  • 1 pound ground beef extra lean
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise divided
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns or sesame seed hamburger buns
  • ½ cup green leaf lettuce leaves torn
  • 1 medium red tomato and/or yellow tomato, sliced
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ½ medium red onion sliced


  • COMBINE ground beef with 1 Tbsp. Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise in bowl. Shape into 4 patties.
  • GRILL or broil until done.
  • SPREAD bun bottoms with remaining Mayonnaise. Top with greens, tomatoes, hamburgers, Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® REAL Ketchup, onions and bun tops.


TIP: Handle the meat as little as you possibly can. The more you work the meat, the tougher it will get.
TIP: You can also broil the burgers in the oven until the meat is cooked through.
TIP: Don't press down on your burgers too hard with a spatula, prick them with a fork or turn too frequently as you will lose precious juices from the meat.
