Burger Layer "Cake"

This "cake" really seems to be two big Salisbury type steaks sandwiched together, and little different way to use hamburger.
It is from a Jan. 1976 Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce newspaper ad. The text warns against accepting any imitation sauce. Good cooks "know imitations just can't stand up to its unique, original flavor."
Burger Layer "Cake"
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons catsup
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
6 teaspoons Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, divided
2 pounds ground lean beef
2 tablespoons oil
1-1/2 cups sliced onions
1 cup diced green pepper
1 can (4 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained
1 tomato, diced
Combine first 3 ingredients, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt and 5 teaspoons Lea & Perrins. Add meat; mix lightly. Divide mixture in half. Shape each half into 8-inch circle. Place on lightly greased jelly-roll pan. Bake in preheated 450 degree oven 10 minutes. Heat oil in a skillet. Add onion, green pepper and mushrooms; saute 5 minutes. Add tomato, 1 teaspoon Lea & Perrins and 1/2 teaspoon salt; cook 2 minutes longer. Sandwich half of the vegetables between meat rounds. Top with remaining vegetables. Serve in wedges. Serves 6.

Yikes! Maybe the word "cake" with hamburger is what makes me nervous about this one!

I kind of wonder how the two layers would really stay together!

I think this would make a great "burger" - a meat round on a hamburg bun, topped with the veggie mixture, then the other bun.

Oh my stars, a burger cake!

What does one serve for dessert after this?
