Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Makes 4 sandwiches


To prepare on a indoor grill, preheat grill according to manufacturer's directions. Place patties on the grill rack. If using a covered grill, close lid. Grill until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. For a covered grill, allow 5 to 7 minutes. For an uncovered grill, allow 14 to 18 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling. Serve as above.
