Enter this recipe for healthy cheeseburger.

You see, I’ve always known I needed to eat healthier but just couldn’t bring myself to give my cheeseburger up. It didn’t help that this recession happened, and freelance jobs became harder to come by. As the market snuffed one well-paying gig after the next, I found myself dicing my grocery bill by eating cheap and anything fastfood.

And so it was that this unfortunate situation came about – for every 80 points that the Dow drops, I gain a point in cholesterol count. Fortunately, I discovered how to make this healthful cheeseburger (not a myth, I swear), and I’m sharing it with you just in case you find yourself needing to do a gut-check.


  • 1 pound of white turkey meat (ground)
  • 1 tablespoon of Spike seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup of scallions
  • 1/2 cup of soy sauce
  • 4 slices of cheese (either low-fat or non-fat)
  • 1/2 cup of light mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons of ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon of relish


  • Mix the following in a large bowl: turkey meat, Worcestershire sauce, bread crumbs, scallions, and spike seasoning.
  • Form 4 patties out of the mixture.
  • Grease a large skillet and heat until hot.
  • Add patties and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Flip the patties over before adding soy sauce.
  • Cover the pan. Let it simmer until the patties are cooked throughout.
  • Remove the lid. Then, place a slice of cheese on each patty, and allow it to melt.
  • Combine the mayo with the relish and the ketchup.
  • Place them, and your patties, on oven-steamed buns. Serve with the condiment of your choice.

See? It’s easy, healthy, cheeesy, and yum.
