READY IN: 14mins
Recipe by KateL

Entered for safe-keeping. From JoAnna M Lund's "Hot Off the Grill: The Healthy Exchanges Electric Grilling Cookbook", received in February 2009 Cookbook Swap. Perfect for your G Foreman grill. A mild spicy heat combined with sweetness; add Emeril's Essence or a few drops of Tabasco sauce for more zing. Please read reviews for insight on amount of Splenda and adjust to your own preference; a little bit of Splenda goes a long way. (I double-checked the source, and I typed the ingredient amount accurately.)

The patties are great. Great flavors. But the sauce, it's way too sweet. And I used only 1 1/2 tbs of Splenda. I should have omitted it. I used only 1/4 cup of green bell pepper cause I though it would be too much with 1 1/4 cups. And now I see that I forgot to add the breadcrumbs LOL The patties have a nice sweet taste probably because of the ketchup. Thanks Kate :)
