Today’s Menu: Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start this beautiful morning off I baked a small 5 Biscuit can of Pillsbury Flakey Biscuits. I also heated up 5 Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Patties. And I have my Sausage Breakfast Sandwich! I also added a 1/4 slice of Hoffman’s Super Sharp Cheese. Had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s another perfect day out there today! A high of 79 degrees, Sunny and low humidity. So beautiful out! Got the cart out did yard work most of the day. I also helped a neighbor of ours with his yard. So good to be out here enjoying this weather! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I had purchased a package of Smart Ground Chicken from Meijer a while back and had it in the freezer. I set the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Litehouse Poultry Herb Seasoning, McCormick’s Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Meijer Italian Style Bread Crumbs. For toppings I’m using Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/Olive Oil, Heinz 57 Sauce, John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Hoffman Super Sharp Cheese. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun.

 

First thing I did was fry the Bacon. I’m using John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon. I rarely use John Morrell but you have to use what you can find in stock right now at the stores. John Morrell Bacon is great tasting Bacon, just don’t use it. So I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam cooking Spray. Then heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Bacon. Mom loves Bacon so I just fried the whole package. Fried up great and was delicious! I set it aside until I needed it.

 

Next I made my Chicken Burger patties. To prepare them, in a large bowl, combine Chicken, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Italian Style Bread Crumbs. The Seasonings amount are to taste and 2 tablespoons of the Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Make a little depression with your thumb in the center of each burger so they cook evenly. Divide the mixture into 4 patties.

 

In a Cast Iron Skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add burger patties and cook, flipping once, until golden and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with Cheddar and cook until just started melting, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer patties to a plate. Serve on the Buns and top with Mayo, Heinz 57 Sauce, and the Bacon. The Ground Chicken Burger is juicy, moist, and flavorful! I’ll have to start having a lot more often!

 

To go with the Chicken Burger I prepared Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Heinz 57 Sauce. For Dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smart Ground Chicken
Ground chicken is a healthy start for any meal since one serving (100 grams, or about 3 ounces) meets one’s protein needs for a nutritious meal – plus it’s lower in calories and fat than many meat sources.

Today’s Menu: Turkey and Swiss Cheese Club Sandwich w/ Chips

 

For Breakfast I prepared Mom’s favorite, Sausage Breakfast Biscuits. I baked a small container of Pillsbury Flaky Biscuits and for the Sausage I heated up 5 Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Patties. I also had 1/4 slices of Boar’s Head Longhorn Colby Cheese to top the Patties. What a perfect day out there today, 85 degrees and sunny! Got some work done inside and then it was outside the rest of the day! Got the cart out and did yard work. Our Wood Chips were delivered yesterday. A guy that cuts our lawn gave me a hand on getting 10 bags of out in the flower beds. Then we got 2 of our neighbors Wood Chips out in their flower beds. Rode around in the cart and enjoyed this perfect Spring Day! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey and Swiss Cheese Club Sandwich w/ Reduced Fat Potato Chips Chips.

 

I started by frying my Bacon. I used Kroger Private Selection Double Smoked Center Cut Bacon. First time using this Bacon. It fried up real good, good tasting Bacon.

 

For the Turkey I used Boar’s Head New Bold Pitcraft Slow Smoked Turkey Breast. I had seen the TV Commercials and pictures of it online and I had to try it! Boar’s Head is my favorite Deli Sliced Meats, always fresh and Delicious! The New Turkey is no different, Delicious. The Seasoning is spot on and you get that hint of Mesquite and the Rub. The Rub consists of Paprika, Brown  Sugar and Mexican Chilies, including Guajillo Peppers. Another winning Deli Slice from Boar’s Head!

 

I also used Private Selection Double Smoked Center Cut Bacon, Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese, Lettuce and Kraft Light Mayo w/ Olive Oil. For the Bread I’m using my new favorite Bread of choice, Aunt Millie’s Carb Smart 1 Carb Wheat Bread. This Bread is so good! The freshest and softest Bread I’ve found. Plus it’s 30 calories and 1 carb per slice.

 

To make the Sandwich was very easy. I started by gathering all my ingredients. Next I toasted the Bread. Then I added my toppings and ingredients. I spread the Mayo on both slices of the Toast. On the bottom slice of Toast I added the Lettuce, Turkey, the Swiss Cheese and the Bacon. One Delicious Sandwich! I also had some Mike Sells Reduced Fat Potato Chips. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take Care All and Stay Safe!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boar’s Head New Bold Pitcraft Slow Smoked Turkey Breast

Slow smoked with real mesquite wood chips to give it a real pit-smoked flavor, Boar’s Head Bold PitCraft Slow Smoked Turkey Breast is seasoned with an authentic dry rub that consists of paprika, brown sugar and Mexican chilies, including Guajillo Peppers.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Buffalo Cheese and Bacon Burger and Baked Fries

 

To start the day off I toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees and mostly sunny out today. Got the cart, rake, leaf blower and grass seed out of the shed. Raked the yard and then took the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then took the blower and got the flower beds. Then finished sowing some grass seed in few spots around the yard. Love getting out in this weather! For Dinner tonight Grilled Buffalo Cheese and Bacon Burger and Baked Fries.

 

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! I had the Burger in the freezer so I laid in the fridge overnight to thaw. Uncovered the grill and cleaned it up. Used a Paper Towel and rubbed it in some Extra Light Olive Oil. Then rubbed the Grill Grate down with it. Then fired up the Grill! Seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. With the Grill heated I started grilling. I grilled the Buffalo Burger and Brat and Hot Dog for Mom. I grilled the Burger about 3 minutes and flipped it over. After 2 minutes I added a slice of Boar’s Head Yellow Vermont Cheddar and cooked it another 1 minute. Added the al fresco Chicken Bacon that I had prepared earlier and done! Served the Burger on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious, as all the Wild Idea Products are. Just love a good Burger, Buffalo Burger! Plus that added flavor by grilling it.

 

To go with my Burger I prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Bacon and American Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a couple Eggo’s Nurti Grain Waffles. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. It’s a Chilly Morning out there this morning, 39 degrees! But the rain has finally stopped and it was cloudy, very windy, and 48 degrees for the day. I went to Meijer after Breakfast, Mom needed a few items. Stopped by McDonald’s on the way back home and picked up Breakfast for her. Well our new drainage system that I had installed along the side of driveway works great! Good flow and no flooding. After Lunch I got the rake and leaf blower out cleaned off the deck and driveway. Then did a little yard work in the front yard. For Dinner tonight a Chicken Bacon and American Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

I had bought Mom some Omaha Steaks Burgers, yes I’m using Beef! I rarely use Beef but Mom had tried these a while back so I purchased a box for her. They come frozen 6 (4 oz.) burgers. So I laid a couple of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I’ll be needing the Burgers, Extra Light Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper, al fresco Chicken Bacon, Kraft Deli Style American Cheese, and Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Buns. The Bacon was already cooked I just heated it up a bit.

 

To prepare the Burgers I preheat a small amount of the Olive Oil in non-stick pan over medium heat. Add burgers, pan frying for 6-8 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 160°F., checked by a meat thermometer. After 4 minutes I flipped the Burgers and with 1 minute of cooking time left I added a 1/2 slice of the American Cheese.

 

I served the Burgers on the Healthy Life Buns. I topped the Burgers with the al fresco Chicken Bacon and served! The Burger was delicious! Nicely seasoned and juicy! The Bacon and Cheese worked perfect. I guess I’ll have to have Beef a bit more often, good job Omaha Steaks!

 

 

I also baked our favorite, 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 Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

To start my day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees and partly cloudy out today, a bit cooler and low humidity. After my Tea I headed to Kroger for Mom. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home I did a load of laundry and then outside to do some yard work. Got the cart, rake, shovel, and Leaf Blower out of the shed. Pulled up a couple of dead bushes on the side of the house. Then cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

So 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 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the 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!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet sprayed it the Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 14 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!

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo, you have to try it! I tried the Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise on the last Turkey Burger and loved it! It’s nice and Creamy with excellent flavor and a nice little kick to it!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a few slices of a Honeycrisp Apple.

I really enjoyed a new Bacon I tried this morning, al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. I came across it at Meijer yesterday. I also found a Turkey Bacon that I’m going to try also. The Chicken Bacon looked to be real lean. It’s 30 calories and 1 carb per slice. It fries up great and crispy! Excellent flavor. I’ll be purchasing more of this, give it a try! – al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon

Today’s Menu: Bacon Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off! One delicious Breakfast! Outside partly cloudy and 84 degrees. Took Mom’s car up to be washed and the inside cleaned. Then stopped by the bank. Next took my car up to have it washed and stopped and got gas. Not a lot going on today, watched some College Football. For Dinner tonight a Bacon Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I’m having another one of the Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER. I’ve had a couple of these now and love them! This time I’m adding a couple of slices of Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon. Love these new Wild Idea Buffalo Products. It comes frozen and there’s 3 – 1/3 lb. Burger Patties. The Premium Ground Buffalo is mixed with Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese, and seasoning. I’ll be preparing it as I do all Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I’ll need; Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon (2 slices), Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce, and a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun.

 

 

 

 

To start it I seasoned it with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, lightly seasoned. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. As the Burger was cooking I fried the 2 slices of the Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon. To serve the Burger I grabbed the Bun and added the Burger, topped it with some of the BBQ Sauce, and topped it with the Bacon. Every bite you can taste the Bacon and the Blue Cheese and there was bits of the Buffalo Bacon throughout the Burger. The added Bacon worked great! This Burger is quickly becoming a favorite! Just a flat out excellent Burger!

 

 

Then for a side I baked some 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! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served them with a sprinkle of Crumbled Blue Cheese on top. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER (3 BURGER PER LB)
Our 100% prairie grass-fed Premium Ground Buffalo mixed with our 100% Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese and just the right amount of seasoning! For additional flavor try it with grape jelly or your favorite preserve – absolutely scrumptious! We did the work for you and… you’re welcome! Three one-third pound handcrafted burgers per package.

Today’s Menu: “Not So Sloppy” Buffalo Joes Sliders w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning something a little different, Wild Boar Bacon! I had ordered some from SayersBrook Bison Ranch and just received my order yesterday afternoon. Couldn’t wait to try it so I’m having it now. The slices were not as long as most Bacon Slices, but it made no difference. It fried up as normal Bacon and tasted great! Wild Boar Bacon has a richer taste and is leaner than Pork Bacon. Really enjoyed this and will have it again. Along with the Bacon I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and my usual cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

 

After Breakfast did a few chores around the house and finished up a load of laundry for Mom. Then after Lunch I went out to the shed and pulled out the rest of the deck furniture and cleaned it up. Rain moved back in again, a high in the 60’s. For dinner tonight I prepared “Not So Sloppy” Buffalo Joes Sliders w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

It’s Sloppy Joe Night tonight for dinner! A delicious and a super easy meal to make. To make the Sloppy Joes I used a 1 lb. package of Wild Idea Buffalo Ground Round, 1 jar of Hormel Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce, and Kroger Lite Wheat Buns. Using Buffalo, or Bison, instead of Beef will give your Sloppy Joe a deeper and richer flavor. Really looking forward to tonight’s Dinner, been a while since I’ve had these!

 

 

 

 

Using a large skillet to brown the Buffalo in I seasoned it with Morton’s Salt Substitute, Ground Black Pepper, and Roasted Ground Cumin. After the Buffalo was browned and no longer pink I added the jar of Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce stirring and making sure the Sauce and Buffalo was well mixed. Simmer until it’s warm, and served. I love the Hormel Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce. It’s a good thick sauce well seasoned with Spices, Onions, Green Peppers among other ingredients (70 calories and 15 carbs per serving). I served them this time on Kroger 100% Whole Wheat Sliders Mini Buns. Sloppy Joes make a perfect Slider! Another delicious dish using Wild Idea Buffalo.

 

For a side I baked some 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. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Smart Pop – Pop Corn.

 

 

 

 

 
Hormel Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce

Richer and Thicker and Far From Ordinary

Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce is as distinctive as its name. Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce has a hint of barbecue flavor and is richer and thicker than other sloppy joe sauces.

Since its beginning in 1985, there’s been one very graphic way to show the thick and rich texture of Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce: the “drip test.” When you hold up a sloppy joe made with Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce, there are no drips. It’s that rich and thick.

Today’s Menu: Dutch Smoked Gouda, Bacon, Pork Burger w/ Baked Shoestring Fries

 

 
Stayed up a little late last night watching the terrible and cowardly acts of violence in Dallas. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the slain officers and the entire Dallas Police Force. Also my prayers go out to the gentlemen’s family up in Minnesota that was needlessly killed by an officer. The state of this Country is a result of the leadership of this Country. I’ll say no more on that subject.

 
I prepared a family favorite for everyone this morning for Breakfast, Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Dutch Smoked Gouda, Bacon, Pork Burger w Baked Shoestring Fries 004Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. Just love this skillet meal! After Breakfast I ran the vacuum real quick and then outside for a little work. I wanted to try to work outside early before the humidity got too bad, but it was already bad out there earl. I trimmed the vine we have that grows down the side of our driveway. The vine had started to overtake part of the drive. That taken care of stayed in most of the day and got a few little things done around the house. So for Dinner tonight it’s a Dutch Smoked Gouda, Bacon, Pork Burger w/ Baked Shoestring Fries.

 

 

Dutch Smoked Gouda, Bacon, Pork Burger w Baked Shoestring Fries 001

I seen a video and recipes on Face Book with Pork Burgers and they looked fantastic. So it had been a while since I made Pork Burgers and decided to pick up some Ground Pork while at Kroger yesterday. To make the Burgers I’ll need; 1 lb. package of Ground Pork, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Cumin, Mustard Powder, Dried Cilantro Leaves, Shaved Honey Crisp Apple, Simple Truth Hardwood Smoked Bacon, Boar’s Head Smoked Gouda Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Buns.

 

 

 

I first fried my Bacon. I used Simple Truth Hardwood Smoked Bacon. Using a large skillet, I fried the Bacon until crisp. Removed the Bacon and placed it on a plate and set aside. With a 1 lb. package of Ground Pork you can easily Dutch Smoked Gouda, Bacon, Pork Burger w Baked Shoestring Fries 002get 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 about a minute before Dutch Smoked Gouda, Bacon, Pork Burger w Baked Shoestring Fries 003removing from them pan. I’m using Smoked Gouda 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 Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Buns. The Burgers were topped with Shaved Apple Smoked Gouda Cheese, Boston Bib Lettuce, Smoked Bacon, and Hellman’s Lite Mayonnaise. We have us a Burger!! All the Spices have given the Burger fantastic flavor. Then with the added Shaved Apple, Mayo, Bacon, Lettuce it made it perfect. Love these Burgers!

Then to go with Burgers I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. The more I have these the more I’m liking them! Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 18 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fries! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
