(NC) - Looking for a quick and easy way to liven up your burgers this summer? Here is a terrific recipe you can try on the barbecue. And safe? You bet, says Health Canada, as long as you cook the centre of your burger to a temperature of 71 C (160 F). Use an instant-read food thermometer to make sure the burgers are completely cooked, regardless of the colour of the meat.
In large bowl, lightly combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, oregano, garlic powder and rosemary. Shape into 4 patties, each about 1.5 cm (1/2") thick.
Preheat barbecue. Cook patties on lightly oiled grill over medium-high heat 5-7 minutes per side, turning only once. When patties are almost done, remove from heat and insert an instant-read food thermometer sideways into centre of the thickest burger. If the temperature registers at least 71 C (160 F), the burger is done; if not, continue cooking until a minimum temperature of 71 C (160 F) is reached.
Serve each burger in pita pocket half and top with cheese, olives, onions, cucumber, tomatoes and sauce.
