Italian Roman Burger

15 Min
20 Min

Here in Ohio, concentrated in the Cleveland Area we have Mr. Hero Subs & Sandwich Chains. They're most infamous burger is the Roman Burger. Of course if you add waffle fries, cheese and add a bigger sandwich if you're super hungry, it could cost you about 15 dollars for a meal. It's such a simple burger that many local pubs are making the burger and you can make it at home too. This is far as I heard is the Cleveland born burger.


crusty italian hoagie rolls
1 lb
ground beef
18 slice
italian hard salami
12 slice
white american cheese or provolone
italian dressing
shredded lettuce (optiona)
sliced onions
sliced tomatoes

Directions Step-By-Step

Butter your hoagie rolls and pan toast them until lightly toasted. Lay a thin layer or mayo on the rolls. Place shredded lettuce, onion and tomatoes onto one side of hoagie rolls. Drizzle Italian Dressing over veggies.
Place salami slices in a skillet and pan fry them until they begin to bubble up. Remove them and set aside.
Shape 12 thin burger patties out of the 1 pound of burger meat and cook in a skillet until browned. Place a slice of White american cheese or provolone on burgers and place 2 patties onto veggie side of hoagie rolls. Place salami on top and top of hoagie bun.
You just made a Italian Roman Burger, Go and Enjoy! Note: I like these burgers with just tomatoes and onions, so the veggies are optional. If not using veggies, drizzle Italian dressing lightly over mayo.

Just what I was looking for! I have leftover cheeseburgers in the freezer, and was thinking about what I could make with them, and a yummy memory Mr. Hero's Romanburger popped into my head from when we lived in Cleveland many years ago. My husband will be pleasantly surprised by these! I think I might even make them on our anniversary of our first date, which is coming up in a couple of weeks. Thank you for the recipe, Annamaria! :)

Since I started introducing these here in SC last summer they have really caught on. The owner of the Country Club liked them so much we added them to our newest revision of the menu. We call it the "Double Eagle"

I have been looking for a Romanburger recipe for years, I also live in Ohio and Mr. Heros was my favorite place to eat. I moved to Fremont and there is not a Mr. Hero anywhere close to here, the closest one is and hour away. I will be making this for my husband and myself for supper tomorrow. I can not wait to try this recipe
