Italian Salami Cheeseburger

Yay for cheeseburgers. I love cheeseburgers on the grill. A good, plain cheeseburger never gets old. But, sometimes it is nice to switch it up a bit. I thought an Italian-style burger would be good when I saw some salami at Krause’s that caught my eye. A warm tomato topping and I’d be set!


A better version of a bacon cheeseburger!


Italian Hamburger

  • 1 lb. ground burger
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. chili flakes
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 slices of cheese – provolone would be wonderful
  • 4 slices of salami for topping


Combine all items into the burger, except for salami and cheese. Form into 4 patties. I like to spread the meat out, top it with the other ingredients and quickly form patties. Don’t work the meat too much.

Grill until done and top with cheese at the end to get it nice and melted. Grill salami on the side. The salami will only need a short about of time, just to get some color on it basically.


Italian Tomato topping

  • 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 tsp. chili flakes
  • 1/2 Tbsp. Worcestershire
  • 1 tsp. dried Italian mix herbs
  • salt and pepper

While the burgers are grilling, put your olive oil in a small pot. Put all other ingredients in and simmer until the tomatoes start breaking apart.


Salami is kind of expensive! But this was perfect. Our grocery store sells it sliced and in packages. Salami has a strong taste, so a little goes a long way. This was 5 slices here – perfect!


When the burgers are almost done, top with cheese and the grilled salami.


Top your salami burger with the tomato mixture and serve on an iceberg bed.


The warm burger and tomatoes taste so good on the cold salad. No need for ketchup!


This burger is packed with flavors. Garlic and onions make almost everything better. Enjoy!
