Need a straight-up cheeseburger, made with real beef, that doesn't come with half a day's worth of calories? This burger has everything you need -- cheese! veggies! pickles! -- on an extra-lean patty atop a slim sandwich bun. If you prefer yours with bacon, we've got that covered too.

Prefer a veggie-friendly burger? You got it! This is one of the most incredible meatless burger recipes in the HG arsenal. Because grilled pineapple makes everything better. And because teriyaki marinade is kind of magical. The only thing that should prevent you from making this recipe is a deep-seated fear of pineapple -- otherwise, get on it NOW.

If you haven't tried swapping portabella mushroom caps for burger patties yet, the time is NOW. Stack 'em up right with our sauce swap -- a dead ringer for the version by Mickey D's. And if you want to save carbs (and have a slightly easier time wrapping your face around this massive thing!), just leave off that center bun half.

  Unique Greek Turkey Burgers

1/4th of recipe (1 patty): 203 calories, 8g fat, 420mg sodium, 3g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g sugars, 29g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

This lean turkey's not only pumped up with spinach, it's also flavored with garlic, oregano, basil, and even feta cheese. (We love that, since feta tends to just roll off a burger when you put the crumbles on top of the patty.) These are great prepared on the grill or in a grill pan!

This recipe is vegetarian friendly AND safe for people with gluten sensitivities! (If gluten’s not an issue, feel free to use regular all-purpose flour in place of the gluten-free stuff.) Even if you're a meat-eating gluten lover, you'll flip for these flavor-packed patties!
