Plum Juicy Burgers

  • 1 pound 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon prune baby food or dried plum puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and warmed
  • Lettuce leaves, tomato slices and condiments ( optional)

Directions:

In medium bowl, combine beef and baby food; mix lightly but thoroughly. ( For best flavor and appearance, form and cook patties immediately after mixing meat mixture.) Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Heat large nonstick skillet about 2 minutes over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet ; cook 10-12 minutes to medium ( 160 F) doneness, until no longer pink in centers and juices show no pink color, turning once. Season with salt and pepper after turning . Serve burgers in buns with lettuce , tomato and condiments, if desired.
