When you make them from scratch, hamburgers can be guaranteed low fat with as many delicious toppings as you dare to prepare. I grate the onion so no one knows it's there. Serve on whole-wheat buns.
500 g lean ground beef
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cooking onion, grated
2 tbsp soy sauce
freshly ground black pepper
In a large bowl, combine beef, egg, wheat germ, onion, soy sauce and pepper. Mix well with your hands and form patties. Spray a non-stick frying pan lightly with cooking oil and heat to medium high (or heat up the grill). Cook patties 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until no longer pink inside. (Due to E. coli, it's not safe to serve hamburgers rare. Cook fully.)
