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!

This definitely sounds more like convenience food than healthy food, and this honestly tastes like it would be really gross & artificial tasting. Processed cheese? White bread? Miracle Whip? Eew.

I was hoping this would be a recipe for making an amazing tasty burger from scratch? The switch to boca is nice but it is more challenging to make a burger from scratch that is low in calories, nutritious, & tasty. I agree with bread & cheese comments as well - these are not fresh nor the most nutritious options. Calories are not everything when eating a balanced diet.

I love the idea of a lighter burger....but when she uses Kraft "cheese" and Wonder bread, I have to question her taste and the quality of products. I think there is a healthier and tastier way to get a lower calorie burger.

I use whole wheat bread, no cheese, and no mayo, but all-natural ketchup and honey mustard. So my version is about 150 calories. (I side it with a couple of servings of frozen veggies which would be 60-100 calories.) Not only is it healthier than this version, but cheaper, too.
