  • 1 lb 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp fat-free mayo
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup salsa of choice, divided


  • In a mixing bowl combine ground beef, egg, mayo and taco seasoning. Mix until well combined.
  • Heat a grill pan to medium and spray lightly with cooking spray. Separate the meat into 8 thin patties.
  • In a separate small bowl, combine reduced fat cheese and salsa. Divide evenly on 4 of the patties. Top those patties with the other 4 and seal the sides.
  • Add beef patties to the pan (in batches if necessary) and cook on each side about 5 minutes or until no pink is showing. The temp of the beef should be 155F.
  • Slice up a tomato or other toppings as desired and serve with a vegetable side dish.
