The boys will be back in town again in 2020. Jason Reitman has announced he will be directing a new version of the classic comedy “Ghostbusters.”
Entertainment Weekly broke the news Tuesday night. Reitman, whose father, Ivan Reitman, directed the original movie, said next year’s film will be the next chapter and not a reboot of the film that starred Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis who died in 2014.
No plot or casting details have been released, nor has there been any word on if any of the original cast will appear in the new film.
“This is very early, and I want the film to unwrap like a present. We have a lot of wonderful surprises and new characters for the audience to meet,” Jason Reitman told Entertainment Weekly.
One thing that has been released is a teaser trailer by Sony Pictures.
Paul Feig directed a female-centric sequel of “Ghostbusters” released in 2016 starring Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy.
Sony is also working on an animated “Ghostbusters” film that is scheduled to be released after Reitman’s film, which is scheduled for release in summer 2020.
The man who drove a luxury sports car into water in Palm Beach, Florida, was apparently told by a higher power to ditch the car into the inlet.
James Mucciaccio told police that Jesus told him to drive into the water according to a police report filed by Palm Beach police, WPTV reported.
Mucciaccio had parked the Ferrari on a public dock, when police found him taking items out of the car.
He told officers that a friend told him to park there and that he would be picking him up by boat. Police told Mucciaccio that he couldn’t park on the dock. He apologized and returned to the car to get his driver’s license, WPTV reported. That’s when he got behind the wheel and threw the car into reverse, backing off the dock then putting it in drive, speeding off into Palm Beach Inlet, the television station reported. Police dash cam showed the crash.
After he got out of the water, police asked him why he did it.
Mucciaccio said, according to the police report, “Jesus told me to drive through a small gate and into a 6-foot window. Jesus made me the smartest man on earth and it’s so hard to have this much responsibility. Money is going to be irrelevant in two days, remember to smile,” WPTV reported.
He also told police an officer on the dock was Egyptian and didn’t believe in Jesus and that’s why he drove into the water.
Police said the license plate on the Ferrari was not the car’s plate, but rather belonged to Mucciaccio’s Mustang, WPTV reported.
Metallica is debuting its own brand of beer, and it’s not surprising the brew will be packaged in metal cans.
The heavy metal band announced Enter Night, a collaboration with Stone Brewing Co. of Escondido, California. On its website, Stone Brewing describes the beer as “the cataclysmic collision of two uncompromising supernatural forces.”
The beer, also described as “a hoppy pilsner played through a distortion pedal,” appeared during the band’s tour dates last fall and will be distributed across the United States during the first quarter of 2019, Rolling Stone reported.
The beer also will debut in China, Europe and Australia, the magazine reported.
Metallica worked directly with the brewers at Arrogant Consortia, an imprint of Stone Brewing, to create Enter Night.
It’s not the first time Metallica has ventured into the adult beverage market. In 2018 the band released a whiskey called Blackened.
Fans of Metallica can now sample either drink, as the day exits light and enters night.
A Florida man threatened to kill someone with kindness, then stabbed a neighbor with a machete with the word “kindness” written on it, investigators said.
A neighbor heard yelling at Bryan Stewart’s house around midnight Sunday and approached the house to tell him to be quiet, the Pensacola News Journal reported.
Another neighbor, the victim, had also heard noise and was at the house when Stewart came out of the house with his arm raised, holding the machete. The victim raised his arm and stepped in front of the blade, suffering a half-inch abrasion to his left hand, the News Journal reported.
Stewart, 30, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill and aggravated battery, according to jail records.
A fishing boat capsized late Tuesday night in a treacherous area off the Oregon coast, killing the three fishermen on board.
The accident happened, according to news reports, as the U.S. Coast Guard was escorting the Mary B. II into port across a dangerous section of water off Newport, Oregon, known as the Yaquina Bay Bar, an area where the Yaquina River currents mix with Pacific Ocean currents.
The fishermen, identified as James Lacey, 48; Joshua Porter, 50; and the boat’s captain, Stephen Biernacki, 50, had been crabbing for three days when they requested an escort as they tried to make it back in, according to Oregon Live.
Coast Guard crews faced 12-to 14-foot waves as they tried to rescue the crew after the boat capsized, The Associated Press reported.
They managed to pull one of the men in, but not soon enough to save him. A second fisherman’s body was later found on shore. Biernacki’s body was found in the hull of the boat after it washed up on a jetty.
An investigation is underway.
Correction: A previous version of this story said the Mary B. II was featured on the Discovery Channel’s reality TV show “Deadliest Catch,” but a spokeswoman for the network told The New York Post that was not the case.
For Bears fans who criticized Cody Parkey’s missed field goal at the end of Sunday’s NFC wild-card game, a Chicago brewing company has issued a challenge -- kick a 43-yard field goal and win free beer for a year, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
The Bears lost 16-15 to the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles when Parkey’s field goal attempt hit the left upright of the goal post and then dropped down, bouncing forward off the crossbar.
"You can't make this up," Parkey said after the game. "I feel terrible. I let the team down. That's on me. I have to own it. I have to be a man."
It’s not even an official miss any more. On Monday, the NFL officially changed the miss to a block, crediting Eagles defensive lineman Treyvon Hester with getting a finger on the ball to alter the trajectory of the kick, ESPN reported.
Parkey has been subjected to heavy criticism and has been the subject of many internet memes since the play. Officials at Goose Island Brewing Co. took to social media to issue their frothy challenge.
“A lot of armchair kickers on here are saying that they could hit that field goal, which we find DOUBTFUL,” Goose Island tweeted Monday. “You’re gonna sit there on your throne of potato chips and vape pens and criticize this dude’s athleticism? GET REAL.”
Goose Island will set up field goal posts outside its taproom in Chicago. Fans can attempt kicking a 43-yard field goal during the brewery’s normal business hours this weekend, the Sun-Times reported.
Patrons who make the kick will win free beer for a year.
“All you pro athletes can come out and prove us wrong,” Goose Island tweeted.
A Wisconsin woman avoided jail time Monday after pleading guilty to stealing a police car while in handcuffs last month, WISN reported.
Antoinette Martin, of Wauwatosa, was sentenced to 90 days in the Milwaukee County of House of Correction, with 90 days already served, the television station reported. She also received three years of probation.
Martin had been handcuffed in July while police investigated claims she threatened a couple with a screwdriver, WISN reported. Martin was led to a squad car but slipped out of her handcuffs, driving away with the vehicle before abandoning it several blocks later, the television station reported.
Martin was found by a K-9 several moments later.
The officers involved in her arrest were not disciplined, WISN reported.
The awning of a Sunoco gas station in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, collapsed Tuesday as strong winds moved through the area.
The collapse happened about 5:30 p.m. on Haymaker Road.
The awning came down on two vehicles.
A man was inside a red truck moments before the collapse.
"The customers started screaming like, 'Oh my God.' And I was like, 'What's going on?' It was really scary. I never experienced something like that before," said Angelina Weaver, who works at the Burger King across the street.
The gas station remained closed Wednesday morning.
Tulsa County deputies said a man entered the courthouse Monday morning wearing a harness, with his genitals exposed.
Court cameras caught Brian Johnson parking a car in front of the plaza and entering the courthouse wearing only a jacket, shoes and the harness.
The footage shows deputies telling him to stop and then arresting him as he continued inside.
KOKI-TV spoke with Johnson at the jailhouse to ask about why he did it.
He said that he was acting on a dare. He initially only thought he could face a misdemeanor charge and was stunned to learn he would be charged with felony indecent exposure.
Johnson said he regrets his decision and realizes it was a pretty bad idea.
A Florida woman attacked her parents last week following a dispute over Outback Steakhouse, deputies said.
According to WPLG, Deana Seltzer, 28, of Lake Worth, was arrested Jan. 2 on charges of simple battery, battery of a person 65 or older and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said.
Authorities said Seltzer repeatedly punched her mother, scratched her father, flipped a glass table and destroyed furniture after her mother said she wouldn't take her to the popular chain restaurant, ABC News reported.
Deputies also said Seltzer grabbed a 12-inch knife and chased her father while screaming, "I'm going to (expletive) kill you," WPLG reported.
Seltzer was booked in the Palm Beach County jail, then released the next day on "supervised recognizance," ABC News reported.
Residents in West Texas noticed mysterious glowing red lights in the skies over Midland Tuesday night.
People started calling into news stations reporting the unusual occurrence.
Turns out the odd lights were an unusual weather phenomenon.
Light from gas flares in the area refracted off ice crystals in the clouds causing the weird red lights, according to the National Weather Service in Midland.
Denver could become the first U.S city to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms if a new measure makes it onto the ballot for the city’s municipal elections in May.
Officials with the campaign Denver for Psilocybin said they have gathered enough signatures -- more than 8,000 -- to put the issue before voters, according to KUSA-TV. The group only needed just under 4,300 to get the issue on the ballot, but Denver’s election office still has to verify the signatures.
“This is a chance for Denver and Colorado to be an example for the rest of the country,” the campaign director for Denver for Psilocybin, Kevin Matthews, told KUSA.
The measure would not legalize magic mushrooms, but decriminalize possession of the drug. It’s based on a 2007 initiative to decriminalize marijuana possession in Denver, the news station reported.
We’re not talking about a regulatory framework, we’re not talking about a recreational framework at all,” Matthews said.
The measure calls for treating possession of the drug by people 21 and older as the “lowest law enforcement priority” and prohibit the prosecution of cases related to mushroom possession.
There’s also a mushroom measure underway in Oregon, but that proposal would legalize the drug.
The government classifies psychedelic mushrooms as a Schedule 1 drug, the same as LSD and heroin.
Police are looking for a man seen on a home surveillance video licking a doorbell for three hours at a Salinas, California, residence.
KION reported that Sylvia and Dave Dungan called police when they saw the footage. The homeowners were out of town at the time of the incident and their children were inside the house sleeping, but their surveillance system alerts them when there’s movement in front of the camera, according to the news station.
“I thought, boy there’s a lot of traffic,” homeowner Sylvia Dungan told KION. “I go, ‘5:00 in the morning? My son doesn’t get home till 6:00. I go, ‘Well that’s kind of odd.’ So I started reviewing the videos.”
Police later identified the man as Roberto Daniel Arroyo, 33.
“We were pleasantly surprised the image was so clear it didn't take us long to identify the individual,” Salinas Police Department spokesperson Miguel Cabrera told KION.
The New York Post reported that authorities were able to identify the suspect in part because he has a number of misdemeanor offenses. Cabrera told The Post his past misdemeanors include public intoxication, resisting arrest, and being under the influence of narcotics.
Police also said Arroyo relieved himself in the yard and attempted to take an extension cord, which was found the next morning by neighbors.
“You kind of laugh about it afterwards because, technically, he didn’t harm anybody, he didn’t break anything,” Sylvia Dungan said.
Police say Arroyo may face misdemeanor charges of petty theft and prowling.
The family has since wiped down the doorbell.
A dancer at a Florida strip club is accused of online threats to commit a mass shooting, The Ledger of Lakeland reported.
According to the Lakeland Police Department, Brein Basarich, 31, was arrested at her Lakeland home on Jan. 2 on charges of written threats to kill, and to do bodily injury or conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism, the newspaper reported. Basarich, a dancer at the Showgirls Men’s Club in nearby Plant City, posted on the blogging site Tumblr under the user name “taking-lives,” WFLA reported.
According to the arrest affidavit, Basarich’s Tumblr account allegedly had posts that state “I had a vision ... of a very public place, only one way in and one way out. Preferably a bar/club on a busy night. 2019 has a lot in store if my plans go according!”
The affidavit said Basarich planned to buy an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle “soonish,” the Ledger reported.
“Pretty excited. It will be my first gun and I plan to get others,” she allegedly wrote on Tumblr.
Police said Basarich admitted she wrote the posts and is a "fan of serial killers and mass murderers," WFLA reported.
Basarich was taken to the Polk County Jail and later released on $5,000 bond, the television station reported.
A bald eagle died after it was shot in Maine and the game wardens are looking for the person responsible.
There is a $1,000 reward for information leading to a conviction.
The eagle was found in Waterford, Maine on Dec. 26 with six shotgun pellets lodged in its jaw, wing and leg. It was captured and taken to Avian Haven in Freedom, Maine.
On Dec. 30, the eagle died.
According to the Maine game wardens, the state's 2019 eagle population includes 734 nesting pairs. That's up from a low of 21 pairs in 1967.
Singer Neil Young posted a moving tribute to his ex-wife, who died last week of cancer at age 66.
On his Neil Young Archives website Saturday night, Young spoke of Pegi Young, who died Jan. 1. They were his first public comments since his wife of 36 years, Margaret Mary Morton -- known as Pegi -- died.
Young, 73, posted the lyrics to the song, “Such a Woman,” adding his thanks to Pegi “For being such a wonderful mother to our children. You live inside of them and the many you have touched.”
The couple met in 1974 when Pegi was a working as a waitress and was living with her dog in a tepee, The New York Times reported. They were married four years later,
In his 1992 song, “Unknown Legend,” Young wrote about that first meeting:
“She used to work in a diner / Never saw a woman look finer / I used to order just to watch her float across the floor.”
She and Young had two children together, Ben and Amber. They were divorced in 2014; Neil Young married actress Daryl Hannah in 2018, The New York Times reported.
In his 2013 book, “Waging Heavy Peace,” Young wrote that his ex-wife “Was always organized and methodical in her approach to problems” and that performing songs with her was a thrill.
“Even with all the great singers I have sung with, there is nothing like singing with Pegi,” Young wrote.
Pegi Young sang backup on several of her husband’s songs, and in 2007 released the first of her five albums, the Times reported. Her final album, “Raw,” was released in 2017.
Andrew Lumish is making sure America’s fallen heroes’ final resting places reflect the honor due to the nation’s military.
He decided to clean their cemetery headstones.
Lumish has cleaned about 600 so far, Fox News reported, and is doing his duty not only to show his admiration of the men and women who have gone before him, but also to learn about the lives of each of the veterans.
He told Fox News that he started the project to show respect to those who served, but he also wants to remember his friends who have come back from war either killed in battle or who are still suffering from being mobilized.
He noticed how bad some headstones had become after taking photos at a cemetery a few years ago, NBC News reported.
“If you were just walking or driving by, you would just see a weathered, very dirty monument and would have no idea who it belonged to,” Lumish told Fox News.
Since that time, he has used every Sunday to honor the nation’s military dead, visiting Florida cemeteries, lugging 25 gallons of water, brushes and an environmentally safe cleaning solution.
He said it can take months to fully clean a headstone, depending on what the stone is constructed of and how dirty it is, NBC News reported.
Summer time means grilling time, and we all know what that means: burger season. We love a good juicy burger just like the rest of ‘em, but we’ll be the first to admit that ladlefuls of mayo and barbecue aren’t necessarily the healthiest choices. So we’ve scoped out all sorts of healthy options to suit any palate, from carnivores to any vegetarians in the house. And do away with boring condiments like lettuce and tomato by subbing in some exciting swaps (fig and goat cheese, anyone?).
No matter your taste preference, these healthy recipes will fulfill all your burgery needs all summer long.
Tips for Making a Healthier Burger
Whatever type of burger you make, before you fire up the grill, keep these tricks in mind to amp up the flavor and the benefits of your meal.
Beans and Legumes
The blogger behind this recipe says the pico topping (made with mango and avocado) is the most magical thing she's has ever put on a burger. And we believe it. For a super summery meal, this is it, thanks to fresh cilantro, mango, and a light base of lentils and veggies.
This burger is just as much veggie as it is bean. Peppers, onion, and carrot join chickpeas and herbs for a nutritionally dense patty. Ground flaxseed—known for its high fiber and omega-3s—stands in for an egg to hold the ingredients together.
This burger is both vegan and gluten-free. With sun-dried tomatoes, an ample amount of garlic, and fresh basil, this burger pays homage to the marguerita pizza (minus the cheese). Instead of breadcrumbs, this creation stays together with the help of vitamin E-filled almond meal (which is literally crushed up almonds).
Sometimes it’s not easy being green, but this burger gets its verdant hue by default with such ingredients as scallions, spinach, tarragon, chives, and parsley. Oats and tofu provide the base, while mustard and lemon juice add a citrusy tang.
This veggie burger is packed with good stuff, including oats, beans, squash, quinoa, and corn—and that’s just for starters. The ingredients lend well to whatever fresh or dry spices you’ve got on hand (the recipe suggests any combination of cumin, tarragon, coriander, and chili powder). By mashing the beans only part way, the burgers maintain a hearty texture.
Earthy mushrooms, meaty lentils, and salty kalamata olives combine for a burger you can sink your teeth into. But the star here is the sauce: Creamy, garlicky, and super easy to make (soak cashews, then whirl everything in a food processor), you'll want to make extra to put on sandwiches and water down for salads and pastas.
Red onion marmalade may not be your average burger condiment, but it’s easy to make, and it adds a sweet tang thanks to vinegar and a little bit of brown sugar. The burger itself includes both red and green bell peppers, chickpeas, and seasonings such as tahini, superfoods garlic and turmeric, and coriander.
We’re huge fans of sriracha, the super popular paste-like hot sauce. This spicy patty gets in on the (hot) action. It’s made mostly from black beans and oats and is seasoned with superfood garlic and cilantro. This blogger suggests crumbling leftover burger into an egg scramble for an amped-up breakfast.
Chicken and Turkey
In Vietnamese, "banh mi" stands for a single serving baguette, but the sandwich itself generally includes a meat of some sort as well as cilantro, chili peppers, and pickled carrots. Lean ground chicken, tons of veggies, and an egg makes this burger (which loosely mimics a banh mi) a healthy, well-balanced meal. Plus, the yolk makes for a hassle-free condiment.
Though it may sound sinful to separate a burger from its bun (the shame!), this chicken version gets sandwiched between two slices of char-grilled zucchini (and is just one of the many ways to cut back on carbs). Not a bad way to up the day’s veggie servings!
This burger is easy-peasy to make (just be sure to remove the red chili pepper seeds or your tongue may lose all feeling for the remainder of the meal). If this is your first introduction to fish sauce, you can find the savory liquid (made from salted, fermented fish) in the Asian section of the grocery store, near the soy sauce. Or make this vegan version instead.
Mangos strike again! But we certainly don’t hate it. This time it’s in the form of a slaw (feel free to sub in plain Greek yogurt for all or half of the mayo). The burger itself has even more fruit with the addition of a chopped tart apple.
Ohhhh yeah. Gooey brie, crunchy and tart superfood apple, and rich caramelized onions make this burger a total winner. Lean ground turkey makes for a protein-packed lunch or dinner!
Fajitas? In a burger? Pass it over! The idea is simple—this burger’s got all the fixings of your standard fajita (turkey, onion, bell peppers, and jalapeño), just sans the steaming hot skillet. This sounds like the perfect home for a scoop of heart-healthy guac!
These chicken burgers are smoky and sweet, with pineapple rings as the featured topping, and paprika and chili powder to season. A light layer of pepper jack cheese helps keep the pineapple, which is full of fiber and vitamin C, in place.
This blogger makes an excellent point—turkey burgers can be pretty blah. But thankfully, this version is the opposite of bland with crumbled feta, char-grilled red pepper, and arugula, which adds a little bite. Don’t forget to check out the simple tutorial for charring!
Think outside of the bun and fill your burger with cheese rather than haphazardly tossing it on top (jeez, who does that anymore?!). We forgive you if you slather the BBQ sauce, which is made with peach preserves, on every food item in the fridge.
Veggies, Nuts, Grains, and Seeds
This burger marries every healthy and delicious thing ever. OK, so we’re exaggerating a wee bit, but it does include sweet potato, roasted garlic, protein-rich quinoa, chipotle chiles, lime juice, sharp cheddar, and homemade avocado-ranch dressing (amongst other ingredients). While the ingredient list is lengthy and this burger requires a little more prep work than some of the others, the end result is nothing short of mouth-watering.
These burgers are all about umami—the savory, meaty taste found in foods like mushrooms and soy. Instead of meat or beans, the burger draws on superfoods quinoa (which packs a protein punch) and oats for its base. It gets its umami flavor from a hefty dose of white mushrooms.
Shredded beets, know for the rare antioxidant betalains, add a touch of sweetness to these patties. Even cooler: The beets turn the burgers bright red! One of these guys is a nutrition powerhouse, combining lentils, quinoa, rice, and oats.
This burger is all healthy thanks to seeds, quinoa flakes, and (of course) broccoli and pistachios (two of our favorite green superfoods). If using pre-salted seeds, feel free to cut back on the sea salt (1/4 teaspoon should do it.).
No risk of E. coli with these raw burgers! Marinating portobellos in tamari, liquid smoke, agave, and apple cider vinegar adds tons of flavor. The meaty shrooms made a hearty texture when mixed with ground pepitas, celery, and carrots. And if you don't have a deydrator (because who does?), just bake them in the oven. They won't be "raw," but they'll still be delicious.
This veggie-heavy burger beefs up its nutrition stats with vitamin-rich carrots, celery, zucchini, and onion. Brown rice and oats amp up the fiber content, and tofu adds in some veg-based protein. If you’ve never heard of nutritional yeast, it’s a healthy cheese alternative (vegan, low in fat, and high in protein) that tastes nutty and cheesy at the same time.
This meat-free burger uses nuts (cashews), seeds (sunflower), and grains (brown rice). Onions and a big helping of carrots keep these patties from going dry and add the carotenoid beta-carotene, which converts into eye-healthy vitamin A.
Aptly dubbed the “veggie burgers for the carnivore in your life,” these patties employ mushrooms as their base, a plant-based alternative that offers a slightly meaty flavor when cooked. Brown rice and oats add filling fiber and keep the chopped ‘shrooms from falling apart. For a healthier spread, try combining fig preserves with goat cheese instead of mayo.
For this burger there’s no mixing, and no getting your hands dirty in a bowl of mushed up stuff. Portobello mushrooms serve as the actual patty, while goat cheese and red bell pepper add color and flavor.
Beef, Bison, and Pork
This burger has a whole lot of intense flavors going on. Apple and sage are stuffed right in the burger, while a jalapeño-sage pesto and crumbled smoked blue cheese go on top. Whoa. To keep the burgers (or any meat-based burger, for that matter) from getting tough, avoid over-mixing the ingredients (mix just until everything is combined).
The light yogurt sauce used for this burger—which uses nonfat plain Greek yogurt, cucumbers, superfood garlic, and lemon juice—lends flavor without adding a boatload of extra fat like regular mayo would. This burger is also chock full of vegetables (roasted red peppers, romaine, cucumber, and red onion). Choose a whole-wheat bun for an even healthier option.
This recipe calls for grass-fed beef, which tends to be slightly lower in overall fat and higher in omega-3 fatty acids (compared to conventional meats). Turn to pineapple and chipotle chili powder-infused avocado cream sauce (say that ten times fast) for both spicy and sweet flavors.
If you’ve never dabbled in bison, it’s time to get cookin’. Bison meat generally has less fat than beef as well as a higher protein content. This specific burger gets jazzed up with slow-roasted tomatoes and wine-sautéed onions.
What makes this burger worthy of a German pilsner? It’s topped with sauerkraut, whole-grain mustard, and caraway seeds—the earthy, citrusy spice used in rye bread (and tons of other German staples). For a healthier rendition of this burger, swap the sour cream with plain Greek yogurt.
This quick-to-prepare meal gets a spicy kick from shredded pepper jack and diced green chiles (feel free to use fresh ones, or find prepared, canned chiles in your supermarket’s Mexican food section).
While apples are a more typical fruit accompaniment to burgers, this beef patty is infused with superfood blueberries, which are rich in the antioxidant anthocyanins. (Note: Thawed frozen berries work just fine!). The addition of Worcestershire sauce counters the sweetness of the berries.
As we’ve seen in a few previous entries, this burger turns to nut flour (from ground almonds) instead of breadcrumbs. What’s the point? The nut flour means added nutrition—a 1/4 cup serving provides 35 percent of the daily value of vitamin E as well as three grams of fiber and six grams of protein. It’s also a healthy choice for all the gluten-free folks out there.
This recipe goes the extra mile with homemade buns. For that special touch, you can do the same, or buy your favorite whole-wheat pre-made version. And as a side note, we’d use this super delicious avocado-yogurt dressing for just about anything!
More mango! (We just can’t get enough). This time, simple pork burgers join a sweet and tangy chutney of mango, raisins, onion, and vinegar. Tip: For super lean pork, head to a butcher and choose a pound of tenderloin (and ask for it to be ground).
This burger uses two parts extra-lean ground beef and one part lean—a great way to add in just the right amount of fat to maintain the juiciness of a good burger without going full-out on the calories. To cut down on more added calories and fat, choose sun-dried tomatoes that are not packaged in oil. The meat itself lends plenty of flavor without it!
Talk about a one-pot meal! To whip this puppy up, toss all of the ingredients in a ball before forming patties. The horseradish and soy combo add an umami bite. This recipe uses lettuce instead of buns to hold the burger, but feel free to serve it however you’d like.
These burgers have it all: Salty feta and pomegranate seeds infuse the bison patty for cheesy pleasure in every bite. Then it's topped with caramelized onions, extra feta, pomegranate sauce, and watercress for a colorful and gourmet meal that's easy to make and loaded with flavors that come together perfectly.
Pickled peaches may not be a pantry staple in your kitchen, but they’re the perfect way to pair sweet and sour. For a quick pickling method, boil and simmer peaches, onion, vinegar, mustard, sugar, and salt and then let cool (no need to let it ferment for months and months). Serve the burgers in whole-wheat pitas to keep the peaches from going anywhere but your stomach.
Booze with a meal, and in a meal? Yes, please! While it’s less than a cup (and likely not buzz-inducing), the wine adds a nice flavor to the caramelized onions. With just a few (healthy) ingredients, the burger itself couldn’t be easier to prep.
Venison, Veal, and Lamb
This burger goes bun-less to capitalize on the flavorful meat and slight nuttiness from the hazelnuts. Top with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt (our go-to healthy condiment base) and a few sprigs of fresh dill.
The Mediterranean diet is all the rage (and may even make us happier with healthy fats and tons of fresh fruits and veggies). This burger gets its Mediterranean flair from roasted red peppers, basil pesto, and grilled eggplant. Toss whole-grain bread into the food processor for healthier breadcrumbs.
This guy is super simple. All it takes is venison, held together with egg and breadcrumbs, then sage, red pepper, and mushrooms for a little crunch and flavor. If you’re looking to ditch the mayo, check out our list of healthier condiments (we particularly recommend the yogurt herb Dijon spread or avocado spread).
While prosciutto isn’t exactly the healthiest burger topping in existence, a little goes a long way—just a slice for each burger will do. Choose whole-wheat breadcrumbs or nut flour (such as hazelnut or almond) for a healthier way to bind the ingredients.
Choose sun-dried tomatoes that aren’t packed in olive oil for a lighter but still flavorful topping. The burger itself is simple, but gets jazzed up with some sun-dried tomatoes.
Lamb can be higher in fat and calories compared to beef, but some cuts—such as loin, shank, and leg—are healthier. It may be worth your while to ask a butcher to grind your preferred cut. Yogurt, cucumber, and mint create a light topping that pairs nicely with the lamb.
This is definitely not your average chain-restaurant fair. The burger itself includes capers, minced pickles, and apple cider. Crumbled goat cheese, pomegranate seeds, and baby arugula make for festive-looking (and healthy!) toppings. Added bonus: Pom seeds provide a good amount of fiber as well as plenty of antioxidants, which may help prevent heart problems Pomegranate Protection against Cardiovascular Diseases.

These patties feature a dollop of summer with a salsa made from vitamin A- and C-rich watermelon, along with onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and limejuice. The burgers themselves are a simple mixture of fish, breadcrumbs, egg, mustard, garlic, and spices.
This budget-friendly and low-cal burger uses canned tuna and panko bread crumbs as its foundation. To flavor the meal, add a good amount of lemon juice, fresh parsley and chopped green onion, and some minced, good-for-you garlic. Top with sour cream or plain yogurt for some tang!
This burger draws from traditional Asian flavors with ingredients like ginger, peanut butter, soy sauce, and hoisin sauce. Find hoisin, a Chinese dipping sauce made from toasted mashed soybeans, in the Asian section of the supermarket. Try plain yogurt instead of mayo for a lower calorie swap.
Eating one of these burgers twice a week (or just eating salmon in general) can increase levels of HDL (the good cholesterol) 19339404. Cilantro and lime create a light dressing, and sliced avocado adds some guilt-free, heart-healthy creaminess.
This recipe calls for a skinless salmon fillet, but for a quick, easy, and cheaper alternative, turn to canned salmon. Choose whole-wheat breadcrumbs or oats for more fiber. Horseradish adds a kick for negligible calories.
You’ve heard it before, and we’ll undoubtedly say it again, but feel free to use our favorite swap in this recipe: plain yogurt for mayo. Just two tablespoons of light mayo packs nearly 100 calories, while the same amount of plain nonfat yogurt has only 16 calories (plus 3 grams of protein!). These burgers are low in calories and have more fish than breadcrumbs compared to some chain restaurant fish patties.
This burger has only a few ingredients (including scallions, parsley, and lemon zest), which lets the protein-rich shrimp shine. Since this recipe calls for only three tablespoons of mayo, it may be worth it to go for the real stuff.
A surveillance camera captured an underground water pipe exploding Tuesday in the middle of a street in Kiev, Ukraine.
The video from ABC News shows the street bubbling up all of a sudden and bursting. Another view from the surveillance cameras shows water rushing down the street.
The explosion damaged cars and buildings nearby, but there were no injuries.

The Pentagon announced that the United States on Tuesday tested for the first time its intercontinental ballistic missile defense system, a system designed to foil the types of missiles Kim Jong-un and North Korea have been looking to develop.
According to Reuters, the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) interceptor test took place today at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
The test was a success.
“We improve and learn from each test, regardless of the outcome. That’s the reason we conduct them,” Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said Tuesday. “The system that we test today is a developmental system that’s being flown for the first time and we look forward to understanding the results so we continue to mature the system and stay ahead of the threat.”
While the test is said not to be just about North Korea, the timing indicates that it has everything to do with Kim Jong-un’s recent ballistic missile tests.
The most recent test launch over the weekend flew roughly 248 miles and landed within Japan’s exclusive economic zone, CNN reported.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe responded to that test by promising “specific action.”
“As we agreed at the recent G7, the issue of North Korea is a top priority for the international community,” Abe said Monday. “Working with the United States, we will take specific action to deter North Korea.”
The Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance’s founder Riki Ellison told Reuters the defense test was North Korea-focused.
The test was done to “replicat[e] our ability to defend the United States of America from North Korea, today,” he said.
Reuters described the GMD’s effect as “hitting a bullet with a bullet,” though we’re talking about really big bullets.
