Ingredients

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 4 tablespoons barbecue sauce, divided
  • 4 slices white cheddar, pepper Jack, smoked Gouda or provolone cheese
  • 4 whole wheat hambruger buns or pretzel rolls, split, toasted
  • lettuce leaves, tomato slices and red onion slices

Directions

Combine Ground Beef, onion and 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. About 1 minute before burgers are done, brush with remaining 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce and top with cheese.

Line bottom half of each bun with lettuce leaves, tomato and red onion slices, as desired; top with burger. Close sandwiches.

Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
