Cherry Burgers















Trans-fat Free


½ each sweet vidalia onions
cut into thin rounds
12 ounces ground beef, lean
½ cup cherries, dried
finely chopped
½ cup bread crumbs, whole wheat
coarse dry
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
4 each english muffins
whole wheat, split
4 each lettuce leaves
¼ cup ketchup


Place onion in a medium bowl, cover with ice water and let soak while you prepare burgers.

Preheat grill to medium.

Place beef in a large bowl and gently mix in cherries, breadcrumbs, garlic, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper until combined.

Divide into 4 equal portions and form into ½-inch-thick patties.

Make a slight impression in the center of each. (This is so the patties cook evenly and don’t puff up.)

Oil the grill rack.

Grill the patties until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 160°F, 5 to 6 minutes per side.

Toast English muffins.

Drain the onions.

Assemble the burgers on the English muffins with onion slices, lettuce and about 1 tablespoon Cherry Ketchup each.
