These zesty burgers pack a spicy punch, cooled slightly by the lime peel that’s part of the seasoning. It’s an all-on-the-grill sandwich because you grill both onions for added filling and the bread slices, too.
Updated Jul 5, 2006

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime peel
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Direct heat works best for quick-grilling burgers, chicken breasts and kabobs. Indirect heat works best for slow-barbecuing ribs, turkey legs or roasts.
  • tip 2
    When grating the lime, do not include the white membrane, or pith, which is bitter.
  • tip 3
    When making your shopping list, put ground pork with the other perishables you’ll buy. You’ll want to use it within 2 days after purchase.
