Total Time: 22 minutes
Makes: 4

Ingredients

  1. 11/2 pounds lean ground beef
  2. 1/2 of a small yellow onion, chopped
  3. 1 tablespoon minced Compliments Organic Oregano
  4. 1/2 teaspoon Compliments ground cinnamon
  5. salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 1 Safeway SELECT® Artisan European Style Baguette

Method

  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat. In a bowl, mix together beef, onion, oregano, cinnamon, and salt and pepper to taste just until blended. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions and shape into oval patties about 4 inches long and 2 inches wide.
  2. When grill is ready, place patties over heat and cook, turning once or twice, until done to your liking, 10-12 minutes for rare. 
  3. Remove burgers from grill and transfer to a platter.
  4. Cut baguette crosswise into 4 equal pieces, then cut each piece in half horizontally. 
  5. Lay the bottom portion of each baguette on a plate. Top with two burgers and add lettuce to taste. Arrange top of baguette over meat and lettuce and serve.
  6. These are mildly seasoned burgers. If you want bolder flavour, increase the oregano and cinnamon to taste.
