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

 

To start my morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I used a al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty, 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy, 87 degrees, with passing rain showers out today. I believe our Cicada problem is over, finally! I found very few out today. This seems like a long time coming. I wanted to rake the yard but it was just too windy. So I cleaned out what I could in our flower beds and the cleaned off the deck and driveway. Later I did a small load of laundry.  For Dinner tonight I prepared an Asiago Cheese Ground Pork Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I bought a 1 lb. package of Ground Pork at Meijer a while back.  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. I had them all in the freezer. I took a package of 2 and sat them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To cook the Burgers I’m using a Cast Iron Skillet. I first sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Cooking 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 4 minutes more. Flipped one more time and cook for another 2 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 Boar’s Head Asiago Cheese. 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 Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Buns. The Burgers were topped with the Boar’s Head Asiago Cheese, and Hellman’s Organic Mayonnaise – Spicy Chipotle. One delicious Burger! I had tried the Asiago Cheese on the Pork Burgers last time I made them and loved the taste. So I bought some sliced Boar’s Head Asiago Cheese from the Kroger Deli my last visit there. Kroger has a great variety of Boar’s Head Meat and Cheese Products.

 

To go with the Burger I I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ground Pork…….
Vitamins B6 and B12, are found abundantly in pork, are essential for blood cell formation and brain function. Pork is also an excellent source of iron — the heme-iron found in red meats is absorbed very easily by the human digestive system.

Pork. Lean pork is every bit as good for your body as lean beef and chicken. In one study, substituting lean pork for beef and chicken led to less body fat and better heart health. For a spicy take, try ancho-rubbed pork tenderloin.
