Ingredients

1 1/2
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon pepper
2
sweet onions, halved, thinly sliced and separated into half-rings
Cooking spray
1/2
cup garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese (from 4- to 6.5-oz container)
4
hoagie buns, split
4
leaves green leaf lettuce
  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In medium bowl, mix ground beef, salt and pepper. Shape mixture into 4 oval patties, about 1/2 inch thick, to fit hoagie buns.
  • 2 Cut 2 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Generously spray half of one side of each foil sheet with cooking spray. Place onions evenly in center of sprayed portion of foil; generously spray onions with cooking spray. Fold unsprayed half of foil over onions so edges meet; seal edges with tight 1/2-inch folds and fold again, allowing room for heat expansion.
  • 3 When grill is heated, place patties and packets on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals; cover grill. Cook 11 to 13 minutes, turning patties and packets over once, until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F and onions are tender.
  • 4 Spread cheese onto bottom halves of buns. Top each with lettuce leaf, patty and onions. Cover with top halves of buns.
