We had family in town and my husbands asked me to make my meatball burgers that apparently I had made for his dad once before at our old house (well over a year ago…way too long ago for this looney bin to remember!) So I was thinking he meant these meatball subs …so as a good wife I bought all of the stuff needed plus stuff for regular burgers in case no one wanted my crazy creations. However, before I started making it Lover Boy and I came to the realization that we were talking about two totally different meals. So off to the store I went again to buy the right ingredients. After my 49 trips to the grocery store (plus 1 for Lover Boy because we were out of propane) they were finally made! And yummmmmmy were they!

Little Finch will show you how to make them!… 🙂

Grill The Burgers

Put ’em on the grill and cook until cooked all of the way through…add provolone cheese folded in quarters for the last 2 minutes (must have gotten distracted and forgot the picture!)
