3 lbs. lean ground beef
3/4 lb. italizn ground sausage (I use 1/2 mild and 1/2hot)
3/4 C dried, italian-flavored bread crumbs
3/4 C grated parmesan cheese
3 eggs, slightly beatan
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp garlic powder
2 T sweet basil
2 T fennel seeds

For into small, flat patties. For small patties, broil on top rack for 2 minutes, then flip and broil on other side for an additional 2 minutes. Will not be completely cooked. If making regular, hamburger-size patties, you will need to broil a couple minutes longer.

1-2 jars of your favorite spaghetti sauce. (I used the meat or cheese flavored sauce and whatever is on sale.)
Add to sauce:
1 T sugar (or more)
1 T sweet basil
Hormel dried pepperoni slices, cutting each slice into 4 strips (I use the low fat turkey pepperoni)
Flaked red pepper, to taste.
Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add broiled patties and simmer abut another 5-10 minutes.

If preparing in advance, cool and then put into zip-lock freezer bags.
