From The Kitchen of Diana Gartner
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
a sprinkling of onion powder to taste (or chopped up fresh onion if you like onion...we just don't really eat it in our house but i like to season with it a little)
14oz jar pizza sauce (or make your own...I do it both ways)
3oz sliced pepperoni, chopped
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried oregano
6 hamburger buns
1. In a large nonstick skillet, cook the beef, onion/onion powder and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain if necessary. Stir in the pizza sauce, pepperoni, and herbs. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or so.
2. Spoon beef mixture onto each bun; sprinkle with cheese; replace bun top.
And I always serve it with a side of homemade fries to complete the effect!
