You can’t find a more classic American meal than a nice juicy burger. This isn’t really a meal most of us think of when we think about what to eat for weight loss...but let me tell you, I have a delicious recipe that will satisfy ANY burger fan and still help you lose weight!
I love adding dijionaise to the recipe below or even Walden Farm’s BBQ sauce. One of the best things is that, with the new Metabolic More menu, now I can put a serving of dill pickles on my burger! Bacon, Cheese AND Pickles on top of a nice juicy burger what more could I ask for???
- 12 oz lean ground grass fed beef
- Lower Sodium Montreal Steak Seasoning©
- 2 oz. cheddar cheese, cut into ½ oz slices (or any hard cheese of your choice)
- 4 slices uncured bacon, cooked
- 4 Sandwich Thin Buns
- 8 oz Tomato, sliced
- Cooking Spray
Form the ground beef into four equal patties and sprinkle each side with Lower Sodium Montreal Steak Seasoning. Heat a grill pan or cast-iron skillet over high heat, then spray with cooking spray. Add the patties and cook about 3 minutes, then flip and top each with a ½ oz slice of cheddar. Cover and continue cooking 3 more minutes for medium rare. Once cooked, place burger on ½ of Sandwich Thin Bun. Top burger with 1 slice bacon, 2 oz tomato and lettuce leaf.
