Italian food plus cheesy burgers plus French bread. Amen.
This is definitely going to freak you out. In a happy-happy-joy-joy way. A giddy pants way. A write-home-about-it way.
It's an Italian-style seasoned turkey burger, all grilled or seared or whatever you want to do, smothered in mozzarella cheese, and then smothered again in tomato sauce. IN BETWEEN TWO LASAGNA NOODLES. The curly kind. The old-school kind. And then get this; it's all sandwiched between some straight-from-the-oven baked French bread. Am I kidding? No, I'm not.
I didn't come up with this genius creation, sad to say. But when my eyes fell upon Nick's version on Dude Foods, I went into a happy coma.
Here we go!
First of all, combine some ground turkey, parsley, garlic, Italian seasoning and a little salt and pepper. Just mix mix mix.
And then you'll form two loaf patty things. Let them sit in the fridge for a long as you can! Two hours is good. It will just help all the flavors fall in lurve.
Take a Pillsbury French bread dough loaf and cut it in half! And yes, I realize my halves are slightly different sizes.
Then grab some curly lasagna noodles and bawl 'em up. (AKA: Cook them.)
Then a lot happens; it's boring to show you. BUT, what you'll do is bake that bread, sear the meat, melt the cheese on it, heat some Muir Glen tomato sauce and put it all together! Layer layer layer. A freaking lasagna burger. I mean what.
My work here is done.
