BBQ Burgers

BBQ Burgers
So much healthier than going to a fast-food restaurant! (This makes enough for 4 burgers).

  • 1-1.5 lbs ground beef (80/20 ground chuck or sirloin)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce (use your favorite)
  • Dried parsley and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 tomato slices
  • 4 medium lettuce leaves
  • 8 thinly-sliced onion rings
  • 4 hamburger rolls (or bakery bread of your choice - pumpernickel is great for this)
  • Condiments of choice
  1. Lightly beat the egg. Add bread crumbs and BBQ sauce; mix well.
  2. Add ground beef and mix. Form into 4 patties.
  3. Sprinkle dried parsley and black pepper on top of each patty.
  4. Cook the burgers on a preheated grill over medium heat on both sides, until desired doneness. (Grill on aluminum foil (to keep the juices), previously sprayed with nonstick cooking spray).
  5. When serving, spread the insides of both bread slices (you can toast them for an even better flavor) with condiments of choice.
  6. Add lettuce, tomato, and onion slices on each slice. Place the burger patty on one slice, add some more condiments on the patty, and cover with the other bread slice. ENJOY!
