- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 medium red onion, halved lengthwise and sliced
- 1 1/4 pounds lean grass-fed ground beef or 90% lean ground beef
- 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 5 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1/2 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 1/2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (about 1/3 cup)
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 4 whole wheat hamburger buns
- 4 leaves green leaf lettuce
- 1 medium tomato, sliced
- Heat the broiler and coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Heat the oil in a medium skillet on medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- Combine the beef, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, 4 tablespoons of the parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and freshly ground black pepper in a large bowl. Form into 4 patties, about 3" wide and 1/2 " thick. Place on the prepared baking sheet and broil 6" from the heat until the patties feel firm and the centers are no longer pink, turning halfway through, about 12 minutes.
- Mix the yogurt, blue cheese, mustard, and the remaining 1 tablespoon parsley in a small bowl. Spread the top halves of the buns with the yogurt mixture. Top the bottom half of each bun with a patty, lettuce leaf, one-quarter of the onions, and a slice of tomato. Cover with the top halves of the buns and serve.
