Forget the buns! Serve food on a stick, it usually goes over well with kids and adults alike. This is a typical grilled hamburger, deconstructed and put on a stick. It has all of the traditional ingredients, including the pickle on top. I chose to use mustard as the flavor for the dipping sauce, but you could use sugar-free ketchup, Walden Farms brand BBQ sauce or ketchup, mayonnaise or even ranch dressing. The mustard dip makes a large portion, so if you’re not a “heavy dipper” I would recommend some fat to be served on the side in a way that you prefer.
A hamburger can not be served without a side dish! I made this broccoli slaw as a different twist on regular coleslaw. The broccoli is raw, but you could lightly steam it to make the broccoli more mellow. Additionally, if pomegranate seeds are not available, use a little shredded apple.
The entire meal pictured is a total of 427 calories and a 4:1 ratio. The broccoli slaw is a separate recipe from the hamburger and dip. They do not need to be served together.
