Sun-Dried Tomato Burgers

Sun-Dried Tomato Burgers


* 1 pound lean ground beef
* 1 tablespoon finely chopped, drained, oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
* 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon or lime peel
* 1/4 cup light mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing
* 2 tablespoons snipped fresh basil
* 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
* 4 onion hamburger buns
* 1 cup lightly packed arugula or spinach leaves


In a medium bowl combine beef, tomatoes, lemon peel, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 1/2-inch-thick patties. Grill patties on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat for 14 to 18 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in side of burger registers 160 degrees F, turning once.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine mayonnaise dressing, basil, and jalapeno pepper; mix well. For the last 1 to 2 minutes of grilling, place buns, cut sides down, on grill rack to toast. Top bottom halves of buns with burgers. Top with mayonnaise dressing mixture and arugula. Add bun tops.
