Grilled Italian Meatball Burgers

1 egg, slightly beaten
1/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 ½ pounds ground beef
½ pound Italian sausage
Sliced mozzarella cheese
8 hamburger buns
1 cup prepared spaghetti sauce, warmed

1. In a large bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Crumble ground beef and sausage over the mixture and mix well. Shape into 8 burgers.
2. Coat the grill rack and heat to medium heat. Grill burgers covered for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees and juices run clear.
3. Cover burgers with cheese slices. As soon as the cheese is melted, remove from grill and keep warm.
4. Grill buns for 1-2 minutes or until toasted. Remove from grill and spoon some spaghetti sauce on each bun. Top with hamburger patty.
