Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Pork Burger w/ Baked Fries



To start my morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 36 degrees and rain, and a whole lot of it! I seen a couple of houses up the street where the ambulance stopped and to take people off to the hospital. Bad way to start the week off! Did a couple of loads of laundry after Breakfast. Then after Lunch I had to go to Kroger and Pick Up my Grocery Order. A lot safer to order on line and then they deliver to your car. Back home all caught up today. Caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Pork Burger w/ Baked Fries.


I first fried about 5 slices of al fresco Chicken Bacon. I love using this Bacon, fries up perfect and only 35 calories for 2 slices. I sat aside until I added to the Burger. I only needed I only needed 2 slices but using the Bacon math you should always make double the amount. You have to have some eat as your preparing everything!


I bought a 1 lb. package of Ground Pork at Meijer the other day. With a 1 lb. package of Ground Pork you can easily get 4-5 Burgers. To make them I got a large bowl and added the Pork. I then added all the Spices; Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Cumin, Mustard Powder, Dried Cilantro Leaves. I mixed the Spices with the Ground Pork until well mixed. Don’t overwork the Pork, you don’t want to break the Pork down. Next just form the Pork Mixture into Burgers. To cook the Burgers I’m using a large Cast Iron Skillet. I first sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, heated the Skillet on medium heat. When the Skillet was heated up I added my Burgers.


After 3 minutes flip the burgers. Continued cooking for 6-8 minutes more. Flipped one more time, cover and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until cooked through. If you’re adding on Cheese, go ahead and do so with about a minute before removing from them pan. I’m using Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar. When cooking Pork Burgers, you want to make sure that they are cooked all the way through. Which means taking them to 160 degrees internally. I served the Burgers on Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Buns. The Burgers were topped with Sharp Cheddar Cheese, al fresco Chicken Bacon and Hellman’s Organic Mayonnaise – Spicy Chipotle. One delicious Burger!


To go with the Burger I I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Trop A Rocka Diet Snapple to drink.
