From Mario Batali--Big American Cookbook: 250 Favorite Recipes from Across the USA

Ingredients

8 ounces ground beef
8 ounces hot Italian sausage, removed from casings
1 cup ricotta, at room temperature
4 ounces Gouda cheese, shredded
1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano
4 slices good rye bread
 

Preparation

Preheat the oven’s broiler.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the beef and sausage together and use a potato masher to break up the chunks to make a crumbly, browned mixture. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the cheeses and oregano. Divide the mixture evenly among the slices of bread, place on a baking sheet, and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, until the cheese starts to bubble and turn golden brown.

Cut each piece of bread in half on the diagonal and serve immediately.
