Swiss Mushroom Bun-less Burger | WLS Recipes


Bun-less Mushroom Swiss Burger | Postop Bypass and Sleeve Recipe


When I think through my “quick and easy” weeknight meals, I often overlook burgers. But I really should stop that!

For whatever reason, I think of burgers as time consuming. While they can be (especially ones that have lots of chopped veggies inside the patty…) a basic burger patty with a variation of toppings can actually be a super quick meal.

It’s an AWESOME post-op recipes because you can divide the portions to small patties. You can also change up the flavors so you don’t get tired of leftovers! It also doesn’t hurt that it’s PACKED WITH PROTEIN and a super filling one at that.

But hey!! Take those tiny bites and eat slowly to tolerate the density in this lean ground beef. Your pouch with thank you :)
