Relax Don’t Overwork……..

When making perfect hamburger patties, remember: the more you handle the meat, the tougher your burger will be. In a large bowl, pull the meat apart into small chunks, add salt or other seasonings, and toss gently with fingers spread apart until loosely mixed.

Where’s the wax paper……

 

When freezing hamburgers, chops, or steaks, which tend to stick together when frozen, separate them with pieces of waxed paper or freezer wrap. You will then be able to remove the amount needed without thawing the whole batch.

Make sure those Burgers are done……

 

Lots of people like steaks rare (like myself), but don’t do the same for your hamburger. More bacteria is present in ground beef, so cook until it’s well done and no pink is in the middle. If in doubt, grab a meat thermometer and make sure the temperature reaches no less than 160 degrees in the burger’s center.

Low-Calorie Summer BBQ Recipes

Healthier burgers, side salads, sandwiches and more low-calorie recipes for your summer BBQ.EatingWell2

Whether you’re hosting the barbecue or bringing a potluck dish to share, our lighter pasta salad recipes, healthy burger recipes, low-calorie dessert recipes and BBQ chicken recipes are crowd pleasers. Try Grilled Shrimp Skewers over White Bean Salad for a seafood dish to share or Broccoli, Ham & Pasta Salad for a side dish you can make ahead.

 

 

Grilled Shrimp Skewers over White Bean Salad
Fresh herbs make all the difference in this light, summery bean salad that in turn makes an aromatic bed for the easy grilled shrimp. The shrimp and salad are wonderful together but you could also make them separately. Consider skewering and grilling scallops as another delicious option…..

 
Broccoli, Ham & Pasta Salad
A great make-ahead entree, this lightened-up pasta salad is loaded with broccoli and peppers. Smoky ham and sweet raisins give it plenty of punch. Enjoy the leftovers for a fuss-free lunch. Recipe by Nancy Baggett for EatingWell……

 
Classic Hamburger
Slow-cooked onions add moisture and flavor to these lean beef burgers. A quick blend of mayonnaise, ketchup, relish and vinegar makes a perfect tangy, sweet and creamy “special sauce” for this burger. We love the dill relish here, but use sweet relish if you prefer it. Serve with sweet potato fries…….

Thank you to Ben W. for passing these handy grilling tips for Burgers along to share!……..

 
* Use high heat and cook them fast! Like most thin meat products, it’s best to apply high and direct heat to your hamburger and cook it as fast as possible. Leave the lid open, crank up the heat and don’t cook them too long or they will dry out.

 
* Be gentle with that meat! Most people really pack the patties tight and then flatten them down too much. A loosely packed patty makes for a juicy hamburger! If you pack your hamburger patties too tight, you run the risk of drying out the meat and making them tough.

 
* Make a small indent in the middle of each pattie with a press of your thumb. While it usually only happens if you overwork the beef when forming the patty… from time to time a hamburger can puff up in the middle like a football while it cooks. Making a slight dimple in the middle of the patty with your thumb will stop swelling dead in its tracks.

 
* Sprinkle a bit of kosher salt on your burgers before putting them on the grill. Contrary to popular belief, seasoning your patties with a light pinch of salt will NOT dry out your burgers there simply isn’t enough salt, or time, for it to draw out any moisture. What it WILL do is wake up and intensify the flavors

With the 4th of July weekend almost here, eat healthy – What to Eat at a BBQ and Worst BBQ Dishes to Avoid. From EatingWell website. Not only do they have a fantastic website but they also have EatingWell Magazine, I’ve been a subscriber for 4 years now. It’s always full of delicious and healthy recipes. http://www.eatingwell.com/

 
What to Eat at a BBQ and Worst BBQ Dishes to Avoid

EatingWell2

Find out what BBQ dishes to eat at your next cookout and which BBQ foods to skip.

 
I love the traditional BBQ foods of summer: burgers and dogs, creamy salads, yummy desserts. While BBQ foods tend not to be the stuff that’s going to win any nutrition awards, you can partake and still walk away with your shorts buttoned. It just means making the right choices—and, no, you don’t have to limit yourself to the corn on the cob and watermelon. Just skip (most of) the worst BBQ dishes; the best ones are often just as satisfying.

 
Bad BBQ Dish: A Cheeseburger
A quarter-pound beef burger with a slice of cheese will set you back 510 calories (26 grams of fat). Skipping the cheese will save you about 100 calories. But if you love a good burger, go for it. It’s an excellent source of iron……

 
Better BBQ Dish: Hot Dog
A hot dog is lower in calories than you might think. Enjoy one on a roll with your favorite toppings (with lower-cal toppings like mustard, relish or just a little ketchup) and you’ll come out around 300 calories, 17 g fat…..

When grilling those burgers…..

 

Poke a hole in the middle of the hamburger patties while shaping them. The burgers will cook faster and the holes will disappear when done.
