Burgers are an essential part of any grillmaster's menu, but the calorie count? Let's just say it's high.
But chef Rocco DiSpirito
of Z Living's popular show Now Eat This!
, has come up with a cheeseburger recipe that cuts the calories in half without skipping out on any of that classic burger taste and juiciness. No, really!
When coming up with the recipe, DiSpirito explains:
"A cheeseburger sure sounds good right now. Thankfully, for my health's sake, that wasn't the only thing rattling around my brain. I had to think about how to create a healthy cheeseburger. I know that sounds like the untimate contradiction—
'healthy' and 'cheeseburger'—
but I think I got it: This one is fewer than half the calories of a typical one you'd get at a restaurant. I even made my own 'special' sauce to go with the burgers by blending fat-free mayonnaise, sugar-free relish, and reduced-sugar ketchup."
