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

I love these Ground Pork Burgers the taste is fantastic, the pesto mixed in with the Pork is a perfect match! I had made up several of these and froze them. So after thawing I fried the Burger in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side. It came out moist and juicy bursting with flavor. I topped it with Sauteed Mushrooms, reduced Kraft Mayo, a teaspoon of Basil Pesto Sauce, and 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 Baked Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. I also had a bottle of the new Snapple Drink, Half and Half Iced Tea & Lemonade Diet Snapple. Plus it’s only 10 calories and 0 carbs! For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread.
