Bobcat Burger

My ode to Quinnipiac in the form of a healthy burger.

This burger is my ode to QU adorned with flavorful blue and gold toppings! Lean ground beef, whole grain rolls and low lactose cheese makes for a healthier burger that any college student can enjoy. Hope you enjoy this sneak peak at the Healthy, Quick & Easy College Cookbook. GO BOBCATS!
