{Tasty Tuesday: Cheeseburgers with Grilled Onions}

We LOVE burgers at our house and normally save them for the weekend but this are super easy to make outdoors or indoors. Believe it or not this is a Weight Watchers recipe and only 7 PointsPlus value including the bun!

What you'll need:

  • 1 pound uncooked 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp table salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup low-fat shredded Cheddar Cheese, sharp-variety
  • 1/2 small uncooked red onion, cut into 4 thin slices
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp dried oregano, crushed
  • 4 reduced calorie hamburger rolls (We used Mrs. Baird's Grillin' Thins) 
  • 1 small fresh tomato, 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 Tbsp 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. 
Serves 4
