Low Fat Deluxe Cheeseburger Recipe
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, fat skimmed off
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 pound well-trimmed top round, cut in large chunks
1/4 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup plain dried bread crumbs
1/4 cup prepared chili sauce, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup shredded swiss cheese
4 hamburger rolls, split
1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
4 thick slices tomato
In small saucepan, combine broth, onion and garlic.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook about 5 minutes, until the onion is very soft and all the liquid is absorbed.
Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, preheat broiler.
In a food processor, chop the beef until coarsely ground.
In medium bowl, combine the ground beef, turkey, bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons of the chili sauce and the pepper and reserved onion mixture.
Blend thoroughly and form into 4 patties.
Broil the burgers 3 to 4 inches from heat, turning once, for 8 minutes, or until cooked through.
Sprinkle Swiss cheese on top; broil an additional 30 seconds or until cheese is melted.
Broil the hamburger buns for 30 seconds to toast lightly.
Place the buns on 4 plates and top with lettuce, tomato and a burger.
Top the burgers with the remaining 2 tablespoons chili sauce and serve.
