Tonight Dean made dinner. He grilled hamburgers and sautéed string beans. To keep the hamburgers light and delicious, I combine half of the burger meat with 93% lean ground beef and turkey breast meat. I emphasize the breast in the turkey meat because it only has 1 gram of fat per serving, unlike just ground turkey meat which has about 10 grams of fat per serving. Combining the two types of meat gives you a tasty yet lighter burger.
To make the burgers a little more interesting, I cooked onions and ketchup sauce as a topping to the burgers. It’s a little tastier than just ketchup and doesn’t add any fat to the dish. Try it out…
