Eat This: That's a Speecy, Spicy Meat Patty!

When Parnell and I were dating, we grilled - a lot.  These burgers were in heavy rotation.


2 lbs. low-fat ground beef
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
3 T fat-free cream cheese
1 T grated onion
1 T finely chopped pickled jalapenos
Vegetable cooking spray
8 onion sandwich buns
8 lettuce leaves
8 tomato slices
8 onion slices

Combine first three ingredients; shape into 16 thin patties.  Combine cream cheese, onion and jalapenos; spread evenly onto 8 patties, spreding to within 1/2 inch from edges.  Top with remaining patties, pressing edges to seal.  Coat food rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals.  Place patties on rack and cook, covered with grill lid, 15 minutes on each side or until done.  Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato and onion.  Yield:  8 burgers.
