I will sub ground venison for the beef. Venison is much leaner than beef. Omit the sugar, salt and mushrooms. This sounds really good. Submitted by:

It is hard to believe that this is a Cooking Light recipe! Texas Toast? They are so tasty and full of fat that they are sinful! But the main idea of the recipe is good and can be adapted to ones needs without sacrificing taste. Submitted by:

I wouldn't use the sugar,not that much salt. I usually use lean ground chuck, or the round. I have a grill skillet, that I use, if I don't grill outside. I also put my onion in the microwave ,or on the grill. Makes great cheeseburgers, at home. Submitted by:

I make a variation of this for my fmaily. Extra extra lean ground beef, seasoned, sweet onions (no sugar, no salt added, sautee''d with worcestershire) I serve the burger sans bread, top it with horseradish, fat free cheddar, and the sautee'd onions. I serve it with steamed broccoli and wild rice. Submitted by:

I did the whole thing on the grill- using a cast iron frying pan-
I did use "Light" bread- and omitted the sugar- I also used low fat swiss cheese (trying lowfat pepper jack next time) - I'm feeding 5 people so I mix 1pd chuck w/ 1 pd grnd turkey- flavors still good but costs less and less fat-

When you compare this to a fast food burger of similar portion size, it is healthier and tastier too. I could fit this into my 1400 calories a day if I really wanted a beefy burger. Rather this than feel deprived and go for the fast food burger and fries. Submitted by:

I think I will try it and make some adjustments. Sounds good if you leave off the texas toast and sugar. Submitted by:

Yes, I left out the sugar and salt, added garlic and basil. I also made it with half turkey and half very lean beef and used toasted multigrain bread instead of the Texas Toast. Good change of pace and a nice treat. I didn't find it too time consuming at all. Submitted by:

For Heaven's sake, think, people! Leave out the sugar, salt, use ground turkey...whatever! Recipes are just ideas! They don't have to be slavishly followed! Sorry, my fatigue is showing. Submitted by:

Sounds good but I would make adjustments. No sugar, no Texas toast, use EXTRA LEAN beef or ground turkey breast meat. Submitted by:

When cooking onions I do not use sugar since onions have natural sugar in them. I alos add sliced bell peppers and minced garlic. I also do not us salt.

I have had this over both beef burgers and veggie burgers.
