Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning blend
  • 4 seeded or whole wheat hamburger buns, split
  • 4 slices lowfat cheese, such as Cheddar or American
Toppings:
  • Lettuce leaves, tomato slices (optional)

Cooking:

  1. Place oats in foodsafe plastic bag. Seal bag securely, squeezing out excess air. Roll over bag with rolling pin to crush oats to a fine consistency.

  2. Combine Ground Beef, oats, and steak seasoning blend in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch patties.

  3. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
  4. Line bottom of each bun with lettuce and tomato, if desired; top with burger and cheese slice. Close sandwiches.
