Whoever said you can’t eat burgers when on a diet, was wrong. Just look at the below.
Fact: you CAN eat all of the above on Slimming World and still lose weight.
The recipe below:
Extra Easy – (1 HEa, 1HEb and 1 syn) per person
Original – (1 HEa, 1HEb and 1 syn) per person
For the burgers:
400g of extra lean beef mince
1 onion finely chopped
1 teaspoon of garlic powder or 1 fresh garlic clove (crushed)
a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce
a sprinkling of mixed herbs
salt and black pepper
3 x (57g) Wholemeal Rolls (3xHEb)
3 slices of lean back bacon or Canadian bacon
6 x light cheese slices, or 3x42g servings of reduced fat cheddar (3xHEa)
pickles (sliced gherkin)
1 red onion sliced
3 tablespoons of ketchup (3 syns)
1 tomato sliced
Add the mince, chopped onion, egg, garlic powder, mixed herbs and Worcestershire sauce to a food processor to bind all together (I like to do it this way, because I think it holds the burger together better, but you can do it by hand if you prefer).
Form into 3 equal sized patties
Preheat a George Foreman grill or grill pan.
Add your burgers and grill until cooked through.
You will need to add the bacon and sliced red onion to the grill pan half way through the burgers cooking time.
When the burgers are almost done, add one of the light cheese slices to each burger so that it melts on top and cook your 3 eggs on a frying pan sprayed with non stick spray.
Then you can stack your burgers in the wholemeal rolls (I suggest slightly toasting your wholemeal rolls). Stack with first the lettuce, then tomato, then your bacon slices, then your spare light cheese slices, then the burger (topped with the other light cheese slices, the cooked onion, pickles and finally your egg and a tablespoon of tomato ketchup.
These are really filling just on their own so I would serve with just a mixed side salad.
However it goes great with SW wedges/chips for an Extra Easy day also.
Seriously these are so good. You will not be disappointed.
