Blue Cheese Burger Recipe – 9 Points +

Blue Cheese Burger

Sometimes, you just gotta have a big, juicy, manly, hearty burger. Last week, I had one of those days. So I put together this Blue Cheese Burger Recipe that was seriously out of this world. Each burger came out to just 9 Points +, which wasn’t bad considering how big and satisfying it was. I probably could’ve used a sandwich thin, or some other low carb hamburger bun, and shaved off an extra Point or two, but this time, I needed something BIG and carb-y. So I went with a thick, hearty, whole grain hamburger bun from Udi’s. The meat was so juicy and flavorful, and the pungent blue cheese was the most perfect complement. The next time you need a burger that is so divine it feels NOTHING like diet, food, this Blue Cheese Burger is your ticket!

So now, for just a 7 point Total, I can indulge in this whole meal of meat, cheese and potatoes, and not feel an ounce of guilt. Though it’s definitely a slimmed down dish, the taste has not been compromised! This cheeseburger and fries meal is so incredibly yummy, you’ll never know it’s weight watchers friendly!
