Today’s Menu: Mushroom and Sharp Cheddar Turkey Burger w/ 3 Bean Salad and Baked Fries

 

 

Turkey Burger 3 Bean Salad Fries 005

 

Oh I hope winter is over, because today has really spoiled everyone around here today. Sunny and in the low 50’s! And they say the 60’s are on the way. We deserve this it’s been one long, cold, and snowy winter. Was able to get outside a couple of times today to enjoy this weather. For dinner tonight I prepared a Sharp Cheddar Turkey Burger w/ 3 Bean Salad and Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I used the Jennie – O Turkey Burger Patties (Lean). Only 180 calories and 9 g fat and already made into fresh patties. Pan fried Turkey Burger 3 Bean Salad Fries 006them in a 1/2 Tbs of Canola Oil and seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun and topped with sautéed sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms and a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar. I also baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries and had a serving of Read’s 3 Bean Salad. It comes in a can and you can prepare it various ways. I just opened the can and put it in a plastic bowl, put the lid on, and set in the refrigerator to chill for a couple of hours or so. I served these cold. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

Outside most of the day, Sunny and 70 degrees! I wanted something easy to fix but also tasty and filling. I went with a Jennie – O Savory Turkey Burger. Fried on medium in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I topped it with some Sauteed  Baby Bella Mushrooms that were also sauteed in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I seasoned them with Ground Smoked Cumin, Sea Salt, Minced Garlic, and Parsley. I also topped it with a slice of Hardwood Smoked Gouda and served on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun.

For a side I had Ore Ida Baked Crinkle Fries. Later for dessert a slice of Pillsbury Nut Bread topped with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

Today’s Recipe: Bleu Cheese and Bacon Turkey Burgers w/ Bleu Cheese Butter and Baked Crinkle Fries

I got the idea for these burgers from Sandra Lee of the Food Network. I made some changes from her original recipe to cut the calories and carbs. I switched the Burger from Beef to Turkey along with switching to Turkey Bacon. The flavor of the Burger is fantastic! I’ll be making more of these this way. I topped it with a Bleu Cheese Butter, another Sandra Lee recipe. I wasn’t too sure about the Butter but I gave it a try and it was delicious. Perfect topping for Burgers and Bleu Cheese lovers!. I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun. For a side I had Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. I left the recipes for the Burger and Bleu Cheese Butter at the end of the post. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Bag of Jolly Time Mini Bag of Pop Corn. Thanks again to Sandra Lee and the Food Network!

Today’s Menu: Turkey Burger w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Hardwood Smoked Gouda Cheese


I had a Jennie – O Turkey Burger that I topped with Sauteed Mushrooms and a slice of Hardwood Smoked Gouda Cheese. Seasoned the Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Black Peppercorn. Gouda is bit higher in calories than my 2% Cheese I normaly have but it’s worth it from time to time. Gouda is a great Cheese for any type of burger or sandwich. Rich and creamy and melts just right on the burgers. I seasoned the Mushrooms with Smoked Cumin, Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Ground Thyme. I had the burger on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun. Served it with Ore Ida Steak Fries that I baked. For dessert later a Yoplait Delight Chocolate Eclair Parfait.

Think Before You Eat: 15 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes

May 30, 2011 at 10:32 AM | Posted in baking, diabetes, diabetes friendly, Food, low calorie, low carb, turkey burger | Leave a comment

I’ll be showing 1 of the 15 foods to avoid along with an healthier alternative recipe. Another of many great articles and recipes from one of my favorite web sites, Diabetic Living On Line.

Think Before You Eat: 15 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes

By Lori Brookhart-Schervish
These top food offenders contain high amounts of fat, sodium, carbohydrate, and calories that may increase your risk of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, uncontrolled blood glucose, and weight gain. The good news is you can indulge in your favorite foods and still eat healthfully with our satisfying and delicious alternatives.

#8 Processed Lunch Meat

Think making a sandwich for lunch is a safe bet? Unfortunately, processed lunch meat is full of sodium. Read the food nutrition labels printed on the packages you buy in the store, or ask your deli attendant to tell you the nutrition information for fresh-sliced meat.

Cut the sodium by slicing meat you’ve roasted at home or by asking specifically for meats lower in sodium.

Enjoy sandwiches for lunch or dinner by following our healthy sandwich recipes, which were made specifically for people with diabetes:

Thai Turkey Burgers
Thai seasoning is a blend of seasonings that is reminiscent of the classic flavors of Thai cooking. The ingredients vary widely by brand but often include garlic, coriander, onion, cilantro, and pepper. Look for it at food specialty stores or larger supermarkets.
SERVINGS: 6 servings
CARB GRAMS PER SERVING: 23

1/4     cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, or 1 egg, beaten
1/4     cup fine dry bread crumbs
1     teaspoon Thai seasoning or curry powder
1     pound uncooked ground turkey breast
6      whole grain cocktail-size hamburger buns, split and toasted
3/4     cup fresh basil leaves
2     tablespoons purchased peanut dipping sauce
1     medium mango, pitted, peeled, and sliced

1. In a medium bowl, combine egg product or egg, bread crumbs, and Thai seasoning or curry powder. Add ground turkey breast; mix well. Shape into six 3/4-inch-thick patties.

2. Place patties on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium goals. Grill for 14 to 18 minutes or until done (165 degree F),* turning once.

3. To serve burgers, top bottom half of each bun with some of the basil. Add patties. Spoon peanut dipping sauce over patties; add mango slices and bun tops. Makes 6 servings.

*Note: The internal color of a burger is not a reliable way to indicate if it is done. A turkey patty cooked to 165 degree F is safe, regardless of color. To measure if the patty is done, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
