Reeni from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice enlightened me to Katie Lee's Award Winning Logan County Grilled Cheese Burgers. She has an awesome blog with some great recipes.
So Reeni of course chose this burger for her Burger Club to make, taste and rate.
We all loved this. I loved how the cheese and onions were the main attraction rather than the burger. Usually it's all about the burger but this was a nice change from the normal burger.
I did try to cut as many calories as possible. The calories aren't too bad considering it was ooey gooey buttery and cheesy!
4 of us ate these tonight and we all rated them a 4. We will for sure make them again.
Logan County Burgers
From The Comfort Table by Katie Lee
1 lb. ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1 large egg, lightly beaten (I'll use egg beaters next time to lower calories)
1 medium onion, half grated, the other half thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
12 slices wheat bread (I used Wonder Whole Wheat, 55 calories slice)
2 tbsp. butter (I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, light)
12 slices American cheese (I used 2%)
In a medium bowl, combine the beef, egg, grated onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix until combined. Form into 6 thin patties. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the burgers until done. Drain on paper towels. Clean skillet, place bread butter slice down. Top each with a slice of cheese, some onions and a burger. Top with another slice of cheese. Then place bread, butter side up. Cook until toasted, carefully flip sandwich and toast on the other side.
