Heavenly Healthy Cheesy Burger Meal

By WLR's Food Information Executive, Laurence Beeken

Who says you can’t eat a juicey burger and chips when on a diet! Our healthy cheesy burger and chips recipe come in at only 406 calories. Compare that to around 800 plus calories for a fast food meal and you’re onto a diet winner!

Taken from our ’Diet on a Budget’ meal plan, which provides info and recipes to help you diet without spending a fortune, our chicken soup recipe makes 1 portions at 406 calories each.

Ingredients

  • 200g Lean Beef mince
  • 2 tsp (10g) Chopped onion
  • 30g reduced fat cheddar cheese
  • 2 lettuce leaves (20g approx)
  • 120g boiled potatoes
  • 15 Sprays 1 cal oil
  • 1 Medium egg, fried
  • 20g Cucumber
  • 1 Med (123g) tomato

Method (Chips):

  1. Preheat the oven to 240°C (475°F, Gas Mark 9)
  2. Cut the potatoes into chunks; boil in unsalted water for 5 minutes and drain.  Dry thoroughly.
  3. Place on a baking tray, spray with fry light and bake for 25 minutes, turning occasionally until cooked through.

Method (Burger):

  1. Preheat the grill to a high heat.
  2. Divide the meat into 4 portions and flatten, divide the onion and cheese in two and place each half on top of a burger (2 in total) and then place the other (plain) burger on top, sealing the edges together to make 2 stuffed burgers.
  3. Grill for 5 minutes per side until done.
  4. Serve with the fried egg, chips and salad.

Notes:

Refrigerate 1 burger for Day 5 lunch (The Budget Diet Plan - Week 2).  The following day you can remove it & microwave to reheat.

Remember to add the low fat chips, tomato, cucumber and egg calories to your diary (Details are in the method for the low-fat chips).
