We love pizza around our house

And I really love a burger

And summer squash

I love this easy meal!

For the Burgers:

1 pound ground beef

1 small onion, finely diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup (lightly packed) fresh basil, chopped

1 teaspoon dried oregano

Mix and form into patties

Grill or cook in a saute pan

Top with fresh mozzarella

Serve on a bun with lettuce, spinach & spoon pizza sauce over top of the burger

For the fries:

Slice summer squash (yellow or zucchini) into rounds

Scramble 1 egg & mix together Italian seasoned breadcrumbs with 1 teaspoon each dried basil, oregano & garlic

Bread squash rounds and place on a greased baking sheet

Bake at 400˚ for 20 minutes or until golden brown, flipping after 10 minutes

Serve with marinara (or pizza sauce) for dipping!

Ren approved!

** Excuse the picture quality – the good camera was on the fritz!
