Boca Burger vs. Whopper Hamburgers

Stop at Burger King for lunch, or bring in your own burger? Hungry Girl compares the Whopper and the infamous Boca Burger.

Bite It: Boca Burger

When it comes to burgers, forget The King. After all, who needs HIM when you've got the Burger Queen (that would be HG, of course!) ready to hook you up with a diet-friendly recipe for BK's famous (and fatty) Whopper? This easy-to-throw-together meal tastes great, and has just a fraction of the fat and calories of the original. So ditch that stupid 760-calorie burger blunder, and try one of these instead:

Ingredients

  • Wonder Light (or other light) Hamburger Bun
  • Boca Burger Patty, Original Vegan
  • 1 slice Kraft Singles Fat-Free Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. Miracle Whip Light
  • 3 pickle slices
  • Tomato slice
  • Lettuce
  • Onion slice
  • 1 Tbsp. ketchup

Directions

Cook Boca Burger as per instructions on box. Toast bun (optional). Lay burger on the bun's bottom half, followed by the cheese, tomato, onion, and lettuce. On the top half, slap on the mayo, ketchup, and pickles. Put two halves together and enjoy!

Fight It: Burger King Whopper Hamburger

Thinking of caving in to your craving for a cheeseburger and ordering a Whopper at your local BK? Uhhh...just say no. Biting into one of these diet-disasters-on-a-bun would be a whopping mistake. Sure, you'd experience a few minutes of burger bliss, but those fleeting moments of enjoyment are so not worth the 47 insane grams of fat you'd be swallowing. Besides, HG's Whopper Stopper recipe can easily satisfy your burger urges (would those be "burges"?). If you do happen to find yourself at Burger King with a growling stomach and a pocket full of singles, order one of HG's BK picks.
