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

I had a Ground Pork & Pesto Burger along with some Baked Crinkle Fries. The pesto mixed in with the Ground Pork is a perfect match! I had made up several of these and froze them. So after getting one from the freezer and thawing it out 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 Baby Bella Mushrooms, a slice of Sargento Muenster Cheese and Reduced Kraft Mayo and served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun. I left the recipe at the end of the post. If you’ve never had a Ground Pork Burger you have to give them a try! As a side I had Baked Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Ground Pork Burgers
(Makes 4 Burgers)
Ingredients:

1 LB. Ground Pork (I used a 93/7 Blend)
1/4 Cup Basil Pesto (You can add more or less to taste)
1/4 cup Italian Style Bread Crumbs
Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper, to taste
4 Slices of Smoked Gouda Cheese or Muenster Cheese, Optional
Lettuce, sliced Tomato optional

Instructions:

* In a mixing bowl add your bread crumbs, pesto, and ground pork. Mix together and form into 4 Burgers
* Spray a large skillet and heat on medium heat and add 1/2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
* Fry the Burgers to your liking, I fried these for about 4 minutes per side.
* Serve on a Bun of your choice (I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Buns). Add Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms, Reduced or Lite Mayo, and a Slice of Cheese.
