Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded extra-old Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 onion finely grated
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • 1 cup thick salsa

Method

In large bowl, beat eggs with water; stir in cheese, bread crumbs, onion, chili powder, salt and pepper. Add beef; mix just until combined. Shape into eight 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties. (Make-ahead: Wrap, separated by waxed paper, and refrigerate for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 1 month; thaw in refrigerator.)

Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside and digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre reads 160°F (71°C), about 15 minutes.

Toast buns if desired. Place each burger in bun; top burger with salsa.
