California Burgers

I didn't have any ground meat, so I used Boca Soy Burgers. It lowered the calories a lot and tasted great. The original recipe calls for ground beef or ground turkey.


  • 1lb Extra Lean ground beef (I used Boca Soy Patties)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • 3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 ounces fat free feta cheese, crumbled
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 2 small firm, ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 leaves iceberg lettuce
  • 1 just-ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced (I omitted this)
  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a bowl and shape into 4 patties (I didn't do this, since I had the Boca Burgers)
  2. Grill the patties or use a forman grill, several minutes until desired "done-ness" is reached.
  3. Assemble burgers with the feta, tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, and onion (optional).
