Spinach and asiago beef burgers

January 11, 2015

Everybody loves a good burger! And it doesn’t have to be summer to fire up your grill and cook these gems up. I wanted to try and add a little greens to them (if you know me, you know my relationship with greens is complicated 😉 ). These burgers were full of flavor and came in at only 5 smart points each.

    How would you do this without using a grill? Would it change the sp?

      You can pan fry them and no it would not change the points as long as you don’t use oil, maybe a little cooking spray on the pan

    Hey! I just put these in the recipe builder using ground turkey instead and got 7sp each :-/ Any idea where the difference is coming from?

      Hi, I never use the recipe builder on WW App I have proved it wrong way too many times, also I have noticed depending on what kind of ground turkey you use it’s actually more [points than extra lean ground beef.. Plus the asiago cheese could vary based on brand, same with cottage cheese.. I use My fitness pal to determine the nutritional info and then input that into WW calculator, i always tell people it’s your call which you want to use. All I can do it tell you how I get my point value..

    Does the 5pp include the 2pp flat out bread?

    Can these be frozen? Also how do you reheat after grilling them?

      Yes you can definitely freeze them, I’d dethaw and then either pop in oven or reheat in a frying pan, air fryer would work as well
