Basil Pan Burgers

Ingredients
1
egg, slightly beaten
1/4
1/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese
2
tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
2
tablespoons snipped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
2
tablespoons ketchup
1
clove garlic, minced
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
1
pound lean ground beef
 
Nonstick cooking spray
4
whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
 
Fresh basil leaves (optional)
4
tomato slices

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl combine egg, onion, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, snipped basil, ketchup, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add ground beef; mix well. Shape meat mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  2. Lightly coat a heavy skillet with cooking spray (or use a heavy nonstick skillet).* Preheat skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add patties. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until temperature registers 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, turning meat once halfway through cooking. If meat browns too quickly, reduce heat to medium-low. Serve patties on buns with basil leaves, if desired, and tomato slices.
  3. Makes 4 sandwiches
