Exchanges
3 medium-fat meats; 1 starch; 2 fats

Side Suggestions: Mashed Potatoes
Cook 2 medium sized Yukon Gold potatoes as per the directions above. Leave potatoes sitting in the pot with a cover on, but drain out the water, until lamb burgers are just about ready (this will help preserve their heat). Then add 2 tablespoons low fat milk and 2 teaspoons butter to the potatoes and beat mixture with a fork or electric whisk until creamy. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and ground pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley. Nutrition Info (for ½ recipe): 189 calories; 34 g carbohydrates; 4 g protein; 4 g fat (2.5 g saturated); 5 g fiber; 312 mg sodium. Exchanges: 2 starches; 1 fat.
