What a surprise! Burger and shoestring fries can make a healthful meal. Potatoes, including fries, provide fiber, potassium, and vitamin C, among other important nutrients, and today’s frozen fries are lower in fat and sodium than in the past. Use lean ground beef and skip the cheese to lower saturated fat. Load up on the veggies and lighten up on condiments, which can be sources of extra fat and sodium.


  • 1 lb lean ground beef (5% fat), thawed
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced thinly
  • 4 leaves red lettuce
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns
  • 8 tsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 4 cups frozen shoestring fries

Prep Time: 10min | Cook Time: 30min

  1. In a medium bowl, mix ground beef with seasonings; shape into patties.
  2. Grill or pan fry. (Use a food thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature of the burgers is 160 degrees.)
  3. Bake shoestring French fries according to package instructions.
