Ingredients

  • 1

    pound 96% lean ground beef

  • 1

    tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2

    tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 to 1

    tsp crushed red pepper flakes, to taste

  • 1/4

    tsp salt

  • 3

    oz low-fat mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced

  • 1/2

    cup marinara sauce

  • 4

    whole-grain or whole-wheat hamburger buns, split

Directions

Preheat a grill to high heat. In a large bowl, mix the beef, oregano, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and salt until well combined. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape into balls, packing them tightly as you do. Press each into a patty that is about 1/2" larger than the diameter of the buns. Grill the burgers for about 2 minutes per side for medium rare, or until desired doneness (do not smash the burgers with a spatula). About 1 minute before they are done, divide the cheese slices among the tops and let melt. Meanwhile, spoon the sauce into a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on low until hot, 30 to 60 seconds. Place the bun halves, cut sides down, on an upper grill rack or away from direct flame for about 20 seconds, or until toasted. Place each bun bottom on a serving plate, toasted side up. Place the patties, cheese side up, on top of the bun bottoms. Spread 2 Tbsp sauce on each bun top, flip atop the patties, and serve. 4 servings, 304 calories each
