The Biggest Loser Season 8 recipes: Mediterranean Style Burger with Caper Yogurt Sauce and Portobello recipe
Posted Dec 08 2009 7:20am
This recipe from Chef Curtis Stone was featured on The Biggest Loser Season 8, episode 7 and I had not featured it on the site at the time, but thought it might be a great idea given the fact that I think it can be cut into tiny sizes and make for a delicious appetizer!
If you had not watched the show, Chef Curtis Stone showed participants how to make a bunless-burger.
Instead of using bread, Chef Curtis Stone used two large portobello mushrooms! The idea was great, but I don’t know if it would actually satisfy your craving for a good hamburger.
I think this recipe can become an incredible appetizer and I also thing that if you really want a hamburger a don’t want to overdo it in the bun department, I’d head to the healthy food store for some great whole wheat buns (that don’t contain bad fats or sugar) or I’d look for thin buns. I know that you can find more easily now buns for burgers that are half the size of conventional buns. Another solution to cutting back on the bread is to go French with you hamburger and have it as an open-face burger! You will have to eat your burger with a fork and knife, but you get to enjoy both the meat and the bread combination!
Here’s Chef Curtis Stone’s from The Biggest Loser Mediterranean Style Burger with Caper Yogurt Sauce and Portobello recipe:
8 portobello mushrooms, stemmed and cleaned 1 tablespoons olive oil
