Grilled Everything Burger
Source: Fresh Off The Grid
- 1 larger tomato
- ½ head romaine, cut lengthwise
- 1 red onion
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 lb 80% lean ground beef
- 4 slices cheddar cheese
- 4 hamburger buns
Prepare the grill to medium heat.
Slice the tomato and onion into ½ inch thick rounds. Brush the tomatoes, onions, and the cut side of the romaine with oil and season with salt. Form the ground beef into 4 patties, creating a small indent in the middle (this will help the patties cook evenly), then season generously with salt.
Place the burger patties on the grill. Grill for about 5 minutes, then flip, top with cheese, and grill the other side for 2-3 minutes, or until the temperature reaches 145F for medium.
While the burgers are cooking, place the tomatoes, onions, romaine, and buns on the grill. Flip occasionally until the vegetables are slightly soft and charred and the buns are toasted. Remove & set aside.
Assemble the burgers by layering a few leaves of romaine, a burger patty with cheese, a slice of tomato and slice of onion between two buns. (Ketchup, mayo, and mustard are optional – by using 80% lean ground beef, this burger is plenty juicy on it’s own!)
