Low-Fat Slop Burger

This can be a little messy but oh so good.   I use lean ground beef and light whole wheat buns.  If you don't like all the condiments on it, just delete what you don't like.   I love that this is such a quick meal.  This burger is around 365 calories, that is with the bun & cheese.  I find it's filling enough that I don't need anything to go along with it.  But if I did, it would be oven fries.

(serves 4)

*1/2 pound lean ground beef
*1 egg white
*1/4 cup finely chopped onion
*1/4 cup finely chopped mushrooms
