Make Your Favourite Junk Food At Home
May 28, 2014

If you are addicted to burgers and fries and just can’t let go, try making the same food on your own. Home cooked food is a lot healthier than what you get at fast food chains. It is also a whole lot lower in fat and contains no dangerous preservatives.

Here’s an easy burger recipe to get you started. It serves 4 people

1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped basil, plus 4 large, whole basil leaves
1 teaspoon lemon juice
16 ounces ground chicken
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 tablespoons part-skim ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
4 hamburger buns
1 tomato, sliced

Stir together mayonnaise, 1/2 tablespoon parsley, 1/2 tablespoon chopped basil and lemon juice in a small bowl; set aside
Heat a gas grill to medium-high or prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals.
In a large bowl, stir together remaining 1/2 tablespoon each parsley and basil, chicken, onion, ricotta and bread crumbs until combined. Form into four 4-inch patties. Grill for 6 minutes per side or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer.
Remove burgers from grill and place on buns. Top with a basil leaf, a slice of tomato and 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture
