Grilled Beef Burgers Recipe

Grilled Beef Burgers Recipe

I rely on a few common ingredients to put a new twist on a backyard barbecue staple. To make handling the patties even easier, let them firm up in the freezer a bit before grilling. —Lynda Ferguson of Sarnia, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 2 egg whites
