Number of Servings: 1


    1 green pepper
    4 tsp minced garlic
    ground black pepper, to taste
    1 medium yellow onion
    2 tbsp light whipped salad dressing
    1 slice low-fat cheddar cheese
    1 slice low-fat American cheese
    2 whole wheat hamburger buns
    1/4 cup sliced button mushrooms


Cut the green pepper and onion into thick chunks, discarding the seeds, peel, and undesirable flesh.
Spray a pan with cooking spray and heat on medium-low.
Add the green pepper, onion, and minced garlic. Sprinkle generously with ground black pepper, stir vegetables, and cover.
Alternate between stirring, leaving covered, and spraying vegetables with cooking spray, when needed.
When the green peppers and onions are almost done cooking, add the button mushrooms and stir.
Continue cooking for a few minutes.
Cut both the American cheese and the cheddar cheese into quarters and spread out on top of vegetables and lower heat.
While cheese is melting, spread the salad dressing on the whole wheat hamburger buns.
After cheese is completely melted, top the buns and serve.

    Portebello mushrooms are a better choice because they are meatier in texture and flavor. - 3/8/10

    I would use EVOO instead of spray. I like the portabello mushroom instead of bun suggestion. Also, I'd add extra veggies like yellow and red bell pepper and celery. You're not really adding calorie, but you're adding crunch and flavor, not to mention health with the good stuff in veggies. - 11/28/08

    I agree with the last post. Sharing recipes is a community-minded gift. If you have a problem with a recipe, health-related or otherwise, just modify it or don't make it at all. Why attack someone who's sharing an idea? - 8/7/08

    I'm confused. This is just a regular sandwich with no meat. I would try it using seitan for the steak. That way it would have protein & substance. I would also use skim mozzarella for the cheese that's what's on this type of sandwich. It sounds like a big mac with no patty, which what's the point? - 8/7/08
