Melt about 1 TB of butter & about 1 TB of olive oil in pan.Put 2 cups bread crumbs into flat dish. Measure 1/3 cup of meat with a 1/3 measuring cup & flatten meat into a patty, like a hamburger. Press patty into dish with bread crumbs to coat/bread patty. Cook patty in butter & olive oil just until both sides are browned. Place patties in a flat baking dish, sprayed with cooking oil if desired. Repeat until all of meat mixture is used. Spoon some sauce onto top of each patty. Sprinkle with Parmesan and then with mozzarella. Drizzle more sauce on top of cheese. Bake at 350* until cheese is melted and bubbly, but not brown; about 15-20 minutes. Makes 6-8 patties.
Review: I used ground beef, I really wanted to do turkey but did not have it on hand. These smelled great as they where cooking! Tastes good too!
