As you know, Steve and I are currently on an Eating out Ban (with a few exceptions)…you can read about it here. And we are looking for creative and healthy home-cooked options (yes, for those of you living in my little city, ND town...we have cheated a few times, but are attempting to stay strong).
Reagen, our library friend, recently brought over the “Hungry Girl” cookbook, which is jam-packed with healthy food options. One recipe is a cheese filled burger (or course—they recommend going bun-less, but we opted to eat the burger with the bun (actually bread)).
We used the basic premise to make this burger with our own twist. It is DE-LICIOUS!
This burger uses Laughing Cow cheese as the filling…those 35 calorie cheese wedges. And one wedge is the perfect amount for the center.
|This cheese makes an excellent snack!|
Steve made four patties (two patties/burger) and seasoned to taste. He then placed one laughing cow cheese in the center as well as chopped/fried bacon (we actually had left-over bacon from a previous meal and it worked great).
Put the two burger patties together sealing the edges. And grill until done.
While Steve is grilling, I like to toast the bun (we were out of hamburger buns, so instead we used bread (like a patty melt)). I like to use sprayable butter…it works perfect for bun toasting (I use my MISTO for all other purposes).
And put the oven on broil until golden brown.
These burgers were delicious (and healthier). We opted to serve our burger with fresh fruit. WONDERFUL!
