I made Italian sausage burgers for dinner, they were outstanding. Juicy, saucy and cheesy !! And oh so yummy. I served them on homemade toasted buns with pasta salad on the side. I swayed a little bit from the recipe, I cooked them in a cast iron skillet, topped them with sliced mozzarella and simmered my burgers in the tomato sauce for a few minutes. Wonderful. Both Taylor and Tony loved them as much as I did.
