  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. 93% lean ground beef
  • 1/4 c. black olive tapenade
  • 4 slices ( 3/4 ounce each) reduced-fat Swiss cheese
  • 4 multigrain English muffins, toasted
  • 1/2 tomato, cut into 4 slices


    1. Step 1Preheat the grill to medium-high.
    2. Step 2Heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 9 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the heat and season with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper.
    3. Step 3Meanwhile, gently combine the beef, 2 tablespoons of the tapenade, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a bowl. Form the mixture into 4 patties 1/2″ thick. Set on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill for 5 minutes without turning. Turn and grill for 4 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted sideways registers 160°F. Transfer the burgers to a plate. Top each burger with 1 slice of cheese and let rest 1 to 2 minutes to melt the cheese.
    4. Step 4Spread the bottom half of each English muffin with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the remaining tapenade. Top each with 1 tomato slice, one-fourth of the onions, and a burger. Top each burger with 1 of the the remaining English muffin halves.
    5. Step 5*Limit saturated fat to no more than 10 percent of total calories–about 17 grams per day for most women or 21 grams for most men–and sodium intake to no more than 2,300 milligrams.
