Beef up everyone's summer grilling favorite with Worcestershire sauce, bell pepper, and other simple seasonings you probably have on hand, then top with a slice of good ole American cheese.
Updated Feb 23, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion (1 small)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 slices (1 oz) American cheese
  • 6 burger buns, split
  • 1/4 cup sandwich spread (from 16-oz jar)
  • Red onion slices, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In medium bowl, mix ground beef, onion, bell pepper, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, garlic powder and pepper until well blended. Shape mixture into 6 patties, 1/2 inch thick.
  • 2
    Place patties on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 13 to 15 minutes, turning once, until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F. To toast buns, place cut sides down on grill during last 1 to 2 minutes of cooking time. Top each patty with cheese slice; cook just until cheese is melted.
  • 3
    Spread cut sides of toasted buns with sandwich spread; top with onion slices. Place cheese-topped patties in buns.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Sandwich spread is a mayonnaise-based product with pickle relish and special seasonings added for a tangy and slightly sweet flavor. Look for it in the mayonnaise section of the supermarket.
  • tip 2
    This recipe is easy to double if you are entertaining a crowd. Just be sure you have space on your grill for 12 patties or cook them in batches.
