Sink your teeth into one of these babies for total burger satisfaction. Try different kinds of cheese and tomatoes for other fantastic combinations.*


  1 pound(s) uncooked 93% lean ground beef
  1 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced
  1/4 tsp table salt
  1/8 tsp black pepper
  1/4 cup(s) low-fat shredded Cheddar cheese, sharp-variety
  1/2 small uncooked red onion(s), cut into 4 thin slices
  1/2 tsp olive oil
  1/8 tsp dried oregano, crushed
  4 item(s) reduced-calorie hamburger roll(s)
  1 small fresh tomato(es), cut into 8 thin slices


  • Preheat grill to medium-hot heat.**
  • In a medium bowl, gently combine beef, garlic, salt and pepper; form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Place on grill and cook 4 to 5 minutes on one side; flip and continue cooking until desired degree of doneness, about 3 to 4 minutes more. Sprinkle each burger with 1 tablespoon of cheese; cook until cheese melts, about 1 minute.
  • Meanwhile, brush both sides of onion with oil. Grill until bottom is lightly browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip onion and sprinkle with oregano; grill for 2 to 3 minutes more.
  • Lightly toast open-faced buns on grill. Place burgers on buns and top each with onion and tomato slices. Yields 1 cheeseburger per serving.

    **You can also make this recipe in a stovetop grill pan. Cooking time may vary.

    The secret to a juicy, lean burger is to avoid pressing down on the patty while it’s cooking so it retains its juices.
