Lean grilled beef burgers are served on whole wheat buns with onion slices, lettuce, tomato, and creamy ranch dressing.


  • 1 pound ground beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • ¼ cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 medium red onion, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided
  • 4 whole-wheat buns, split and toasted
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Tomato slices

  2. Place patties and onion slices on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill patties, 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 degrees F, turning occasionally. Grill onions, 11 to 13 minutes or until tender, brushing with remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil and turning occasionally.
