Healthy Hamburger Recipes

Jalapeño Popper Burgers
We’ve taken a simple burger recipe and made it pop with an easy three-ingredient jalapeño cheese topping. Ground sirloin is lean ground beef made exclusively from the center loin cut. It has less connective tissue than regular ground beef for a super-tender burger……

Classic Beef Burgers with Cauliflower Buns
These juicy burgers skip the traditional bread bun in favor of a savory grain-free cauliflower bun that contains a bit of Cheddar cheese. A mixture of onions, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce gives the burger patties tons of flavor, and the addition of a tangy special sauce makes for a burger with serious personality. Note: If you would like to make these burgers gluten-free, be sure to check the ingredients for the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce to make sure they’re gluten-free……

Bacon and Mango Tango Sliders
With a touch of sweet from the mango, savory from the bacon, plus a creamy avocado spread, this healthy slider recipe with takes burgers to a whole new level. Double the avocado mayo and use it for your next BLT……

Buying the ground…..

If you shop at a grocery store or see a butcher that grinds their own beef, choose coarsely ground beef for heartier burgers with a more pleasing texture. For lean ground turkey and chicken burgers, just use a little olive oil to the mixture to add to the tenderness.

A honey-mustard mixture keeps these low-fat patties moist and succulent……

Turkey and Bean Chili
This mild-flavored chili is lower in sodium than most canned chilis or chili seasoning blends……

Turkey and Bean Burritos
