Mediterranean Burger Recipe

For the best taste and optimum freshness, connoisseurs recommend organic ground beef. "USDA-certified organic ground beef is made from animals that have not been injected with synthetic hormones or antibiotics, and that eat food free of animal byproducts and grown without pesticides," said Michael Levine, president of Organic Prairie Family of Farms, one of the nation's leading cooperatives of organic farmers and providers of organic meat.

Here are some burger-making tips from Organic Prairie.

* For the best flavor, use 85 percent lean ground beef. If you choose leaner meat, add a splash of tomato juice or Worcestershire sauce to increase flavor and moisture.
* Finely mince any garlic, onions, or other vegetables that will be mixed into the meat. Larger chunks will make the burger fall apart on the grill.
* Wet and clean your hands before making the patties. They should be formed loosely, not packed or pressed, and about one-half-inch thick and slightly wider than the bun.

1 1/2 pounds Organic Prairie ground beef (thawed)
1 1/2 medium green onion (chopped)
