Blue Cheese-Stuffed Burgers

 

Yield: 4 servings

Points: 7 for burger on English muffin, 5 for burger alone

Source: Cooking Light, July 1996

 

Cooking spray

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1 pound ground round

3 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons water

1 egg white, lightly beaten

1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled blue cheese

1/4 cup fat-free sour cream

4 (1-ounce) English muffins, toasted

4 lettuce leaves

4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato

 

Coat a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium heat until hot. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat; let cool. Combine onion, beef, breadcrumbs, water, and egg white in a large bowl; stir well. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping into 1/2-inch-thick patties. Spoon 1 tablespoon cheese into the center of 4 patties; top with remaining patties. Press edges together to seal.

 

Prepare grill. Place patties on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until done.

 

Spread 1 tablespoon sour cream over top half of each muffin, and set aside. Line bottom halves of muffins with lettuce leaves; top each with a tomato slice, a patty, and top half of muffin.
