Eating lean doesn’t have to be mean. Enjoying low-fat meat will help me reach my fitness goals but I also want to keep my hungry men happy. So I went on a serious search for a hamburger to make at home that our whole family can enjoy together. I found this recipe at 101 Cooking for Two and couldn’t be more pleased. Here is our twist:
2 lb 95-96% lean burger
4 T rolled oats (Whirled in a coffee grinder used exclusively for grains and seeds.)
2+ t Montreal Steak Seasoning (Make your own or can be purchased in bulk at Costco.)
Mix the above in a bowl then form 8 patties. We use this Mr. Bar-B-Q Multi Layer Burger Press that I picked up on a whim at a kitchen outlet store. Grill the patties on high until done (about 2.5 minutes on each side.) And you know the rest; buns or lettuce wrap, tomato, cheese, onion, condiments, the works.
What are your favorite burgers? What are your favorite foods for fitness?
Happy Eating! ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc 🙂

I love using oats instead of bread crumbs as a binder for meat. I think it also holds the moisture well without keeping the grease. Looks awesome Angie!
Waving to you, Maggie! How have you been? I’ve been away from social media for a bit and missed ya 🙂 This really is a fab recipe and now I’m on a new mission; I need to find a reasonable price for such lean ground beef. I’m wondering if I can figure out a lean cut of beef to look for on sale and then have a butcher grind it. I’m not very well versed in such matters, lol. I’ll hop over to your blog in a bit to catch up ❤ Thanks for stopping by…and oh, the Montreal Steak Seasoning is worth the time to make and seems to give it "man" flavor to compensate for lack of fat 🙂
Sounds GREAT, Angie. 🙂 I’ll have to do without the oats though. Our ketogenic thing doesn’t allow grains in our diet.
Oh good, Dane! Without the oats I hope the burgers aren’t dry, or would you use a different ratio beef, like 80/20? My men think the Montreal Steak Seasoning is the bomb 🙂
