  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 4 slices sweet onion (1/2-inch)
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 4 crusty rolls, split, toasted
  • Romaine lettuce, tomato slices


  1. Lightly shape Ground Beef into four 3/4-inch thick patties. Coat onion with cooking spray. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange onion around patties. 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. Season with salt and pepper after turning. About 1 minute before patties are done, top each with 2 cheese slices.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
  2. Combine mayonnaise and mustard; spread on top halves of rolls. Serve burgers and onion in rolls with lettuce and tomato, as desired.
