I just found a web-site (is listed on side of blog) from All-bran that takes everyday recipes and adds more fibre to them. I am always looking for ways to add more fibre to my diet and my families diet (need to fill up all those teenage boys!!) So I clicking around on the web-site and came across a burger recipes. Any type of burger is a huge hit in my family so I decided to try the recipes. They were super great!!! You could not even taste the fibre in it!
***For those of you who count points on Weight Watchers, this could be a great way to lower your points (more fibre = less points right?).
I just couldn't resist...I have attached the recipe I used below, but if you want more recipes (there are tons!) then just click on the the All-bran link on the side of the page!
1 lb Ground beef
1 cup All-bran original cereal
¼ Cup chopped onion
2 tbsp Ketchup
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp EACH Salt, Pepper and Garlic
Combine all ingredients and shape into four patties. BBQ with your favourite sauce.
Enjoy, knowing that each burger contains 6.2 g of fibre!!! Who doesn't love that!
