Review By the Mullens:
My husband and I started a calorie counting diet, so when I saw Gretchen’s post yesterday on turkey guacamole burgers I thought, “Why not?” I have never had a turkey burger, so I was not sure what to expect. I followed the recipe as Gretchen outlined. My husband helped me enter the recipe in our myfitnesspal app. He even made labels for me to post on our blog. 🙂 See below. This meal was ONLY 458 calories!!!
My review: AWESOME! I loved the flavor of the onion soup mix and the burgers were very moist. I have never tried the sandwich thins. These are going to be a new staple in my diet! My favorite part of dinner was the sweet potatoes and apples. This only had 60 calories, but I had to stop myself with one serving to stay in my calorie budget for the day. I would have eaten the whole batch if I could!
My husband’s review: His first comment was that it looked like something you would get at a restaurant, which is something that is NEVER said about my cooking. He actually went back for seconds! He gets more calories per day than me. 🙁
My kids: Baby boy LOVED it, but then again he will eat anything! Sister, on the other hand, wanted nothing to do with it, but who am I kidding? She is Little Miss Picky Eater. It is hit or miss with her.
I would definitely do this meal again! Thanks, Gretchen, for this recipe!
Well, because of a last-minute errand late this afternoon, I was not able to fix the sweet potatoes and apples, but I did still make the burgers (they are a lot quicker to make). We had a spinach salad with them, and it was more than enough to fill us up. My kids do eat the turkey burgers, but I put cheese and ketchup on them instead and skip the onions. My younger dd likes to dip her burger in the guacamole though. I decided to skip bun tonight. If you are really trying to watch your calories or carbs then that will help. I happen to just like it without the bun sometimes! This meal is a staple on our menu, I hope you like it too! Below you can see the variety of ways I served it tonight.
