How To Make Award Winning 200 Calorie Beef Burgers

 

My favorite summertime BBQ food is burgers.  I tend to watch my red meat intake so sometimes it can be difficult.  I tried making chicken or turkey burgers and it just was not the same. So instead I started purchasing the 90/10 ground beef and ground pork,  cut down on the size of the burgers.  To keep my family happy I made it fun,  I called them sliders just like you can get at the restaurants.  Instead of hamburger buns I used high fiber wheat dinner rolls,  spinach instead of lettuce and low fat cheese.  The health benefits are significant and my family does not feel as though they are eating a "healthy" burger.
