I have a great recipe for herbed beef patties.
About 2 cups (or more if you like) grated mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese (optional)
Canned (or homemade) spaghetti sauce (2 cans)
For the patties you need:
1 lb of extra lean ground beef.
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
Pinch of thyme
1/2 tblsp your favourite flavour of wine vinegar (I usually use tarragon
Mix together thoroughly. Form into patties, coat each patty with flour
and let sit for about 5 or 6 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, beat together 3 eggs. In another bowl, have some
breadcrumbs. Dip each patty into the egg mixture, then into the
breadcrumbs, coating thoroughly.
Heat 1 tablsp of olive oil in a skillet, put each patty in the skillet
until slightly browned on both sides, then put in baking dish.
Place each patty in the baking dish, slightly overlapping each other.
Pour canned (or homemade) spaghetti sauce over all the patties, then
cover with 1/2 of mozzarella cheese.
Bake for about 25 - 35 minutes, adding the rest of the cheese halfway
