HG Alternatives: Instead of the 70-calorie Boca burger, use any meatless patty with reasonable stats that you like. Can't find 80-calorie light hamburger buns? Try a 100-calorie flat sandwich bun, like an Arnold/Brownberry/Oroweat Sandwich Thin. Just adjust the calorie count accordingly!
Guess what, specialty burgers... We can rebuild you. Better, lighter, and lower in calories than you were before. So, fast-food chains, keep churning out these crazy burgers -- we'll keep whipping up guilt-free versions. No problem!
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1 oz. (about 2 tbsp.) mashed avocado
1 tsp. fat-free mayonnaise
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1 slice center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
1 Boca Original Vegan Veggie/Meatless Burger (or HG Alternative)
1 light hamburger bun with about 80 calories (or HG Alternative)
1 slice tomato
2 tbsp. shredded lettuce
In a small bowl, stir cheese wedge until smooth. Add avocado, mayo, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir until uniform.
Cook bacon until crispy, either in a skillet over medium heat or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave. (See package for cook time.) Break bacon in half.
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook burger patty for about 4 minutes per side, until cooked through.
Split bun into halves, and place patty on the bottom half. Top with cheese-avocado mixture, bacon halves, tomato, and lettuce. Add the top of the bun, and dig in!
