Pizza Burgers

We got out of our Wilton class a little early tonight (again, I was the last one one...I don't know, I always used to be the first one done with tests and stuff when I was in school...I'm slacking in my old age). On the way home I was thinking - I really should make us a nice dinner tonight. Aaron's been so patient with not getting dinner on Monday nights all month, not really complaining at all. And by not getting dinner I don't mean he doesn't eat, he just eats out and then I grab whatever random thing that sounds good when I come home.

But tonight I thought he really deserves something gourmet...better than what you'd get at a 5-star restaurant. But, it also needs to be quick. I knew I wanted to blog about my cake before bedtime - which was about 30 minutes ago. The only thing I could come up with that would fit all of those requirements - pizza burgers! You know, those things they served you in the school cafeteria that you couldn't stand? Yeah - I loved them and we eat them at our house. It's been a while since we've had them, but I actually put them on the menu for one night this week. And since this is an upscale meal, you need an upscale side...like fries? No...not fries, they are too blah...it's gotta be seasoned fries! So without further adieu, I present....Pizza Burgers & Seasoned Fries!

1 lb. ground beef
1 small jar pizza sauce - your favorite kind
2 slices of cheese - I used our last slice of American and then a slice of Pepperjack
hamburger buns

Cook and drain the ground beef. Add pizza sauce and heat. Open up bun and put meat mixture on each half. Place each half on a foil lined pan, and top with a 1/2 piece of cheese. Place under broiler until the cheese gets melty, bubbly and brown.
Fries - open bag, place on foil lined sheet and bake at 450 for 20 minutes.
