Bacon Cheeseburger Skillet

I love messing around with recipes to make them healthier while keeping the tastiness. Here’s one of my favorites. It’s so simple, and so yummy. Give it a try and let me know what you think about it!


1 lb lean ground beef (or turkey, or chicken)
– 4 slices UNCURED bacon, coarsely chopped
– 2 tsp Dijon mustard
– 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
– 1 tsp garlic powder
– 1/2-3/4 cup red onion, finely diced
– 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained
– 1 head bibb lettuce
– 3/4-1 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese, shredded
– Himalayan sea salt & fresh cracked pepper, to taste


In a 12″ skillet, cook bacon until done to your satisfaction.
Remove and dice the bacon into small pieces.
Add meat to skillet. Brown meat, breaking it up as it browns.
When meat is browned, add everything else except bacon & cheese. Mix well.
Cover and let simmer on low for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Sprinkle cheese, then crumbled bacon over meat mixture, cover until melted.
Serve with bibb lettuce leaves (best choice for dinner) OR 1 small (6 in) whole grain pita.*
Serves 4.
Serving size is 1/4 of skillet.
