  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1/2 lb. mild bulk Italian sausage
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 tsp. finely chopped garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground or coarse ground pepper
  • 6 (1-oz.) slices LAND O LAKES® Deli Provolone Cheese
  • 1 (16-oz.) loaf ciabatta bread, sliced in half horizontally, cut into 6 equal pieces*
  • 3 Tbsp. LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
  • Roasted red pepper strips, if desired
  • Fresh basil leaves, if desired


Heat gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Combine ground beef, sausage, onion, garlic and pepper in large bowl; mix lightly. Shape into 6 (1/2 inch thick) patties.

Place patties onto grill. Grill, turning once, until internal temperature reaches at least 160°F. or until meat is no longer pink in center (10 to 12 minutes). Top each patty with slice of Land O' Lakes® Deli Provolone Cheese during last minute of grilling.

Meanwhile, brush cut-sides of bread with butter. Place onto grill, buttered-side down. Grill until toasted.

To serve, place burgers onto 6 toasted bread bottom pieces. Top each with roasted red pepper strips and basil, if desired. Top with remaining toasted bread pieces.
