Low Fat Hamburger

With just a few ingredients you can fix dinner for the whole week.

servings: 12
time: 45 minutes

2 lb ground beef (I used ground sirloin, 4% fat)
2 eggs
½ diced onion
4 garlic cloves, minced
½ cup bread crumbs, plain
salt and pepper to taste
½ cup chopped fresh parsley

1 – Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
2 – With a measuring tool (the ice cream scoop or a 1/3 cup), measure 12 meatballs.
3 – Shape into burgers, putting on a board or a baking sheet lined with foil paper.
4 – Bake for 25 minutes (350°F).
5 – Let it rest 10 minutes before serving.
Tips and Options
  • You can use any type of ground meat (chicken, beef or turkey). The leaner, the better.
  • Serve with green salad and rice or mashed potatoes.
  • Freeze the burgers still raw. Wrap each one in plastic wrap and then use a ziploc bag.
  • This is a great dinner option for those wanting to stay in shape. Just bake one burger and eat with a big green salad.
Original Recipe (in Portuguese): Hambúrguer Caseiro (light).
