Sloppy Bachelor Burger

Now that the weather is finally getting warmer, it's a great time to hit the BBQ outside for some of your favourite grilled summer foods and what is summer food without a wholesome hamburger. I do enjoy my burgers on the grill and for some reason they always seem to taste so much better when the weather is warm outside. Those of you that can't BBQ because you dont own a BBQ or live in an apartment complex, no need to worry because the sloppy bachelor burger will get your taste buds jumping in the summer fun.

In a different take from an old favourite the sloppy joes burger, I make sure to get my hands dirty to come up with a tasty option that is a low calorie burger which you can add just about any form of ingredient that your heart desires. I like to use a whole wheat kaiser bun and make sure to add a tonne of spices to the ground beef, I use medium ground beef but you can go lean for even less calories. Once complete make sure to top the burger with all your favourite condiments and give it that wow factor.
