We are coming up on the I have a fun...easy.....and HEALTHY recipe that the whole family will enjoy.....


1 lb 96% lean ground beef (or turkey)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 oz low-fat mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced or shredded
1/2 cup low fat, lower-sodium, low-sugar marinara sauce
4 whole grain or whole wheat hamburger buns, split

Preheat a grill (or George Foreman) to medium heat,

In a large bowl, mis the beef, oregano, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and sald until well combined. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape into balls, packing them tightly as you do. Press each into a patty that is about 1/2" larger than the diameter of the buns.

Grill the burgers for about 2 minutes per side (medium rare) or until desired doneness (do not smash the burger with a spatuala). About 1 minute before they are done...divide the cheese slices among the tops and melt.

Meanwhile, spoon the sauce into a medium microwave-safe bowl (preferably glass). Microwace on low until hot (30 - 60 seconds). Place the bun halves, cut sides down, on a upper grill rack or away from direct flame for about 20 seconds, or until toasted...
Place each bun bottom on a serving plate, toasted side up. Place the patties, cheese side up, on top of the bun bottoms. Spread 2 tablespoons sauce on each bun top, flip atop the patties, and serve..... (makes 4 servings)
