1 pound Ground Beef (93% or leaner)
Wash hands with soap and water before cooking and always after touching raw meat.
1. Combine ground beef, quinoa, egg and Montreal steak seasoning in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch patties.
2. Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. Place burgers on bottom halves of buns; top with tomato slices and lettuce. Close sandwiches.
Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
3. These burgers may be served on bed of fresh mixed greens drizzled with vinaigrette.
