Ooey Gooey CHEESEburger!


YES, YOU READ IT RIGHT, CHEESEBURGER! One of my goals with this blog is to open people's minds into thinking that there is a way to enjoy healthy meals & to feel satisfied when doing so.

What you need:
1 lb extra lean ground beef (96% preferably but definitely above 90%!)
4 slices - Reduced fat cheese (should be around 50-60 calories per slice)
4 - Whole wheat hamburger buns or 2 slices granny delight wheat & fiber bread
1 - Tomato
1 - small red onion
Condiments of choice: yellow mustard, low sugar ketchup & 1/2 tbsp olive oil mayo

You all know how to construct a cheeseburger I am sure so I won't go into detail. But through experience I have learned - Make sure you mush up the hamburger well with your hands before separating to make into patties. This will help keep the hamburger in one piece while cooking!

This makes 4 servings & when I calculated how many calories the cheeseburger pictured above had it came out to be about 400 calories! Serve with a side salad with low calorie/low sugar dressing & you've got yourself one heck of a meal!
