Burger and Fries - Low Sodium Makeover

Rob requested a burger and fries for dinner.  Being the dutiful wife that I am, I accommodated him with a lower sodium version of this American staple.

Ultra Thin Colby-Jack The patties were made from 75/25 ground steak combined with 1 Tablespoon of my new favorite seasoning, Mickey & T's Rib Rub.  It contains no sodium and no MSG.  I purchased mine through the Healthy Heart Market. 
I grilled the patties on our gas grill and added 1 slice Sargento Ultra Thin Colby Jack cheese.  They were served on a pita with miracle whip, no sodium B&G sweet relish, sliced tomatoes and oven fries.  

Oven Fries

1 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into strips
oil from a sprayer or Pam non-stick spray
no salt added seasoning of choice

Spray a cookie sheet liberally with oil or Pam non-stick spray.  Arrange the potato strips in a single layer making sure they don't touch.  Spray the exposed sides of the potatoes with oil or Pam non-stick spray and season to taste.  I like to use Mrs. Dash Chili Lime Seasoning.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 - 30 minutes until fork tender.
