Best Italian Juicy Hamburgers

Thursday, February 1, 2018
These burgers are the best just bursting with Juicy Italian flavors in them with our topping suggestions they are just over-the-top gourmet style burgers and so easy to make!


There are several cooking methods for these burgers anywhere from old-fashioned pan-fried to the modern-day air frying methods.


A thick layer of melted cheese, marinara sauce and Italian herbs are just a few reasons this is the tastiest burger on the planet!


The burger is so flavorful you can even dress it up as the American Classic burger also for all our traditional style burger fans out there or just make our Stuffed American Cheese Burger Recipe.


When I was little we had these at least once a week and I always looked forward to them.


I was never a fan of meat of any kind as a kid, then as I grew up these burgers were my favorite and I treasure the memories made with my family.


They're truly one of the best burgers on the planet, at least to me!


The homemade ciabatta bread rolls are pillow soft and make a big difference giving this Italian burger the "wow" factor!

Italian Burgers in an Italian Household



All food no matter what it was turned Italian in our household.


Grandma from Rome, Italy at 17 years old came to American and mom's family from Bari, Italy, Italianized it!


These are the perfect example of how they transformed hamburgers into a delicious Italian juicy burger, the best ever!


Of course, you will also need to make Italian Style French Fries of Dad's Home Fries, or try Grandma's favorite Salt and Vinegar Potatoes, for a side dish!

Grilling Burgers!



Summer is so much fun for many good foods and this is one to keep on your list.


Whether it's a camping trip and using your skillet, outdoor gas grill or oven-baked, these hamburgers will be flavorful and keep summer alive all year long!


Growing up where it snows and colder weather, summer foods were a treat when summer arrived.


Making Grandma's style burgers kept those warmer days in mind while they were even baking in the oven until we had the chance to cook outdoors again.

  3. Since I like the meat to extend to the edge of the bread, I'd make them a little thinner but I love the sound of the burger ingredients and the looks of the bun. I looked at the recipe for the bread and assume you use the same recipe for the rolls - one of our favorite breads but never made them.

  25. YAY!! Grill season is here and we so enjoy it. Italian burgers are great with the great seasoning included. And I agree, no wimpy bun can take a great burger. It has to be a chewy ciabatta bun that holds that delicious meat.

  34. I live in Northern Italy and we love making are own big thick burgers too and cook them on what Italians call a piastra. (It's a rectangular cast iron grill pan with ridges). Ciabatta is also our favourite choice for the rolls. Yours look and sound delicious. Love the idea of adding wine!

  38. I had to laugh about your grandmother and mother. That's the way it was at our house. There was a touch of Italian in all of our dishes. And they were excellent. Your burger is making my mouth water. There is nothing like a good juicy burger on a ciabatta roll. Looks like your mamma and nonna found the secret. Have a happy weekend.
