Cheese Stuffed Lasagna Burger Recipe


  • 2.25 pounds ground beef round (85% lean)
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more for spicier burgers)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 teaspoons whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 6 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 loaf garlic bread (cooked according to package directions)


  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground round and spices. Mix well.
  2. Divide the seasoned meat into 12 equal size pieces.
  3. Flatten each piece into a thin disc, about 4-5 inches in diameter.
  4. Spread a teaspoon of ricotta cheese on the center of 6 patties (1 teaspoon for each patty). Be careful not to go to edges. Keep the ricotta just in the center.
  5. Break each slice of provolone cheese into fourths.
  6. Place 3-4 pieces of provolone cheese on top of the ricotta cheese.
  7. Take the remaining flattened patties and press each on top of the cheese-topped patties. Press the edges of the patties together to seal well so the cheese does not escape during cooking.
  8. Heat a gas grill to 400 degrees.
  9. Place the patties on the grill and cover the grill. Grill for 8-10 minutes, turning once or twice as needed, until the patties reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
  10. To serve the sandwiches, place a cooked patty on a piece of garlic bread. Top with sauce and a few leaves of spinach. Top with another piece of garlic toast.
  11. Serve immediately.
