Ultimate cheeseburger

This tasty burger is perfect for grilling and a hit for family mealtimes too! Towering inside a bun with meltingly delicious cheese and tangy mayonnaise, who’d know you were slimming?!

information

Serves: 4
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Syns per serving:  Extra Easy2

ingredients

1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
1lb 4oz 95% fat free extra-lean ground beef
3 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 level tbsp reduced fat/light mayonnaise
2 level tbsp fat-free plain yogurt
1 small red onion
¼ cucumber
2 medium tomatoes
2 little gem lettuces, trimmed and shredded
4 Kraft Singles Light
4 x 2oz whole wheat burger buns

method

1. First prepare the burgers. Place the onion in a large bowl along with the ground beef, 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley and seasoning. Mix well with your hands until combined.

2. Divide the mixture into eight equal portions and form each into a patty about 4-in/10-cm in diameter. Place on a plate lined with parchment paper, cover, and leave to chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise and fromage frais together and season to taste. Cover and chill until required. Peel the red onion and slice thinly into rings. Thinly slice the cucumber and tomatoes. Place them all on a plate, cover, and chill until required.

4. Heat a large nonstick frying pan until very hot and gently press the burgers into the pan - you may need to cook the burgers in two batches. Cook for 1 minute, turn over, and cook for a further minute to seal. Lower the heat to medium and cook for a further 5½-6 minutes, turning frequently until cooked through. Drain and place two burgers, layered in the buns with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, and cucumber and a slice of cheese. Top each with the mayonnaise and sprinkle with the remaining parsley and a little black pepper.

Tip: Suitable for home freezing - burgers only.
