Recipe by SkinnyMinnie

From Cooking Light magazine. You can use the pre-chopped onion and peppers if you like, to make this quicker. Garnish these burgers with your favorite toppings....tomatoes, lettuce, onion, etc.

Delicious! I even skipped the tomato paste as I didn't have any on hand. Didn't add any salt either. I did melt white cheddar cheese on top at the end of cooking...very good!
