From the Test KitchenFor tabletop grill:
  • Preheat grill according to manufacturers directions. Add onions, if using, to grill. If using a covered grill, close lid. Grill until onions are lightly browned. For covered grill, allow 5 to 7 minutes. (For open grill, allow about 10 minutes.) Remove onions. Add patties to grill. If using a covered grill, close lid. Grill until meat is done (160 degrees F). For a covered grill, allow 4 to 6 minutes. (For open grill, allow about 7 to 8 minutes per side.) Continue as directed in Step 4 above.
*Test kitchen tip:
  • Rinse arugula thoroughly, it can be gritty. Dry in a salad spinner or pat dry with paper towels before laying on burgers.
