INGREDIENTS:  1-1/2 pounds ground beef ~ 1/4 cup chopped onion ~ 1 can (398ml) pizza sauce ~ 1 can (298ml) mushroom stems and pieces, drained ~ 1 tablespoon sugar ~ 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano ~ 6 hamburger buns, split and toasted ~ 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

To Create: In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink, 3-5 minutes, breaking into crumbles. Drain. Stir in the pizza sauce, mushrooms, sugar and oregano; mix well. Spoon onto buns; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Place on ungreased baking sheets. Broil 4 in. from the heat until cheese is melted, 2 minutes.

To freeze for quick lunches later, place the split and toasted buns on a baking sheet. Spoon the meat mixture onto buns; freeze for 1 hour. Transfer to freezer-safe airtight containers.

To use frozen burgers: Thaw completely in the refrigerator. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil 4 in. from the heat until heated through and cheese is melted, 2 minutes.
