Blueberry-Beef Burgers

From: EatingWell

Whatever the season, burgers remain America's favorite sandwich. When it is too cold to grill outdoors, broil the patties or use an indoor grill. In addition to the standard fixings--ketchup, salsa, onions and tomatoes--make your burgers more nutritious by adding dark greens, such as watercress or spinach.

 by 2 people
2 slices  whole-wheat country bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
1/3 cup  fresh or frozen and thawed blueberries
1 tablespoon  balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons  Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon  Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves  garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste
12 ounces  90%-lean ground beef
1. Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl. (No need to wash the workbowl.)
2. Add blueberries, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire, garlic, salt and pepper to the food processor; process until pureed. Scrape into the bowl with the breadcrumbs. Add ground beef and mix well with a potato masher. Divide the mixture into four equal portions; form into 1/2-inch-thick patties, about 4 inches in diameter.
3. Meanwhile, preheat broiler or heat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium-high. If using the broiler, coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. If using a grill, oil the grill rack by rubbing it with an oil-soaked paper towel. Cook patties until browned and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 160 degrees F. Serve immediately, with or without rolls and toppings.
