Everybody likes a good burger, but we don’t always want the carbs that come with the bread. All the flavour is in the ingredients between the pieces of bread, right? These Ostrich Burgers with Yoghurt Dip are perfect for the health-conscious individual or family as a lunchbox filler, snack or dinner.

There is a reason health-conscious people love ostrich meat. It’s because it’s incredibly lean and has all the added benefits of red meat with that distinctive flavour.

Making your own Ostrich Burgers with Yoghurt Dip is something you can do just before eating, or you can make a whole lot of them when doing your meal prep for the next few days. The patties also freeze very well in a sealed container. These burger patties are packed with protein, fibre, a few carbs and tons of flavour. They are also only 488 calories, making them perfect for a meal later in the day or evening.

Ostrich Burgers with Yoghurt Dip are not only healthy, but very tasty and perfect if you’re counting your daily calories.
