Dads love grilling. Dads love burgers. Trouble is, good burgers don't always love Dad back.
That's because great burgers often start with fatty ground beef. Then of course there is the temptation to pile on toppings and condiments.
We decided to show our love this Father's Day by offering up a delicious burger that also happens to be healthy.
To keep our burger lean, we went with a 95 percent lean ground beef. You also could go for ground turkey, chicken or pork, but read the packages carefully; many ground meats aren't as lean as you might think they are.
Never miss a local story.
Since we removed most of the fat from our burger's meat, we needed to add moisture. We did this by incorporating vegetables. I know, groan! Vegetables don't belong in burgers.
This is a vegetable you would have put on the burger anyway -- caramelized onions. They add tons of flavor, moisture and virtually no calories.
