Out-n-In California Burger ( only 389 calories!)
This recipe comes from a Cooking Light magazine. They took the popular In-n-Out Burger and made a healthy version. It was soooooooooo good! The dressing & the avocado made the flavor very unique. Hard to believe that one of these burgers is only 389 calories and that is with sauce & cheese! (makes 4 burgers)
3 TBS Ketchup
2 TBS Canola Mayo
2 Tsp sweet pickle relish
1 Tsp Dijon Mustard
1 lb ground sirloin
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
4 slices of reduced fat Swiss Cheese
4 lettuce leaves
4 hamburger buns (we used whole wheat & toasted them in the oven)
1/4 red onion, sliced
4 (1/4") slices tomato
1/2 ripe peeled avocado, cut ino 1/8" thick slices
8 bread & butter pickle chips (optional)
Combine the first four ingredients in a small bowl. This is your sauce.
Divide the beef into 4 equal patties. Sprinkle them with even amounts of salt & pepper. Heat a large skillet or grill pan over medium high heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan, cook 3 minutes on each side. Top each patty with 1 cheese slice. Cook 2 more minutes or until the cheese is melted and the patties are done to your liking.
Place one lettuce leaf on the bottom of your roll. Add a patty, onion slices, a tomato slice, about 2 avocado slices, 2 pickle chips (optional). Add 1 1/2 TBS sauce to top of roll. Enjoy!
