Lunch / Dinner
Meatloaf was made for Sundays. But when the craving hits on a weeknight, this is the ticket.
Be gentle with the meatloaf mixture—avoid over-mixing it and turn the burgers gently on the grill.
Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Brush grill grate with oil.
Soak torn bread in eggs in a large mixing bowl; let stand while preparing the burger mixture.
Sauté onion and garlic in butter in a skillet over medium-high heat about 3 minutes. Let onion mixture cool 5 minutes. Add parsley, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper to bread mixture, then mash together.
Combine bread mixture, cooled onion mixture, and ground beef. Divide burger mixture evenly into four portions. Form each patty to match the shape of the French bread slices.
Grill burgers, covered, over direct heat to 160°, about 4–5 minutes per side. To assemble burgers, place one lettuce leaf on each of four French bread slices, then top with burgers, Tomato Bacon Relish, and remaining bread slices.
Combine beef with the bread and onion mixtures. Be sure not to over-mix or the burgers will be tough.
Shape the burgers to fit the bread or buns you're using. If using French bread, shape mixture into oval-shaped patties.
