Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.

No dinnertime blues with burgers that deliver all the flavor you’d anticipate, as well as the fiber you might not expect.

You can use lean ground turkey instead of extra-lean ground beef. Be sure to cook until thermometer inserted in center of turkey patties reads 165°F.

Look for the blue cheese in small plastic containers in the refrigerated cheese area of the grocery store or with the deli cheeses.

Make these burgers "saucy" by serving with reduced-fat or fat-free blue cheese dressing.

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In large bowl, mix oats and water. Stir in beef, blue cheese, chives, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper sauce, pepper, mustard and salt until well mixed. Shape mixture into 12 patties, about 3/4 inch thick.
  • 2 Place patties on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals. Cover grill; cook 11 to 13 minutes, turning once, until thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F.
  • 3 For each burger, layer lettuce, tomato and patty in bun.

No dinnertime blues with burgers that deliver all the flavor you’d anticipate, as well as the fiber you might not expect.
