We lost our minds at Hungryland when we first laid eyes on these adorable snacks... and then lost 'em AGAIN when we tasted them!
Cook: 10 minutes
8 oz. raw extra-lean ground beef (4% fat or less)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
3 tbsp. whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs
2 tbsp. egg whites (about 1 large egg’s worth) or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
4 slices reduced-fat cheddar cheese
16 hamburger dill pickle chips
16 small pieces of lettuce
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
Optional dips/toppings: ketchup, yellow mustard, light Thousand Island dressing
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix beef, onion, breadcrumbs, egg whites/substitute, and seasonings.
Evenly form into 16 patties on the baking sheet. Bake for about 8 minutes, or until cooked to your preference.
Meanwhile, break each cheese slice into 4 squares.
Plate burger patties, and immediately top with cheese, pickle chips, lettuce, and tomato halves. Serve with toothpicks.

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected?
