Your question was: Favorite way to use Nutrisystem Beef Patty?.
Tacos sounds great! I like to just use a whole wheat 100 calorie bun w/ fat free cheese and vegetables on it! It's wonderful! You could also try it as a taco salad. Burger is my favorite!..
I guess I'm boring because I simply eat it as is. I add a slice of low-fat provolone and a little mustard. On days where I have few extra calories to spare I will toast a whole grain english muffin and serve it on that...
You are supposed to add a bun anyway per the instructions on the box. That way you don't have to worry about if you have extra calories to spare. Otherwise, your dinner wouldn't have any carbs in it...
I love the burger! I've eaten it as-is on a sandwich thin with FF cheese, pickles, lettuce, and ketchup/mustard. Or on a toasted thin spread with some LF Alouette garlic/herb cream cheese, a pile of sauted mushrooms, lettuce, and slice of LF provolone (if anyone knows of a LF/FF swiss, please holler!). Or stuffed into half a whole-grain pita. Or wrapped in a LC tortilla. Or crumbled into a mess of sauted mushrooms over some brown rice. Or as a cheesy patty melt using a thin and butter-flavored Pam.
Yeah, I've learned to love my burger LOL. Sometimes I just use boiling water to prepare, but sometimes (depending on how I'm eating it) I will heat up chicken broth instead, or add a drizzle of worchestershire sauce to the water. I wait until everything else is ready to assemble before rehydrating the burger, and add just enough hot liquid to get the whole thing wet (without filling the tray to the brim or letting it soak too long). Then I turn it out onto a napkin, then turn the napkin onto my sandwich. I find this is the best way to keep it from falling apart on me during the assembly process. Then consume immediately while still hot. YUMMO!..
I just had one for dinner. I prepared it as the directions said, then put it on the bbq for a few min. I grilled some onions and eggplant also( I found an amazing reciepe for the eggplant that used lemon juice, red wine vinegar, pepper, and crushed red peppers) I stacked it all up on the whole wheat bun with a bit of catsup, lettuce, and tomato. so good...
I've had it prepared as per directions then put red beans, salsa and ff sour cream on top - it was really satisfying. Also have used it as a hamburger with the sandwich thins...
I dreaded eating the hamburger for 2 months. I just left it there in the box. Then after reading rave reviews on here about it I tried it. It turned out to be one of my favorites. I added 8 to my order..
You can make it to taste like a whopper (a little ketchup, lettuce and tomato) or a big mac (onion, lettuce and a teaspoon of light Thousand Island Dressing) or make it into tacos like the poster above said..
One I've yet to try, but sounds delish! I lifted it off the recipe section a few months ago. Sorry, I don't recall the original poster. I copied and pasted it into a word document..

Have you seen the new Big Mac Wraps? The real ones are around 300 cals and not so good for you. I made my own version tonight.
I have a recipe for "Make your own damn big mac sauce" (that's the real name!) from the internet that I use for the fat serving. You can search for it (I added the link to it below) if you want or use low fat thousand island dressing in a pinch.
1 flamebroiled beef patty.
1 whole wheat wrap.
1 tsp big mac sauce http://www.grouprecipes.com/23322/ma...mac-sauce.html.
Dehydrated onion flakes.
Low fat american or cheddar cheese slice.
I made the flamebroiled patty but I added a dash of worcheshire to the water and about a tablespoon of dehydrated onion flakes to it before boiling it. I sprinkled a little onion powder and black pepper on the patty. I dry mine out some in a skillet too. Anyway, while it is heating/drying in the skillet add a piece of lowfat cheese. Cut it in two pieces and put the rehydrated onion from the water you boiled on the meat.
I used a multi grain La tortilla Factory wrap 100 cals. You can use whatever you want..
Put the 2 pieces of meat w/cheese and onions on the wrap, add some sauce, and some shredded lettuce and pickles if you want (I always took them off mine on the real thing) Wrap it up and enjoy!.
You might want to nuke the wrap for about 15 seconds to soften it up.
Anyway, I won't lie, I tried the real thing the other day and mine was much better and much better for you! The sauce recipe I found a few years ago is so close it is hard to tell that it didn't come from there. It has miracle whip, hellman's mayo and wishbone creamy french dressing as main ingredients so I treat it like a serving of mayo for the fat..
McDonald's wrap is white flour and not good for you if they had used a low fat whole grain it would have been better, not great but healthier!.
One other thing, I have always added some ketchup to my big macs so I did add that to mine as well, I know it is a weird habit but it makes a big mac even better!.
Thanks, all of you. My mouth is literally watering. Guess what's for dinner tomorrow!!..
My favorite is a patty melt! I make the burger per box directions. I saute some onion until it is close to caramalized. I use 2 slices of multigrain bread that is 45 calories per slice. Spray a pan with non stick spray, (I use canola or olive oil spray), spray one side of each slice of bread with spray, use 2 slices of fat free cheese (Kraft is 25 calories per slice so I save a protein from the day). I then put it all togetherbread, cheese, onions, meat, cheese, bread and grill on each side until brown and crispy and the cheese is melted. Sometimes I will add jalapenos to the onions when I saute them if I want a little more "kick". Yummmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..
Omg, that sounds awesome. I'm gunna try it!.
Btw, What kind multi-grain bread is 45 calories per slice?..
