This burger has all the trappings of a Caesar, without the vodka. Lean beef burgers deliver an excellent source of protein, zinc and vitamin B12 – not to mention flavour!



1 lb (500 g) Lean Ground Beef Sirloin or Chuck
¼ cup (50 mL) dry bread crumbs
2 tbsp (30 mL) steak sauce
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tsp (10 mL) Worcestershire sauce
1 celery stalk, minced
1 tsp (5 mL) EACH celery salt and hot pepper sauce


Lightly combine beef, bread crumbs, steak sauce, onion, egg, Worcestershire sauce, celery, celery salt and hot pepper sauce.

Gently form into four ¾-inch (2 cm) thick patties.

Grill over medium-high heat on lightly oiled grill for 5 to 7 minutes per side or until digital instant read thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty reads 160°F (71°C).

Topper: tomato slice sprinkled with celery salt and cocktail pickle as garnish.
