Burgers are an excellent source of iron and vitamin B12. When choosing a ground beef, watch for extra lean to limit your intake of saturated fat. Also remember to cook burgers all the way through to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F to avoid risk of food poisoning from e. coli.
Time Saver Tip
If you are making these on a busy week-night or as part of a gathering when hosting others at your home, here is a great way to save on mess and time when it’s time to barbecue: mix the ingredients ahead of time! You can mix everything together, roll the ingredients up into balls in the amount of each patty, and store them in an air-tight container in the fridge. Pull them out of the fridge about 10 minutes before you are ready to BBQ and then flatten them into the desirable size of patties before cooking.
