Healthy Hamburger Bowls
When you’re craving a burger, but trying to be good, whip up some tasty Healthy Hamburger Bowls! They’re so simple and take just 30 minutes to construct!
This meal is not only incredibly tasty, but it’s also so easy for a variety of reasons. It only takes 30 minutes to make, it requires simple ingredients you probably have on-hand and you need just one pan for cooking.
It all starts with one large russet potato. This family-favorite vegetable is not just good but good for you. With just 110 calories, one medium, skin-on potato provides 45% of your daily value of vitamin C and more potassium than a banana. Wowsers! 😱 There are hundreds of innovative and healthy ways and reasons to make potatoes part of your dinner.
I personally think russet potatoes are underrated, when you think of how convenient they are and the huge variety of methods they can be cooked and cut to make meals extra awesome. They are somewhat of a culinary canvas with unlimited possibilities. From cubed and roasted, sliced and grilled or even pan-fried potatoes can jazz up any meal.
I’m such a fan of shoestring fries, so for this bowl, I used a spiralizer to turn the potato into a pile of shoestring-like fries, but much healthier. If you don’t happen to own a spiralizer, just chop up that baby and this meal will be equally delicious. Maybe not quite as fun, but definitely delicious!
This recipe is super versatile! Add any other favorite burger ingredients. Avocado slices or guacamole, cheese and/or bacon. Oh… why didn’t I think of bacon before I made this…
As for the dressing, it’s pretty great, but you could also use any favorite dressing. Hummus or guacamole would be an amazing touch too! And, my go-to creamy dill Sriracha sauce sauce is magic. You really can’t go wrong.
There you have it – a lower carb, healthier way to get your burger fix on!
I’m pretty much in love with these burger bowls. They’re:

When you're craving a burger, but trying to be good, whip up this healthy hamburger bowl!
- 1 russet potato, spiraled (alternatively, potato can be chopped)
- 3/4 teaspoon paprika (divided)
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 1 minced garlic clove
- 1 lb lean ground turkey, chicken, bison or beef
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- salt and pepper
- 2.5 cups shredded romaine lettuce
- 1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
- 4 dill or butter pickles, thinly sliced
- For the dressing:
- 2 tablespoons nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons mayo
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt and pepper
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray (or add olive oil to skillet) and heat over medium-high heat. Add the spiraled potato and season with 1/4 tsp. paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook until soft and browned, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
- Into the same large skillet, add more cooking spray or olive oil; cook garlic and onion for about 3 minutes or until tender.
Add ground meat; break up with wooden spoon or spatula and add Worcestershire sauce. Then season with 1/2 tsp. paprika, and salt and pepper. Stir frequently and cook until browned and no pink remains, about 5-10 minutes.
- While meat is cooking, prepare dressing. Add all ingredients to a bowl or jar and whisk to combine. Taste and add salt, if needed.
Prepare the bowls by dividing potato noodles, hamburger meat and lettuce into four bowls. Top with tomatoes, pickles and dressing. Enjoy!
