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
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 egg whites
  • 2/3 cup fat-free evaporated milk
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 8 multigrain hamburger buns, split
  • 8 lettuce leaves
  • 8 tomato slices


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight patties.
  • 2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill burgers, uncovered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Serve on buns with lettuce and tomato. Yield: 8 servings.

"I didn't have hamburger so used ground turkey instead. The meat mixture was too loose to make on a grill so I made them in a grill pan on top of the stove. They turned out okay. I didn't really care for the flavor. I might try this again and use hamburger to see if they come out differently but with all of the other recipes out there for burgers, I probably won't make it again."

"The flavor is excellent, the meat tender, melts in your mouth. Will make this recipe over and over again."

"I followed this to a tee. The burgers stuck to the grill and came off in chunks. They didn't taste like a hamburger at all and had a weird consistency. They were edible but thats about it."

"Is there any way to loose some of the fat and calories?"
