Any of my friends and family who know me well would say I am not a very organized person. I think I am starting to prove them wrong. I try and plan my menus around what is going on in our lives and what is on sale, and what we already have in the fridge or freezer. Yesterday I found some hamburger in the freezer that needed to be used. I always buy the leanest ground beef I can find. I know what you are saying how can hamburger be low cal. That is what I thought also until I found this great recipe for Chevre Burgers in an old Betty Crocker Cookbook from 1969. Each bite is full of flavor from the cheese and the onion. Because we try not frying anything I also like the fact that these burgers were broiled in the oven. They would be great on the BBQ. Sure helped to warm the house up. This recipe made four burgers at 435 calories per serving. Chevre Burgers
1/2 cup crumbled chevre such as feta chabis, pyramide or log 4 ounces 1/4 cup sliced green onion 1 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
Mix cheese, onions, tarragon, salt and pepper. Shape ground beef into 8 patties, each about 3 inches in diameter. Top 4 of the patties with cheese mixture; top with remaining patties. Pinch edges together to seal securely.
Set oven control to broil and or 550. Broil with tops about 3 inches from heat until medium doneness. 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Served with Bearnaise Sauce.
