Cheeseburger Recipe

WebMD Recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 pound
    very lean ground beef, or fresh ground sirloin
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    garlic salt
  • 4 slices
    reduced-fat cheese
  • whole-wheat hamburger buns
  •  
    lettuce leaves, optional
  •  
    mustard, optional
  •  
    ketchup, optional
  •  
    barbecue sauce, optional
  •  
    canola cooking spray
  •  
    freshly ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Divide the beef into 4 equal portions. Use a patty press (or your hands) to make four burgers. Sprinkle them with the pepper and garlic salt.
  2. Pan-fry, broil, or grill the burgers, using canola cooking spray to keep them from sticking to the pan or grill. When the burgers are almost cooked through, place the cheese slices on top and finish cooking (30 to 60 seconds). Remove the burgers to the serving plate. If desired, cover the plate with foil to keep burgers warm and moist.
  3. Dress your burger on the bun with the lettuce, sliced tomato and onion, mustard, barbecue sauce, and ketchup as desired.
