1 whole wheat French baguette, cut into four sections
2 Tbsp. pesto sauce
Mix burger ingredients in a small bowl, adding ground beef last. Shape into four elongated patties to fit the bread portions. Cover and refrigerate the burgers until ready to cook.
Heat two-sided contact grill to high. Add burgers and set timer for four minutes. Check with an instant-read meat thermometer inserted horizontally. They’re done at 160 degrees. You can warm the bread and spread with pesto sauce while the burgers are cooking. Optional garnishes to add color – but not too many calories — include roasted red peppers, black olives, pine nuts, fresh tomatoes, and lettuce.
