Need more fibre???

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!

All-Bran Burgers

1 lb Ground beef
1 cup All-bran original cereal
1 Egg
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!

  1. You seriously couldn't taste the bran?! I just might try those.

  2. You totally can not taste the bran...I added more spices to my burgers then what the recipe called for, but no one but me knew that I added extra fibre!! I was looking at some of the other recipes and lots look good!
