It is hard to think of a food that is more quintessentially American than the hamburger. A beef patty, bun, lettuce, tomato, pickles, cheese, ketchup, and mustard or some combination of these are the familiar ingredients that make a great burger. Perhaps you're a hamburger lover, but you're looking for a diversion from the usual ingredients. Here are a few ways to spice things up.

Instead of a plain hamburger, try mixing some ingredients in with the meat. One tasty alternative to putting focaccia bread a slice of cheese on the bun is to try mixing the cheese into the ground beef. This is especially delicious with bleu cheese. Adding some cheese crumbles will give the beef patty some bulk, and as it cooks the cheese will melt inside, creating a tasty combination of flavors built right into the patty. You can also try mixing nuts in with the ground beef. Walnuts add flavor and give the burger just a little bit of crunch.

Serve healthy pizza. Pizza doesn't have to be greasy and oozing with sauce. Have a couple of premade pizza doughs (such as Boboli) on hand and experiment with healthy toppings that cater to your family's individual tastes. We love to have Mexican Pizza, for example, layered with refried or black beans, then salsa, onions, olives and a bit of cheese. It cooks in less than 10 minutes. Another idea we use a lot: purchase a plain frozen cheese pizza and let the kids pile on their own healthy toppings.

Place focaccia wedges on the grill rack; grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until toasted. Remove burgers and focaccia from grill. Place each burger on a wedge of bread baking crock; sprinkle immediately with cheese. Spoon Tomato Relish on top. Makes 6 burgers.

Stouffer's got the portion size (10 oz.) just about right. When I finished eating I wished I had a few more bites, but once I stopped I realized I was full. I think I just wanted more because it tasted so good.

Dairy products and substitutes provide simple options. Try creating a parfait in an elegant dessert cup or even a tall mason jar. Build layers by alternating plain yogurt with liquid honey, muesli, granola, fresh, canned or dried fruit. At the end of a hard week, treat yourself with a few pure dark chocolate chips on the top.
