Heat a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add onion; cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cook, uncovered, 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Remove onion from pan, and keep warm.
Heat pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and 1/4 teaspoon salt; saute 5 minutes or until tender.

Hot on the Grill. Everything you need for cookouts--except the charcoal — at Cooking Light.
It is hard to believe that this is a Cooking Light recipe! Texas Toast? They are so tasty and full of fat that they are sinful! But the main idea of the recipe is good and can be adapted to ones needs without sacrificing taste.
I make a variation of this for my fmaily. Extra extra lean ground beef, seasoned, sweet onions (no sugar, no salt added, sautee''d with worcestershire) I serve the burger sans bread, top it with horseradish, fat free cheddar, and the sautee'd onions. I serve it with steamed broccoli and wild rice.
Pretty good I left out sugar added Barbaque sauce and I used turkey. Good on the Grill I didn't put it on Texas toast instead I soaked some oat bread in water and added it to the meat mix ture. Iprefer to a bun
I wouldn't use the sugar,not that much salt. I usually use lean ground chuck, or the round. I have a grill skillet, that I use, if I don't grill outside. I also put my onion in the microwave ,or on the grill. Makes great cheeseburgers, at home.
I did the whole thing on the grill- using a cast iron frying pan- I did use "Light" bread- and omitted the sugar- I also used low fat swiss cheese (trying lowfat pepper jack next time) - I'm feeding 5 people so I mix 1pd chuck w/ 1 pd grnd turkey- flavors still good but costs less and less fat- - 7/31/08
When you compare this to a fast food burger of similar portion size, it is healthier and tastier too. I could fit this into my 1400 calories a day if I really wanted a beefy burger. Rather this than feel deprived and go for the fast food burger and fries.
Yes, I left out the sugar and salt, added garlic and basil. I also made it with half turkey and half very lean beef and used toasted multigrain bread instead of the Texas Toast. Good change of pace and a nice treat. I didn't find it too time consuming at all.
