“A healthy pimiento-cheese spread makes an insanely delicious topping for this easy patty melt recipe. To keep the bread-to-burger ratio even (and calories in check), look for a smaller loaf of country bread or cut a large piece in half and use one slice for two servings. ”


    • 2 tablespoons grated onion
    • 1½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    • ½ teaspoon paprika
    • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
    • ⅛ teaspoon salt
    • ⅛ teaspoon ground pepper
    • 8 ounces lean ground beef
    • ¼ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat mayonnaise
    • 1 tablespoon chopped jarred pimientos
    • 1 tablespoon chopped scallions
    • 2 slices whole-wheat country bread, toasted


  • 1 Combine onion, Worcestershire, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add beef and gently knead together. Do not overmix. Form into 2 burgers, about the same size as the bread you're using.
  • 2 Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the burgers and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes total.
  • 3 Meanwhile, preheat broiler to high. Combine cheese, mayonnaise, pimientos and scallions in a small bowl. Toast bread.
  • 4 Place toast on a baking sheet. Top each piece with a burger and half the cheese mixture. Broil until the cheese starts to brown, about 2 minutes.
