Quick & Easy Dinners

Pre-formed burger patties come in many styles. Some are fresh, some frozen. They range from vegan to wild game meats.  Bonus to using burgers: convenient, tasty, quick & easy dinner options.  Just keep an eye on sodium and fat (you do want this burger to be tasty and healthy). 

Here is a sample weeks’ worth of burger-based quick & easy (and healthy!) dinners:

Note there are starchy side suggestions, for enjoying your burgers and bun.  Feel free to swap the starch for fruit and enjoy the burger on a whole grain bun instead!
