This recipe makes kid-sized burgers with a veggie bonus. Lean beef burgers deliver an excellent source of protein, zinc and vitamin B12 – not to mention flavour!



1 lb (500 g) Lean Ground Beef Sirloin or Chuck
¼ cup (50 mL) dry bread crumbs
2 tbsp (30 mL) steak sauce
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ cup (125 mL) shredded Cheddar cheese
Iceberg lettuce wedges, halved grape tomatoes, shredded Cheddar cheese and sliced dill pickles
Yellow Mustard Dressing (recipe follows)


Lightly combine beef, bread crumbs, steak sauce, onion, egg and shredded cheese.

Gently form into four ¾-inch (2 cm) thick patties.

Grill over medium-high heat on lightly oiled grill for 5 to 7 minutes per side or until digital instant read thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty reads 160°F (71°C)

Top lettuce wedges with cooked patties. Add some grape tomatoes, cheese and pickles. Drizzle with some Yellow Mustard Dressing.

Yellow Mustard Dressing: Combine ½ cup (125mL) Thousand Islands Dressing with ¼ cup (50mL) yellow mustard.
