Basil Pan Burgers

I was in the mood for burgers for dinner tonight, so I went to go-to burger recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. It's only it a little bit of extra work for a much better burger. It also was a great recipe to test out my new cast iron grill pan! This recipe is also really delicious with ground turkey.

Basil Pan Burgers
from The Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook

makes 4 burgers

1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 T. fine dry bread crumbs
2 T. snipped fresh basil or 1 t. dried basil, crushed
2 T. ketchup
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb. lean ground beef

1. In a medium bowl combine egg, onion, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, basil, ketchup, salt, pepper, and garlic. Add beef; mix well. Shape beef mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.

2. Lightly coat a heavy skillet with cooking spray (or use a heavy nonstick skillet). Preheat skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add patties. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until temperature measures 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, turning patties once halfway through cooking. If patties brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium low. Serve patties on buns with desired fixings.
