Caesar Burgers in a Pita

  • 1 ¼ pounds ground beef
  • ½ cup creamy Caesar dressing
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 6 pita (pocket) bread halves
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • Potato Chips

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, you can choose vegetables your family enjoys. If desired, serve with salad dressing on the side for dipping.
