BURGERS WITH CREAMY BBQ SAUCE
1 tablespoon low carb barbecue sauce *
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
Pinch granular Splenda, optional
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 small onion, about 1 1/2 ounces
4 ounce ground beef patty
1 ounce cheddar cheese, sliced
Blend the barbecue sauce, mayonnaise and a little Splenda, to taste; set aside. Sauté the onion in butter in a small skillet until lightly browned; keep warm. Meanwhile grill the hamburger patty, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper; place on a heat-proof plate or baking sheet. Top with the onion and cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted. Top with the sauce to serve.

This is a very tasty combination and I especially liked the sauce. The original recipe said to use 2 tablespoons of sauce per serving. Although that would taste good it's a little excessive for one burger. I've given the counts for both ways. The serving in the photo has 1 tablespoon of sauce on it. Most of the carbs are coming from the onion - about 3 net carbs. Since there really aren't a lot of them, the only way to cut back would be to leave them out, but they do add a nice flavor.
Please note that while I've given this the "ok" for induction, because all the ingredients are allowed, I think it's a bit carby for a dish with very little vegetable in it. I suggest that the onion either be omitted or only use a dab for flavor if you're on induction.
