If you count the cheese as your HexA this tasty little number comes in at only 3 Syns and since it uses Lo-Dough you’ll still have your HexB for something tasty at breakfast.
You can order Lo-Dough directly from the Lo-Dough website.

It works best in a sandwich press or a George Foreman grill but can be done in a pan if you hold it together with a spatula while cooking.

The trick is to fold the Lo-Dough over the meat and cheese in a six sided star shape. You then use a knife to hold it all in position while you transfer it to the toaster. Once the lid is down, it keeps together while it cooks and then holds its shape perfectly once toasted.

A perfect way to devour a tasty cheeseburger and keep bang on plan.

Here’s how you assemble your cheeseburger….
