  • 1 1/4 cups crushed reduced-fat round buttery crackers (such as Ritz; about 20 crackers)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 pounds ground round

Prepare grill.

Combine first 6 ingredients. Divide mixture into 10 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until done. Place buns, cut sides down, on grill rack; grill 1 minute or until toasted. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons ketchup on each bun top. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each bun; top each serving with 1 onion slice and top half of bun.
