Grilling season is upon us, or if your like me you barbecue all year round.. and here in Canada it’s not always comfortable standing outside in -30c temperatures to cook lol.. but I love cooking my food on the BBQ and I love a good burger.. I wanted to create a simple stuffed burger and I had some pepperoni in the fridge that needed to be used up so the rest is history.. these pizza stuffed beef burgers are so tasty and filling.. I know sometimes when it comes to having your burger the bun is where everyone is not willing to sacrifice all those points.. Flatout foldit’s work perfect for burgers and the 5 grain and flax one that I use are only 2 smart points.. I love that with Flatout breads I can still keep a delicious burger on bread within my daily points. Check out Flatout’s store locator to find them near you! You can add in additional toppings to either the meat mixture or in your burgers when you stuff them, I kept it simple and just used pepperoni & cheese.. These stuffed burgers are only 4 smart points each, pop them on your flatout bread and you have a great meal for 6 smart points..
