place one of the cooked burger patties on top. Add a slice of cheese. Top each burger with six slices of pepperoni. Replace the top portion of the bun. Serve!
