Hamburger Nests   

modified  from “Simply the Best” Weight Watchers cookbook

Though we don't eat very much meat, this recipe is a family favorite.  We especially enjoy the hamburger nests as snacks the next day. 

12 slices of bread (whole-wheat or white)
1 pound ground beef or beef/turkey mixture
1 finely chopped onion
3 T bread crumbs
1-2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 minced garlic cloves
¼ t. pepper
½ t. salt
add other seasonings to taste

½-1 cup barbecue sauce (I prefer home-made sauce)
½-1 cup shredded cheese

  • Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • Place 1 slice of bread into each muffin cup, pressing firmly to mold into the shape of the cup.
  • In medium bowl, combine meat, onion, bread crumbs, eggs, garlic, salt, pepper, spices
  • Spoon meat mixture evenly into bread-lined muffin cups
  • Top each with a dollop of barbecue sauce and a sprinkling of cheese.
  • Bake at 350 until the meat is cooked through and browned, about 25 minutes.
