The High-Protein Burger That Ticks All The Nutritional Boxes

This low-fat twist on the classic burger certainly doesn't go wanting in the flavour department. For a start, the turkey mince is generously seasoned and mixed with finely chopped onion and garlic. Then, just to make sure it's utterly delicious, it is stuffed in the middle with Eatlean Protein cheese. It is then adorned with beautiful fresh salad and tangy gherkins. Lastly, it's dressed up with a blob of mayonnaise and a blob of BBQ sauce. Like we said: D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. Here's the rub - all that fantastic flavour comes in at just 238 calories and 7g of carbs. Plus, it contains a massive 41g of protein. Pretty cool right? 

As ever - the real magic here is being done by the Lo-Dough. Practically fat and carb-free and only 39 calories (actually more like 26 if you make the burger pocket), this bread alternative lets you make huge savings where normal bread would cost you.

Lo-Dough - The Versatile Low-Carb Bread Alternative

There are a number of ways to enjoy a burger using Lo-Dough. Here are a few of our favourites.

1. Mould your burger into a longer, 'torpedo' shape and have it rolled in a wrap with all the usual accompaniments.

2. Cut the two sides of your Lo-Dough off (remember to blitz to a crumb and keep in the freezer for other recipes - or mix in with your burger mince for an extra boost of fibre). Fold over with your burger and salad to create a pocket.

3. Cook your burger and place in the centre of your Lo-Dough, on top of some cheese. carefully fold in the Lo-Dough five or six times to create what we call the star fold, place into a sandwich press (or push down on a griddle) to 'set' the Lo-Dough into position.

Whichever way you make it, Lo-Dough burgers are the future - fewer carbs mean fewer calories and this can all be achieved without compromising on taste.
