It’s baked, it’s extra lean ground beef, it has sesame seeds and is delicious…

I baked these extra lean ground beef patties last weekend, served them with salad and pesto mayonnaise dipping (recipe coming soon). I will be mostly seen least enthusiastic about cooking during day time that too on a weekend. I will be a couch potato either watching TV or browsing the internet or reading something or chatting with friends/family. My hungry man would make a few requests at first, then he would get a little intense, that’s when I consider ungluing myself from the couch and make a move to the kitchen. I’ll step into the kitchen with my mind full of this thought  “How to make a yummy lunch without much effort?”

So, for last Saturday’s lunch I made these ground beef patties or cutlets. All I did was mixing up the ground beef along with some seasonings, rolled it into small balls, placed them on the baking sheet and put it into the oven. After that I resumed gluing to the couch. Seeing me sitting relaxed, my man thought that I had zero intention to make lunch and he almost got ready to go out for lunch. I stopped him and said “you’ll be enjoying a delicious lunch soon”. The baked ground beef patties came out perfect out of the oven, I served them with salad and pesto mayo dipping. My man felt glad that he didn’t go out for lunch and I was glad that I’d made a yummy lunch without much effort.

Make it healthy: Use extra lean ground beef, bake it and serve with lots of greens/salad.
