Surf and Turf Beef Burger
This is a budget-wise version of the steak-house classic. Lean beef burgers deliver an excellent source of protein, zinc and vitamin B12 – not to mention flavour!

¼ cup (50 mL) dry bread crumbs
2 tbsp (30 mL) steak sauce
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten

Lightly combine beef, bread crumbs, steak sauce, onion, egg and fresh dill.
Gently form into four ¾-inch (2 cm) thick patties.
