|Homemade Quarter Pounder|
Back in the day, before CHF, my husband enjoyed getting McDonald's Quarter Pounders with Cheese. The funny thing is that even though he enjoyed eating them, they never really satisfied him. They just didn’t seem to have any staying power. He got hungry again very quickly. Plus, each burger contained 730 mg sodium. Add a regular order of French fries, and you’re eating a salt bomb.
A couple of months ago, I tried my hand at creating the Quarter Pounder experience at home. I wanted to duplicate the taste, or at least come close. But I also wanted to make it healthier and low sodium. It’s a simple sandwich: just a hamburger patty, with 2 slices of processed American cheese, some dill pickle chips, a couple of squirts of ketchup and mustard, topped off with a sprinkle of diced onion.
