Bake Your Burger
If you are looking to save calories and fat, baking a burger is the best option. When you cook meat on the pan, you have to use oil or butter in the process, but when you pop a burger in the oven, you’re skipping that step. All you have to do is make the patty like you normally would, and then bake it at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. A pan-fried burger typically has 440 calories and 41 grams of fat, while this skinny version has half the calories and a 1/3 of the fat!
