A Recipe From the Archives–DIY Wednesday

Recently a recipe I had posted almost a year ago has been getting some mega hits on Pinterest.  So I thought I would share it with you all again.  This was off my old blog that I no longer post on.   It is still my all-time, favorite home-made hamburger recipe (even if it is healthy, lol). 

I hope you all enjoy it!


Weight Watcher’s Best Grilled Hamburgers

Originally posted on August 7, 2012

I have made this recipe twice numerous times now and I think it is my favorite burger recipe (plus I always have the ingredients on hand!).  Tonight I even made it with lean pork instead (ground pork tends to be a little cheaper) and it was still just as yummy!   And the best part is…they’re from Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook – can we say, YES PLEASE!   My secret sister gave me this cookbook and I’m really excited about trying some of these recipes.

1lb lean ground meat (pork or beef)

1/2 cup of finely chopped scallions (although I just used a regular onion)

1/4 fat-free egg substitute (again, I used an actual egg, lol)

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp dry mustard

1/2 tsp salt (I find these very salty, however, and plan on leaving this out next time)

1/4 tsp black pepper

For purposes of the point value I will add the remaining although these are totally optional

4 whole wheat buns

4 slices sweet onion (such as Vidalia)

4 thick tomato slices

4 lettuce leaves

1/4 cup ketchup

Mix together beef, scallions, egg substitute, W sauce, dry mustard, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until just combined.  With damp hands, shape mixture into 4 (1/2inch-thick) patties (and believe me you won’t get more than that out of it so double the recipe if you want more).  Serve with above ingredients and this comes to a total point value of: 8  =)   293 calories (in case anyone was wondering)…lol.
