Don's Mushroom Burger
Flexitarian – 3+ Carb Choices
Updated © 2012

I love hamburgers. So, even though I had to lower my fat content and sodium to "below the line," I figured out how to make one I could enjoy anytime I wanted. Try it, you’ll like it. The fat has also been reduced here.

  • 1 sesame sandwich bun (12.3 mg)
  • 1 inner leaf Romaine lettuce (.48 mg)
  • 2-ounces lean ground beef* (37 mg)
  • 4 medium to large mushrooms, diced (3.68 mg)

  • 1 teaspoon honey mustard (5 mg) (3.3mg)
  • 1 slice medium tomato (1.8mg)
  • 1 ounce (slice) low sodium Swiss or Cheddar cheese** (3.92 mg)

    Mix mushrooms and diced onion into meat. Cook meat mixture in nonstick pan, pressing down hard to make it bun size. Toast the buns inner side only, let cheese melt on top bun. Layer mustard on lower bun. Add no-salt-added ketchup if you like. Place meat against the melted cheese when the meat is done. Close sandwich. Delicious.

*May use turkey or chicken burger instead.
**Low sodium no-salt-added cheeses may list on their FDA labels from 5 mg to 10 mg per ounce.
