    You will need some napkins for this juicy burger! Serve this delicious, low-carb version with a side of skinny potato skins or Zucchini Fries. This will surely become a family favorite in your home just as it is in ours.  

    Ingredients Needed:                                                   

    For the cheeseburger:

    • 1.25 pounds lean ground sirloin between 4-8% fat, or ground turkey
    • Burger seasoning of your choice, 2 teaspoons (We like the Beef and Burger Herb from Made in Napa Valley and garlic salt)
    • Four slices 2% Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Provolone, or cheese of your choice

    For the burger fixings:

    • 12 Butter lettuce leaves, whole, washed
    • One large avocado, sliced into 8 wedges
    • Sliced red onion
    • Sliced tomatoes
    • Pickle spears

    lo-carb fries, zucchini fries, vegetables

    For the zucchini fries:

    • 2 medium-sized zucchini, cut into thirds and wedged
    • ½ cup ground almond meal (or ½ cup finely ground parmesan cheese)
    • 2 egg whites, slightly beaten
    • 1 T. Italian or herb seasoning
    • Salt and pepper

    Assembly:

    1. Prepare the burger patties by mixing the seasoning into the meat and forming four patties.  Turn the grill on or pre-heat the oven. You can also grill in a cast iron skillet.
    2. For the zucchini.  Mix the dry seasoning together and put in a bowl.  Dip the zucchini wedges in the egg whites, then into the seasoning.  Place seasoned zucchini on a baking tray and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes or so until the outside is browned.
    3. While zucchini is baking, cook the burger patties to your liking, about 5 minutes on each side.   Add the cheese slices as soon as you take the patties off the grill.
    4. Prepare individual plates with 3 lettuce leaves on each.  Place cooked patties on top of lettuce leaves and top each patty with a red onion and tomato slice.  Garnish the plate with a pickle and avocado.  We like to add a dollop of mayo and mustard to our burger.
    5. Wrap the lettuce around the burger and take a delicious bite with napkins close by because it will get all over!
