Bet you haven't ever thought about topping a classic burger with a Missouri staple — toasted ravioli! It's delicious cheesy goodness.

This recipe is courtesy of Beef - It's What's For Dinner.

Notes

Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

Cook's Tip: You may substitute your favorite marinara sauce, if desired.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound ground beef
  • 4 frozen cheese ravioli
  • 4 Tablespoons marinara sauce (comes with ravioli)
  • 1/4 Cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 Teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 4 hamburger buns, split

Directions

Prepare toasted ravioli and sauce per package directions.

Combine ricotta cheese and Italian seasoning.  Add ground beef, mixing lightly but thoroughly.  Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

Place burger on bottom half of each bun.  Evenly top burgers with marinara sauce and ravioli.  Close sandwiches.
