Married me a farm boy. ‘What are we having for supper…’ loosely translates to ‘what can we make quickly and does it have meat in it?’ This fast food impersonator is simple, quick and filling – without the carb-heavy white buns and additives other burgers have in them. Great source of protein and energy.

Diabetes Type 2 Suggestions: I tend not to use fat free items in order to limit processed and added ingredients. Use homemade mayo (link here) for the benefits of good fats and proteins. Low sugar Ketchup is suggested and for additional benefits uses a darker green lettuce such as Romaine, Butter or Boston Lettuce to add vitamins into your meal.
