Recipe: Healthier Cheddar Burger

Recipe-Card small

An American classic made just a bit healthier.

This a healthier version of a recipe I once tried from Blue Apron.  I loved it so much that I slimmed it down.  Cheeseburgers are delicious but there are nto exactly low calorie.

Toast bread in the oven for 1-3 minutes. You could use a toaster if you prefer. I used 1/2 slice for each side of the hamburger.

5

Mix beef with garlic paste and add salt and pepper to the desired level. I did this in a medium mixing bowl.

6

Cook on medium heat for 3-5 minutes per side or until browned. On the second side, add onions and 1/3 of cheese to allow the cheese to melt.

7

Put a thin layer of mustard on the inside of each slice of bread and place the meat on the "bun".
