Recipe by: Lisa Lillien (a.k.a. Hungry Girl)
Makes 4 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes; Cook Time: 15 minutes; Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup light/reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup jarred jalapeño peppers, drained and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. + 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. + 1/8 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 lb. raw extra-lean ground beef (4% fat or less)
  • 1/3 cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup (about 2 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
  • 1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper

Directions

  1. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion until softened and browned about 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  2. Add cream cheese, chopped jalapeño peppers, 1/8 tsp. garlic powder, and 1/8 tsp. onion powder. Mix until uniform.
  3. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all remaining ingredients, including remaining 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, and remaining 1/2 tsp. onion powder. Divide into four portions.
  4. Divide one portion in half, and flatten each half into a thin patty. Place 1/4th of cream cheese mixture (about 3 tbsp.) in the center of one patty. Top with the other patty, and squeeze edges to seal, forming one stuffed patty. Repeat to make 3 more stuffed patties.
  5. Bring a grill sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Grill patties for 4 minutes with the grill cover down.
  6. Flip patties. With the grill cover down, grill for 4 more minutes, or until cooked to your preference.
