1/4 tsp each kosher salt and pepper
Nonstick cooking spray

Accompaniments: hamburger buns, lettuce, tomato and red onion slices

How to make it:

2. Gently mix ground meats and Worcestershire sauce in medium bowl with a fork until blended. Shape meat into four patties about 1 in. thick. Sprinkle both sides of patties with salt and pepper.

3. Coat burgers with nonstick spray. Grill, turning once, 8 to 10 minutes until instant-read thermometer inserted from side to middle registers 160ºF. Serve on buns with lettuce, sliced tomato and red onion.
