For some inexplicable reason I have been craving a burger for the last week. Burgers are just not on my food desire radar normally, so why this craving has been hounding me I really don't know. Today I got it out of my system, well sort of. I made myself a huge burger using 150g of ex. lean ground beef and seasoning, I slow cooked 150g of red onion and a couple of garlic cloves for 20 minutes in a pan so they went golden and unctiously soft. When both the burger and onions were done I wrapped them in large little gem lettuce leaves (5 leaves) and added 2 griddled tomatoes, I thought I would feel majorly cheated tasteways by not using a bread bun - ohh no, it was heaven, a wonderful taste explosion in my mouth. The best thing was I was well and truly satisfied in mind and body for just 300kcals. It tasted so nice I am planning to make this a weekly meal, next weeks is to be pork and apple, the week after turkey and cranberry - the onions will feature as a mainstay as will the griddled tomatoes, simply because I love onions and also to give moisture as I don't like sauces on my burgers or hotdogs.
So that was a mahoosive burger for 300kcals and 2 of my '5 a day', thoroughly enjoyed. Unfortunately, I now have a serious burger addiction, lol.
Hope everyone is having a good week and a fab weekend. I have 2 more nightshifts to go before finishing around 11am on Monday for a much needed 10 day break from work. Roll on Monday ......🐰🐢......😊😊😊😊
