  2. In a large nonstick skillet cook patties over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into sides of patties registers 160 degrees F,* turning once.
  3. Line cut sides of bun halves with spinach. Top with burgers, tomato slices, and Cucumber Sauce. If desired, garnish with red onion.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A beef patty cooked to 160 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.

Cucumber Sauce

Ingredients

3
tablespoons cucumber, seeded and chopped
2
tablespoons light sour cream
1
clove garlic, minced
1/2
teaspoon snipped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4
teaspoon snipped fresh mint
1/8
teaspoon sea salt

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine cucumber, sour cream, garlic, parsley, mint, and sea salt. Makes about 1/4 cup.
