Long ago, Mark and Walt introduced you the “The Ken’s Deluxe,” a burger from Mark’s past from the long-gone Pine Bar Restaurant in Wausau, Wisconin. Little did we know just how healthy one certain element of this culinary adventure was. The egg.
As a reminder, the “Ken’s Deluxe” was a quarter-pound burger with both American and Swiss Cheese; a quarter-inch thick slice of raw onion and a fried egg on top. And by far the best burger…EVER!
Well, adding a fried egg to any sandwich isn’t only delicious…there’s only 70-90 calories per egg; but most important there’s 6 grams of protein (12% of your daily need) which is great for building lean muscle. Protein rich foods also make you feel full longer, so adding a fried egg to a turkey sandwich for example would nearly DOUBLE your protein intake in one just one satisfying meal!
As with any food, moderation is key; but when in doubt don’t skip the egg! Good, and good for you and your everyday “Battle of The Buldge.”
