Guilt Free Burgers & Sandwiches


IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT POINTS:

Note: With the exception of a few sandwiches (on French Hoagie Rolls)... NONE OF THESE RECIPES include the points for buns or bread. The reason for that is, I want to encourage you to use whatever low point bun, bread or wrap that you want. Use any bread that you want for your burger... and then simply add MY points onto your bread. My burger recipes are for the "FILLING" of your burger, what's between the buns. Using my Mushroom and Swiss burgers as an example: The 1st burger, on the Blue plan, is 3 points. That does NOT include your bun. So, if you choose to use a 3 point bun from your grocery store, add MY 3 points to the 3 points of your bun, and boom.... 6 point burger. If you want to use a 6 point, high calorie, store bought Pretzel bun.... then add my 3 points onto that pretzel bun and BOOM... 9 point burger. This way, you can easily figure the points for my burgers to whatever bread you feel like using.
