ALL-AMERICAN STUFFED BURGERS|
1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 1/4 tsp. salt, divided
1/4 tsp. pepper
2/3 c. shredded zucchini
1/3 c. thinly sliced mushrooms
1/4 c. chopped red pepper
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
2 Tbsp. each olive oil and
grated Parmesan cheese
4 whole wheat hamburger buns,
4 tsp. butter
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt and the pepper over ground
beef, mix lightly but thoroughly. Divide meat into 8 equal
portions and form in patties (4 inches in diameter). Cook
zucchini, mushrooms, red pepper, Italian seasoning and remain-
ing salt in oil in large frying pan over medium heat 3 to 4
minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool; stir in cheese. Place
an equal amount of vegetable mixture in center of 4 patties.
Top with remaining patties; press edges together securely to
seal. Broil patties over medium coals 5 to 6 minutes. Turn
and continue broiling 5 to 6 minutes or until done. Meanwhile
spread cut sides of each bun with an equal amount of butter and
toast on grill 1 minute. Place each patty on bottom half of
each bun; cover with bun top. Makes 4 servings.
Note: To check the temperature of the coals, cautiously
hold the palm of your hand about 4 inches above the coals.
Count the number of seconds you can hold your hand in that
position before the heat forces you to pull away. Time: 2
seconds the temperature is hot (high), 3 seconds the tempera-
ture is medium-hot, 4 seconds the temperature is medium, 5
seconds the temperature is low, 6 to 7 seconds the temperature
is very low.
