Tips & Notes

Check ground beef labels for the lean (90%) to fat (10%) ratio. 93/7 ground beef is even leaner. You can also make your own whole wheat bread crumbs. Just pulse/process several pieces of whole wheat bread in a food processor until desired crumb texture is reached.


  1. I usually make this with blue cheese or gorgonzola cheese. I am thinking about using a brie cheese. How do you think that would work?

  2. We’ve never tested it that way but it should probably work! Let us know how it turns out if you try!
