Recipe - Chris' Spicy Cheeseburger Rollups

Last night I used the last of the Chris-squared (the new name my son came up with) hot sauce he and I made last Friday by making spicy cheeseburger roll ups. For those wishing to try this recipe the link the post with the sauce recipe, which will open in a new window, can be found here.

Ingredients:
1/8 teaspoon Red Monkey Spice Rub Cajun Spice
1/8 teaspoon Red Monkey Spice Rub BBQ Spice
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 pound 92% Lean ground beef
1/2 cup finely diced onions
1/8 to 1/4 cup Chris Squared Hot Sauce
2 Original Light FlatOut flat bread roll ups
2 slices fat free Kraft Cheddar processed cheese
non-stick oil spray
1 cup shredded lettuce
6 slices vine ripened tomato
4 slices Clausen Hearty Garlic Dills
Your choice of condiments (mine are listed below)

Preparation:
In a bowl combine first 6 ingredients; chill for 30 minutes. After 20 minutes preheat your grilling surface to 550 degrees (I used a propane grill)

On each of the two flat beads place 1/2 cup shredded lettuce, 3 slices tomato, 2 slices garlic dills, 1 tablespoon fat-free Miracle Whip, 1 teaspoon mustard, 1 teaspoon low-carb ketchup.

Remove the meat mixture from the fridge shaping it into one burger sized to one inch wider than the width of the flat bread.

Spray one side of burger with non-stick spray. Grill covered (oiled side down) for 3 minutes and flip, cook for a minute. top with cheese and cook until cheese is melted. Remove burger and cut in half lengthwise and place a half burger on each flat bread. Enjoy!

This is typical of a main meal for me; it is a lot of food, yet has little calories, about 650 for the whole shebang! Compare that to a Whopper or a Quarter Pounder with cheese. It is also QUITE delicious and has protein, fiber, and is low in carbohydrates and fat.

Chris,

My first foray into the Red Monkey realm shall be our anniversary dinner tomorrow: Grilled New York strip steaks, sautéed mushrooms, and grilled asparagus.
