Recipe of the Week: Mike’s Savory Burgers

Recipe of the Week: Mike’s Savory Burgers

A great hamburger is one of my favorite “quick, easy, and tasty” types of meals, and it doesn’t have to be laden with fat to be delicious.

This recipe, which is from my cookbook, The Shredded Chefis one I’ve been making for years now and never grow sick of. The mustard in the meat adds a nice touch of zest, but it’s the topping sauce that really makes it shine.

Enjoy!

Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, mix together the ketchup, mayo, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce.

Toast the buns by cutting in half and placing on the grill cut side down, for about 10 seconds. They should be light golden brown. Top each burger with pickles and sauce.

I'm Mike and I'm the creator of Muscle for Life and Legion Athletics, and I believe that EVERYONE can achieve the body of their dreams.

If you like what I have to say, sign up for my free newsletter and every week I'll send you awesome, science-based health and fitness tips, delicious "diet-friendly" recipes, motivational musings, and more.

OVER 100,000 PEOPLE HAVE USED MY COOKBOOK TO GET THE BODY THEY WANT EATING THE FOODS THEY LOVE. WILL YOU BE NEXT?

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.
