Grilled Short-Order Burgers
- 4 garlic cloves, pressed
- 1 tsp (5 mL) each salt and black pepper
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) plain bread crumbs
- 1 1/4 lb (575 g) 85% lean ground beef or 93% lean ground turkey
- 1 large onion
- 8 small hamburger buns (3-in./7.5-cm each), split
- 8 oz (250 g) sliced white mushrooms
- 8 slices white cheddar or Swiss cheese
Combine pressed garlic, salt, pepper, egg and bread crumbs in medium mixing bowl. Mix well to form a paste. Add meat; mix until incorporated.
Using a heaping ¼ cup (50 mL), divide meat mixture evenly into eight (4-in./10-cm) patties. Heat Double Burner Grill over medium heat 3-5 minutes or until hot. Spray with oil. As pan heats, thinly slice onion.
Place half of the buns, cut-side down into pan and grill 30-60 seconds or until lightly toasted. Repeat with remaining buns; set aside.
Add onions and mushrooms to pan and spray with additional oil. Cook 5-7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Move vegetables to center of pan.
Place all eight patties in pan, arranging four on either side of vegetables. Cook 2-3 minutes or until grill marks appear.
Turn patties over. Top with vegetables and cheese. Cook 2-3 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C). Place burgers on buns.
