German Burgers

Serves: 6
Total Calories: 437


1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup soft pumpernickel bread crumbs
2 tablespoons beer or beef broth
1 tablespoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon caraway seed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
6 slices Swiss cheese
6 pumpernickel sandwich buns, split
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can sauerkraut, drained
Garnish: additional mustard


In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except cheese, buns and sauerkraut. Mix gently and form into 6 patties. Grill or pan-fry patties until no longer pink, about 10 to 15 minutes, turning halfway through. Top with cheese; let stand until cheese melts. Grill buns, if desired. Serve burgers on buns; top with sauerkraut and mustard. Serves 6.

Tip: A tasty apple coleslaw goes well with German Burgers. Simply toss together a large bag of coleslaw mix and a chopped Granny Smith apple. Stir in coleslaw dressing or mayonnaise to desired consistency.
