Celebrity Chef Offers Healthy Burger Ideas and a Barbeque Menu Makeover
Ryan Scott, Celebrity Chef
Love that classic burger flavor, but want to try something a bit better-for-you? As you fire up the grill this Memorial Day, you might be asking yourself what options you have while entertaining. Those hearty meaty patties, grilled to perfection, a staple of most of our summer soirees, are simply a slice of Americana. Now, you can have your burger and eat it too, by making a few simple swaps.
The typical hamburger can be upwards of 250 calories with more than nine grams of fat, and thats before you slap on the cheese, place it on a bun, add ketchup, fried onions, chili, or whatever else strikes your fancy. But according to former Top Chef contestant Ryan Scott, you dont have to let these facts and figures turn the lights out on your Memorial Day barbeque dreams.
Ryan will offer a remake on the typical barbeque menu with suggestions for making the all-important burger better-for-you. Hell offer alternatives for side dishes and main dishes while making sure you dont miss that bold, burger taste this Memorial Day. Ryans BBQ remake menu will strike the balance between full-flavor and better-for-you.
