Blueberry-Beef Burgers

  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 30m

4 servings

Whatever the season, burgers remain America’s favorite sandwich. When it is too cold to grill outdoors, broil the patties or use an indoor grill. In addition to the standard fixings—ketchup, salsa, onions and tomatoes—make your burgers more nutritious by adding dark greens, such as watercress or spinach.

ingredients

  • For Blueberry-Beef Burgers :
  • 2 slices whole-wheat country bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
  • 1/3 cup fresh or frounceen and thawed blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 12 ounces 90%-lean ground beef

directions

Place the bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl. (No need to wash the workbowl).

Add the blueberries, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire, garlic, salt and pepper to the food processor; process until pureed. Scrape into the bowl with the breadcrumbs. Add the ground beef and mix well with a potato masher. Divide the mixture into four equal portions; form into 1/2-inch-thick patties, about 4 inches in diameter.

Meanwhile, preheat the broiler or heat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium-high. If using the broiler, coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. If using a grill, oil the grill rack by rubbing it with an oil-soaked paper towel. Cook the patties until browned and no longer pink in the center, 4-5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 160 degrees F. Serve immediately, with or without rolls and toppings.
