Nutrition per serving may change if servings are adjusted.
3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
12 ounces lean ground pork (see Note)
½ teaspoon ground pepper
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
⅛ teaspoon salt
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
2 romaine lettuce leaves, halved
¾ cup bottled roasted red peppers, drained and divided into large pieces
Combine mayonnaise, mustard, and honey in a small bowl; cover and chill.
Combine pork, ground pepper, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, and salt in a medium bowl. Shape into four ½-inch-thick patties.
For a charcoal grill, place patties on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 10 to 12 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into side of each patty registers 160°F, turning patties once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on the grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
To assemble, spread reserved honey-mustard mixture on cut sides of bun tops. Place lettuce leaves, grilled burgers, and roasted red peppers on bun bottoms. Add bun tops, spread sides down.
Ingredient Note: Instead of purchasing pre-ground pork which can be high in fat, buy a whole piece of lean pork loin and grind it in a food processor.
