Katie's Healthy Bites: My Favorite Burgers by Katie Cavuto-Boyle in Katie's Healthy Bites, June 28, 2009
Nothing beats sitting in my backyard and enjoying the warm summer air, the view of my garden and, of course, aromas from the grill. Burgers are a favorite at my house, but we tend to steer clear of your run-of-the-mill beef burger, which (though loaded with iron) contains a good amount of saturated fat and cholesterol.
We’re all about building better burgers, and believe me, there are a ton of tasty options beyond just beef. Did you know buffalo or bison meat has less cholesterol than chicken? Bison burgers have just as much flavor as regular beef burgers and, best of all, they taste the same! Turkey burgers, salmon burgers and veggie burgers are also high on my list of non-beef options. Serve them up on a crispy English muffin topped with all your favorite fixins (hold the mayo), and you have a hearty burger for your next cookout.
Here are my tried-and-true bison, turkey and veggie burger recipes.
