Bottled Caesar dressing in and all around the burgers is the flavor secret to this great grilled burger.
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
cup Caesar dressing
teaspoon peppered seasoned salt
small sweet onion, cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices
cups shredded romaine lettuce
tablespoons freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
burger buns, split
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In medium bowl, mix beef, parsley, 2 tablespoons of the dressing and the peppered seasoned salt. Shape mixture into 4 patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
Place patties on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160ºF. Add onion slices to grill for last 8 to 10 minutes of cooking, brushing with 2 tablespoons of the dressing and turning once, until crisp-tender.
In small bowl, toss lettuce, remaining 1/4 cup dressing and the cheese. Layer lettuce mixture, burger and onion in each bun.
Avoid overmixing the ground beef mixture or the cooked burgers will be dense and heavy.
If you dampen your hands with water before forming hamburger patties, the meat won't stick to your hands.
Avoid pressing down on the hamburger patties with a spatula while they're grilling--you'll squeeze out the flavorful juices!
