Hearty Backyard Burgers

Hearty Backyard Burgers
By: Light & Tasty
I like to toast rye rolls or whole wheat hamburger buns on the grill for a few minutes while the burgers finish cooking. Then I top the burgers with ketchup and pickle planks right before serving.

METHOD: Grill (gas or charcoal)
TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup beer or nonalcoholic beer
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
6 rye rollsor whole wheat hamburger buns, split
6 lettuce leaves
12 tomato slices

In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties.
Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Cover and grill over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160°. Serve on rolls with lettuce and tomato slices. Yield: 6 servings.
