Today is international burger day, and we’ll be celebrating by firing up the old barbecue for supper!

Tammy Fit Healthy Burger & Fries

1 small onion, chopped
1-1/2 tsp olive oil, divided
12 oz/340 g 95 per cent lean ground beef
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce or steak sauce
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 sprouted whole grain hamburger buns
4 slices tomato
2 leaves romaine lettuce
2 tsp dill pickle relish
5 oz/141 g white potatoes, sliced into strips
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, cover and cook, stirring often until the onion is softened, 4 to 6 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft, 5 to 8 minutes more. Transfer to a medium bowl and let cool for a few minutes. Add beef, Worcestershire (or steak sauce) and pepper to the onion and gently combine without over mixing. Form into 2 patties, about 3/4-inch thick. Coat a nonstick pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add burgers, reduce heat to medium and cook, turning once (about 5 minutes per side). For the fries, preheat the oven to 400 F/204 C. Line a pan with parchment paper. Toss the sliced potatoes with 1/2 tsp olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, flipping halfway though. To assemble, place a patty on a burger bun with 2 tomato slices, lettuce and 1 tsp relish. Serve with ½ the fries. Save the leftovers in an airtight container for another meal.
