Caesar Burgers in a Pita
1 ¼ pounds ground beef (**sale** $1.59/lb. sold in a 5 lb. chub)
½ cup creamy Caesar dressing (**sale** $1.88)
1 egg (**sale** Large Brown Eggs $2.29/doz.)
½ cup bread crumbs
6 pita (pocket) bread halves
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 large tomato, diced (**sale** Large Hydroponic Tomatoes $0.99/lb.)
1 cucumber, diced
Heat grill to a medium high heat. In a medium bowl, mix ground beef, ¼ cup Caesar dressing, the egg and bread crumbs. (I prefer Panko Bread Crumbs, but regular will be fine.) Shape into 6 equal size patties (about ½ -inch thick). place patties on grill and cover grill. Cook on medium heat 7-10 minutes, turning only once or until center of patties is 160 degrees. During last minute, top each patty with cheese. If desired, place pita bread on grill for a minute to warm up or place in microwave. Fill pita halves with meat patty, remaining dressing, tomato and cucumber. Serve with Vegetable Spears and potato chips. Makes 6 servings.
Vegetable Spears: Cut desired vegetables into long “spears” or pieces. Serve in a glass with the vegetables standing up. I chose carrots, celery, and a red pepper for mine, however, choose vegetables your family likes and enjoys. If desired, serve with salad dressing on the side for dipping. Total Meal $14.00.
