1/4 teaspoon salt

Fresh ground pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, add the ground beef.

3. To make bread crumbs: remove crust, break up bread and add to a blender or food processor. Process until the bread turns into crumbs.

4. To the beef, add the bread crumbs, onions, egg whites, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, to taste. Using your hands, mix together all the ingredients.
