It's almost Memorial Day Weekend and the living is easy! Well, ALMOST. You may find it to be more difficult to eat healthy at all of the cookouts and outdoor parties that will be taking place this weekend. When most people think of a cookout, they have dreams of hot dogs, hamburgers, creamy potato salad, and chips — all foods that can wreak havoc on your waistline.
Get ready to adjust your Memorial Day Weekend shopping lists! This healthy and delicious summer recipe is brought to you by Medifast's new Simply Well™: An Everyday, Healthy Cookbook.
Preheat broiler on low. Remove stems, and gently scrape out the gills from the underside of the mushroom cap and discard. Rub olive oil onto mushrooms and place on a baking sheet. Broil until tender, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook beef with onion, pepper, and garlic in a large skillet until brown over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, add tomatoes and spices, and simmer for 10 minutes.
Divide the mixture into four portions, and then scoop one portion into each mushroom cap (serve any excess filling alongside the mushroom). Sprinkle one ounce of cheese on top of each mushroom.
