Today’s Menu: Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Still had a few things to do outside before the Landscapers got here. We’re having all the old bushes and roses pulled out and putting in new bushes and hedges. A high school friend of mine owns his own landscaping service and he’s doing the work for us. And what a job! It looks great, so much better! Thank you Dave great work. I had to call my dermatologist and get an appointment. I have a not so pretty place coming in on my right leg and wanted it to get checked asap! It worries me when something comes up like this. It brings back a lot bad memories having dealt with Melanoma for so long and costing my left leg. More on this when I know more. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 


I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

 


For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet, on medium heat, that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side. After flipping the Burger I added a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar with about 1 minute of cook time left. Topped with the Chicken Bacon and served the Burger on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious, as all the Wild Idea Burgers are. Just love a good Burger, Buffalo Burger!

 


For the Cheese I used Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar. I tried a sample of it at Kroger a while back and really loved the taste. It melts perfectly and has an excellent Cheddar taste. Our Cheese of choice lately!

 

 

 

 

 


To go with my Burger I baked some of my favorite Fries – Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers

Prepare for a whole new level of burger. Conveniently pre-made into one-third pound patties that are ever so grillable. Dinner ready. Each pack is 1 pound with 3 – 1/3 Lb patties.

Today’s Menu: Bison Sliders w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very restless last night and I didn’t get a lot of sleep. Rain Showers, Humid, and 88 degrees out today. A good day to stay in and get caught up on some sleep! For Dinner tonight I prepared Bison Sliders w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

Tonight I’m trying the Buffalo Gal Bison Slider Patties. I had ordered the Bison Sliders, Bison Cube Steak, and Bison New York Strip Steaks. I had the Cube Steak the other night, which was excellent! And tonight it’s the Buffalo Sliders. They come 8 to a package, 2 oz. Sliders. I had them in the freezer so I layed 2 of them in fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare them I’ll need Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar (1 slice is enough for both Burgers), and Pepperidge Farm Classic Slider Buns.

 

 

To prepare I grabbed a skillet and added a tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive oil to it. I heated it on medium heat. When the Skillet was ready I added my Sliders. As all Bison or Buffalo Meats it cooks quickly so keep a close eye on them. I cooked them about 2 1/2 minutes per side, I added the 1/2 a slice of Cheese to the sliders after I flipped them. They cooked up perfectly! The Slider Buns and Patties fit perfect. Excellent product from Buffalo Gal!

 

 

 

To go with the Sliders I baked some Fries. I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert later I’m having a Country Apple Dumpling with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Ice Cream. Mom came across the recipe in the latest issue of AllRecipes Magazine. I turned out really good! Mom replaced the Sugar with Splenda and we used Diet Sprite in place of the regular Sprite to save on calories and carbs. For the Ice Cream I used Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

 

 

 

Buffalo Gal Bison Sliders

A miniature version of our lean 100% buffalo burger patties. Makes a great appetizer. Perfect finger food for your next party! 8 (2 oz.) sliders.

Today’s Menu: ROAST BUFFALO SANDWICHES WITH CHIVE CREAM CHEESE w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start my morning off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. And as always I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its mostly cloudy and 82 degrees, with showers and thunderstorms moving in for the evening. Got the cart and leaf blower out and cleaned off the Deck and driveway areas. After Lunch I finally got around to finishing up touching up the shutters. For Dinner tonight I prepared ROAST BUFFALO SANDWICHES WITH CHIVE CREAM CHEESE w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

I’m trying the Wild Idea Buffalo – English Roast tonight for Dinner. The Roast weighs 1.5 LBS, just the right size for a couple of people to make some delicious Roast Buffalo Sandwiches. There’s also a recipe for Chive Cream Cheese to top the sliced Roast Buffalo with. For the Roast I’ll need; Extra Light Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Onion Powder, and Garlic Powder.

 

 

 

 

To make the Chive Cream Cheese I’ll need; an 8 oz. package Philadelphia Cream Cheese, chopped and trimmed green onions, and Caper Juice. Save the Capers for a topping for Sandwich. To prepare it I softened the cream cheese at room temperature and placed in food processor with the green onions and caper juice. Pulse until incorporated. Set aside until it was time to use it.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; I had the English Roast in the freezer so I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Next day I rinsed the Roast and pat dry. Rubbed Roast with the Extra Light Olive Oil, and Seasonings, cover and rest at room temperature for two hours prior to cooking. Then Pre-heat oven to 500°. Place prepped roast in a heavy pot or casserole, uncovered. Place in a hot oven, closing door quickly. Reduce heat to 475°and roast for 13 minutes at 475°. Shut the oven off and leave the roast in oven for 2½ hours. DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR.

 

 

 

Next I got the Hoagie Buns ready. I’m using Kroger Brand 100% Whole Wheat Hoagie Rolls. I love these, always so fresh and they’re 160 calories and 28 carbs per roll. I spread the Chive Cream Cheese inside of the Roll.

 

 

 

 

 

I removed the Roast from the oven and what an aroma! I got the old Foster Brothers Knife out and sharpened it up. I love this old knife. Mom and Dad have had since they were married. I did some checking on the knife and it’s history and it was made as WW 2 ended, around 1945. So the knife is very old and still the best knife we have! With the knife sharpened I sliced the Roast thin. The Roast came out so tender, sliced real easy! Seasoned the slices with a pinch of Sea Salt.

 

 

 

I piled the Roast Buffalo into Hoagie Roll and sprinkled with the Capers. Wow what a Sandwich! The Roast Buffalo is just flat out mouth watering delicious! Moist and juicy, it’s just so flavorful. Plenty of leftovers for Sandwiches for Lunch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Sandwich I baked some Fries. I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert later a couple of slices of a Honey Crisp Apple.

 

 

 

 

ROAST BUFFALO SANDWICHES WITH CHIVE CREAM CHEESE

This is a great sandwich for casual meals or picnics. Or, use the same ingredients, slicing baguettes into ovals, for open-faced cocktail sandwiches for your next party! Note: If serving a smaller group, the 1.5# English Cut Roast works nicely. Half your other ingredients and reduce the “hot” cooking time to 9 minutes. You could also make these sandwiches with grilled steak meat too!

Ingredients: Makes 9 to 12 sandwiches
1 – 3 lb. Sirloin Tip Wild Idea Buffalo Roast (Or, 1.5# English Roast)
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – tablespoon sea salt, plus more for finish seasoning
1 – tablespoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon onion powder
1 – teaspoon garlic powder
1 – 8 oz. package cream cheese
8 – green onions, trimmed and chopped
¼ – cup caper juice
Capers
3 – baguettes

Preparation:

1) Rinse roast and pat dry. Rub roast with olive oil and seasonings, cover and rest at room temperature for two hours prior to cooking.

2) Pre-heat oven to 500°. Place prepped roast in a heavy pot or casserole, uncovered.

3) Place in a hot oven, closing door quickly. Reduce heat to 475°and roast for 13 minutes at 475°. Shut the oven off and leave the roast in oven for 2½ hours. DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR.

4) Soften the cream cheese at room temperature and place in food processor with the green onions and caper juice. Pulse until incorporated.

5) Cut the baguettes into 3 or 4 sandwiches and then slice into the side leaving one side of the bread hinged. Gently remove some of the inner soft bread.

6) Spread the chive cream cheese inside of the bread.

7) Remove roast from the oven and shave roast with a slicer or slice thinly with a knife. Season sliced meat with a pinch of sea salt. *You may have pieces or ends that you don’t use that are good to nibble on or to add to a soup.

8) Pile roast buffalo into bread and sprinkle with capers.

For a charming presentation, wrap in parchment and tie with butcher string. This helps with ease in transportation too. The sandwiches can be made in advance and refrigerated. Remove from the refrigerator an hour before serving.

Today’s Menu: Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham,and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns and served. Love those Potatoes and Ham! 86 degrees and humid out today. Spent most of the day doing yard work.

For dinner tonight I prepared a Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

When it’s Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches it’s always Montgomery Inn Hardwood Smoked Pulled Pork with BBQ Sauce. Montgomery Inn is one of the original Barbecue and Ribs Restaurant in the Cincinnati area. It has some of the finest BBQ food anywhere! They also sell their Ribs and Pulled Pork and Chicken at all Kroger. So when it’s Pulled Pork I almost always use the Montgomery Inn brand. Anyway you just heat it in a medium sauce pan until it’s warmed and you have BBQ. It’s the perfect combination of the Pork and the mouth watering Montgomery Inn Sauce that makes this so delicious! Plus it’s only 110 calories and 8 carbs per serving. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun.

 

 


For the Fries I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Chicken Sausage Patty Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin, heated up a al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Patty, and topped it with a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Love these Breakfast Sandwiches! Also I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a hot one out there today! Humid and a high of 97 degrees. Had a few things to do outside around the house and I got those done right after Breakfast. I don’t mind the heat but I can’t take the humidity! Mom went to a Church Picnic about 2:00 this afternoon. She didn’t last long though, just too hot out. Me, I just did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

I had purchased the Cod Loin Fillets at Kroger and had it in the freezer. So I laid the fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder. Then pressed both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into some Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love making Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. The Panko gives the Sandwich a great crunch. The Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish which makes for one excellent Fish Sandwich.

 


For my Fries I’m using my favorite, Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s my 4th day of Fish and Seafood – Shrimp, Walleye, Fried Oysters, and Cod today. For Dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free. In case you haven’t seen it yet there’s a new Cool Whip w/ Oreo’s, too good to be a topping! I plan using it to make a Cool Whip Pie!

Today’s Menu: Chicken Bacon, Mushrooms, and Cheddar Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled an Egg, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Hot, Humid, and Thunderstorms out today. My neighbor came over today and varnished my ramp leading into the Kitchen. So I couldn’t use that until late today. So I stayed in an did some house cleaning. Dusted, vacuumed, cleaned the oven, and so on. For Dinner tonight its a Chicken Bacon, Mushrooms, and Cheddar Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

It’s Burgers for the 2nd day in a row. Yesterday Pastrami and Swiss Buffalo Burgers and today a Chicken Bacon, Mushrooms, and Cheddar Turkey Burger. To make this Burger I’ll need; Jennie – O Turkey 93% Lean Patties, al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon, Mushrooms, Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar, Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Buns, Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 16 minutes flipping it several times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done! As the Burger was cooking, in another skillet, I sauteed my Mushrooms. Sauteed them in Olive Oil, Butter, and seasoned them with Morton’s Light Salt, Ground Cumin, and Parsley. Set both the Burger and Mushrooms off the heat until needed.

 

 

As the Burger was finishing I got another skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

Today’s Menu: Grilled Cheese and Baked Fries

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. I had to have Mom at the Eye Doctor at 9:00. They had to check Mom’s right eye that had the cataract removed, everything looked great! She has the left one done next week. 82 degrees, humid, and thunderstorms outside today. Cleaned the house today, ran the vacuum and dusted. I bought a couple of Sweet Pepper plants and both are loaded with small Peppers coming in. Also have Sweet Basil, Chives, and Rosemary growing. For Dinner Tonight I’m having a Grilled Cheese and Baked Fries.

 

 


Not feeling real good this afternoon. I had a Dinner in mind but I’m keeping it simple tonight, I prepared a Grilled Cheese and Baked Fries. To make my Grilled Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Layered 2 slices of the Sharp Cheddar on top. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. Oh, nothing like a good and toasty Grilled Cheese sometimes!

 


To go with the Grilled Cheese I baked up some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with Morton’s Lite salt and Ground Black Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right.! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served with a side of my favorite Ketchup, Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I lightly fried a couple of al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patties – With a hint of Sage and Thyme. I love these, they’re fully cooked so they fry up in 6 to 8 minutes per side. One of the best Breakfast Patties I’ve found. Great seasoning and the perfect size for my Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffins. So I made me and Mom a couple of Breakfast Sandwiches. I also added a 1/2 a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar to the Sandwich. So Mom had a couple of errands to run and I had to do a few things around the house. I had the wooden deck repaired a while back and my neighbor came over did some touch up painting for me this afternoon. It’s another hot and humid day out again, 99 degrees. Later on I went through my closet and dresser gathering up some clothes that were too small or I just didn’t wear anymore. I then took them to the local Goodwill Store. I also gave them Dad’s old clothes and some things that my Mom had gathered up also. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

To go with the Sausage Dog I baked up some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with Morton’s Lite salt and Ground Black Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right.! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served with a side of my favorite Ketchup, Hunt’s Ketchup.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 


For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy morning out and 52 degrees. Had a high of 84 degrees with rain moving in the late afternoon. After Breakfast I went to Meijer to pick up some Herb and Pepper Plants. I’ve got Sweet Basil and Sweet Peppers growing so far. I love planting stuff and watching it grow. I guess I learned to love that from Grandparents. I was always out on their farm during the Summer. Really miss them and those fun days! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

Purchased the Cod Loin Fillets at Kroger and had them in the freezer. So I laid a fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder. Then pressed both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love making Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. The Panko gives the Sandwich a great crunch. The Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish which makes for one excellent Fish Sandwich.

 


For my Fries I’m using my favorite, Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s my 4th day of Fish and Seafood – Shrimp, Walleye, Fried Oysters, and Cod today. For Dessert later something new, a Skinny Cow Frozen Greek Yogurt Fudgetastic Swirl Bar.

Today’s Menu; Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast I reheated the leftover Skillet Potatoes and Ham from yesterday. To prepare it I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy, Humid and 81 degrees today. After Breakfast I headed off to Meijer to do some grocery shopping. Stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Really too humid for me to do a lot outside today, that and my allergies! We have had bad pollen count all this Spring and my allergies are proof! Did a few things around the house then laid down for a while, bad sinus headache today. For Dinner tonight its a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 


To prepare the Sandwiches I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

 


While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 2 1/2 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! I love Grilled Sandwiches!

 

 


I had already preheated the oven, so as the Sandwich was finishing cooking I baked my Fries, I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s an easy prepared but hot and filling meal. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Green Tea Snapple to drink, love that Snapple!
