8 oz sweet or spicy Italian sausage
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
1/2 tsp fennel seeds, crushed
1 lb ground sirloin
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Remove sausage from casing and combine with basil, oregano, fennel seeds, salt, garlic, and sirloin. Divide into 6 portions and shape into 1/2" thick patties.
Grill 6 minutes then flip. Grill 2 minutes, place cheese on top and grill 6 minutes more (to 160 degree F temp). Remove and let stand for 5 minutes.
Lightly grill the rolls if you choose. Place 1 basil leaf and burger on each roll, top with Sunday Sauce.
