Today’s Menu: Ground Pork Pesto Burger w/ Crinkle Fries

I made up a new batch of the Ground Pork Burgers and froze all but one of them. Love these Ground Pork Burgers the taste is fantastic, the pesto with the Pork is a perfect match! I fried the Burger in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side. Comes out moist and juicy bursting with flavor. I topped it with some reduced Kraft Mayo, a teaspoon of Basil Pesto, a slice of Smoked Gouda Cheese and served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun. I left the recipe at the end of the post.  As a side I had Ore Ida Crinkle Fries with Heinz 57 Sauce on the side for dipping. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Hot Fudge Topping.

1 LB. Ground Pork (I used a 93/7 Blend)
1/4 Cup Basil Pesto (You can add more or less to taste)
