Now back to the burger recipe at hand! To make this cheesy Pizza Burger, get started by preparing your Nutrisystem Hamburger according to the package’s directions. While it’s cooking, place one egg white in a small bowl and two tablespoons of breadcrumbs in another bowl. Bread the hamburger patty by dipping it into the egg white and then in the breadcrumbs. Next, heat one teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the breaded burger and cook for two minutes on each side. When the burger becomes golden, top it with two tablespoons of low sodium marinara sauce and two tablespoons of part skim shredded mozzarella cheese. Cover the burger and continue cooking until the cheese has fully melted. Place the burger onto the bun and enjoy!
