Healthy Hamburger Recipe
One of the big surprises for me while dieting on Weight Watchers is that some of the WW recipes are better than my old ones. The other day I posted one for tacos and today it's another favourite of mine, hamburgers! When I used to make hamburger patties I would use bread crumbs, an egg and some seasoning. These ones don't call for any of those items and they obviously know what they are doing because when you chow down it's like there's a party in your mouth and everyone is invited! You should bbq up a batch yourself.
1 pound(s) ( ) uncooked lean ground beef
1 Tbsp ( ) Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp ( ) minced garlic
1/2 tsp ( ) table salt
1/4 tsp ( ) black pepper, freshly ground
4 item(s) ( ) reduced-calorie hamburger roll(s)
Coat a large griddle, outdoor grill rack or stovetop grill pan with cooking spray and preheat to medium-high.
In a large bowl, combine beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well and shape mixture into 4 patties, about 1-inch thick each. (To retain juiciness, be careful not to overwork the meat.)
Place burgers on hot griddle or grill and cook 5 minutes per side for medium (or longer until desired doneness).
Serve burgers on rolls with your favourite toppings (could affect POINTS values). Yields 1 burger per serving.
