WOW – finally a great-tasting lean burger! Chopped mushrooms and evaporated milk are added for extra juiciness, and Worcestershire sauce is a super-simple seasoning. Use a moderate heat for grilling to avoid scorching.


  • 1 lb Extra Lean or Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Pepper, to taste


  1. Lightly combine all ingredients.
  2. Gently form into six or seven 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties. Cover and chill for 1 hour or up to 1 day.
  3. Cook patties over medium heat on lightly greased grill for 6 to 7 minutes per side until a digital instant read thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty reads at least 160°F.
