Today’s Menu: Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Then I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns along with frying up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had a brief morning passing shower but it went through quickly. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned up around the deck and driveway areas. After Lunch headed over to see Dad for a while. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

Time to satisfy that Buffalo Burger craving! And like most of the time I used the Wild Idea Buffalo Buffalo Burger. I always have a couple of packages of them in the freezer so I grabbed one of the patties and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. After I flipped it, I topped it with a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese and then served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. Lean and delicious, love these Buffalo Burgers!

 

 


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, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a bowl of Smart Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the week is Pasta alla Carrettiera with Italian Buffalo Meatballs. Using 1 pound package Wild Idea Italian Buffalo Sausage. Take your Spaghetti and Meatballs to new level with this recipe. It’s from Jill O’Brien of Wild Idea Buffalo. http://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

 

Pasta alla Carrettiera with Italian Buffalo Meatballs (serves 4)
This dish is named after the people who drove food and wine carts in Italy. It is a slightly spicy red sauce, with garlic and basil, and is typically served over a thicker style of pasta. My favorite rendition of this dish also had hints of parsley and mint, which made for lingering, memorable flavors. After a little research, and substituting a few of the more difficult to find ingredients with like alternatives, I thought I might be able to come close to duplicating it. The only thing missing was Wild Idea’s artisan, Italian Buffalo Sausage, and I knew just where to go for that. This simple dish is packed with flavor and very easy to prepare. The perfect solution, for a stress free, delicious dinner!

 

 

Ingredients:
1 – 1 pound package Wild Idea Italian Buffalo Sausage
3 – tablespoons olive oil
3 – cloves garlic, about 1 tablespoon
½ – teaspoon chili flake, or pepperoncino (dried Italian chili pepper)
½ – cup basil, finely chopped
2 – tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
1 – tablespoon mint, finely chopped
1 – 28 ounce can whole *San Marzano Tomatoes, flash processed, *they’re the best
1 – teaspoon salt
2 – teaspoons sugar
1 – lemon, juiced, about ¼ cup
1 – cup freshly grated, Parmigiano Reggiano, or Porcini cheese
1 – 12 ounce box of Casarecce pasta, Pici pasta, or thick Spaghetti, cooked el dente, reserve 1 cup pasta water

Preparation:
1) Divide Wild Idea Italian Buffalo sausage into 24 pieces and roll into meatballs. Pour one of the tablespoons of olive oil on a baking sheet and roll the meatballs in the oil. Cover and set-aside until you are ready to broil.
2) In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the remaining tablespoons of olive oil. Add the garlic, and toss or stir regularly, until tender, about 3 minutes.
3) Add the basil, parsley, and half of the mint to the pan. Sauté and stir for 1 minute.
4) Add the tomatoes, salt, sugar and lemon juice and stir to incorporate. Bring to a gentle boil, cook for 5 minutes and then add the remaining mint. *Sauce can be made ahead and reheated.
5) During step 4, or right before serving, place the prepped bison meatballs on the second rack from the top of a preheated broiler, and broil the meat balls for about 5 minutes or until nicely browned.
6) Simultaneously bring the reserved pasta water to a boil. Add the prepared pasta, and toss to reheat.
7) Drain pasta, transfer to a bowl and add ½ cup of the grated cheese. Toss to incorporate.
8) Place desired amounts of pasta on to plates and cover with ¾ cup or desired amount of sauce. Serve with the hot Italian Bison meatballs and garnish with remaining grated cheese and additional fresh herbs. Delizioso!

Fire the grill up and get the skewers ready for this recipe. A Summertime grilling treat from Jill O’Brien of Wild Idea Buffalo.

B.B.Q. Summer Sausage and Shrimp Skewers

By: Jill O’Brien
Simple summertime grilling recipes that don’t skimp on the “wow” factor are pretty hard to beat. The ingredient combination of this recipe is sensational, but quality ingredients are the key. The number of skewers will depend upon the size of shrimp you purchase. 16 to 24 sized shrimp per pound work well, but larger would be fine too. Seek out wild caught shrimp, no other will do, and of course Wild Idea’s Bison Summer Sausage!
Ingredients:
8 – ounces Wild Idea Buffalo Summer Sausage
1 – pound wild caught shrimp (16 to 24 size), peeled & deveined
1 – lemon, cut into wedges
1 – teaspoon lemon pepper
1 to 2 mango’s, peeled and cut into thick pieces
2 – tablespoons olive oil
½ – cup of your favorite B.B.Q. sauce
Wooden skewers, soaked in water
Cilantro for garnish

Preparation:
1) Cut Wild Idea Buffalo Summer Sausage into circle slices and then into pie pieces, in keeping with the size of your shrimp. You may have extra summer sausage. Cover and set aside.
2) Peel, devein, and rinse shrimp. Blot dry with a paper towel. Place in a bowl and squeeze half of the lemon wedges over the shrimp, and season with the lemon pepper. Toss to incorporate and allow to rest for 20 minutes.
3) Skewer the tail part of the shrimp on first, then the summer sausage, securing the meatier part of the shrimp around the summer sausage. Add a piece of mango to the end of the skewer. *The mango pieces can also be added after the grilling.
4) Place on pan and drizzle with olive oil.
5) Grill over medium high heat, for 30 seconds each side, closing grill while grilling. Repeat two more times brushing with B.B.Q sauce while turning.
6) Arrange skewers on a platter and squeeze with additional lemon slices. Garnish with cilantro and drizzle with additional warmed B.B.Q. sauce if desired.

Today’s Menu: BBQ Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

 

 

Started my day off with a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, a Scrambled Egg, 2 Jimmy Dean Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast did some work outside. Got the cart out and went around the house spraying the yard and flower beds for weeds, we have a lot of them this year. Then after Lunch me and Mom had an update meeting with the rehab center. They said there is a possibility that Dad be put in assisted living. It’s a very tough decision, not sure what we are going to do. Back home finished up outside. Nice day out, 80 degrees and mostly sunny. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a BBQ Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

PAPPARDELLE AND PESTO MEATBALLS

A fresh spin on traditional spaghetti and meatballs. Pappardelle (pronounced; Pop a dell a) noodles although egg based, are mostly very light, but this will depend on the brand you can find. My favorites are Rustichella D’arbruzzo or DeCecco. This recipe is a wonderful combination of flavors. For a complete meal I accompanied this dish with a Citrus Salad with Orange Chev Vinaigrette (recipe included with purchase upon request) and crusty bread. Great for a family style dinner – that kids will love, or sophisticated enough to serve at your next dinner party.

All the components make this recipe seem complicated, but the preparation is very easy and does not take a lot of time. For a super short-cut, you could buy ready-made pesto. Bon Appetito!

 

 

Meatball Ingredients:
1 – pound Wild Idea Ground Buffalo
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1/3 – cup pesto (recipe follows)
4 – ounces fresh Mozzarella, torn or shredded

1 – Break ground buffalo apart in a pie pan or bowl, and press out flat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2 – Spoon pesto over the top of the meat and cover with the shredded mozzarella.
3 – Fold the meat into itself and mix together with hands until all ingredients are equally distributed.
4 – Form meat into silver dollar sized meatballs, or size of your liking and place on lightly oiled baking sheet.
5 – Chill meatballs for one hour in the refrigerator.
6 – Position oven rack on top rung and preheat oven to broil.
7 – For best browning, brush chilled meat balls with a little melted butter.
8 – Broil meatballs for about 7 minutes or until browned. *For larger meatballs increase your cooking time based on size.

Quick Tomato Sauce Ingredients:
1 – 28oz. can whole stewed Italian tomatoes
1 – 28 oz. can crushed Italian tomatoes
1 – teaspoon garlic powder
1 – teaspoon crushed fennel
1 – teaspoon oregano
1 – teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – pinch chili flake
1 – lemon, juiced *1/4 cup
1 – teaspoon balsamic syrup
2 – tablespoons sugar

Preparation:

1 – In deep pot, over medium high heat, add stewed tomatoes and smash with a potato masher, breaking tomatoes into pieces.
2 – Add crushed tomatoes and bring to a light boil.
Add remaining ingredients, stirring to incorporate.
3 – Reduce heat to simmer and allow tomato sauce to thicken, about 15 minutes or until desired consistency is achieved.
4 – Season to taste with a pinch more of salt and an additional squeeze of lemon or to your liking.

Pappardelle Ingredients:
12 – ounces Pappardelle
4 – quarts water
2 – tablespoons salt
1/2 – cup pesto, or more if you prefer – room temperature

Preparation:

1 – Fill a large pot with water and salt and bring to a boil.
2 – Add Pappardelle to the pot and cook uncovered for 7 minutes.
3 – Remove from heat and strain water from the pot, leaving about 1 to 2 tablespoons of water in the pot. Do not return to heat.
4 – Lightly warm pesto in microwave for 30 seconds.
5 – Add pesto to the Pappardelle and toss gently.

Other Recipe Ingredients:
½ – cup Italian parsley, chopped
Parmigiano Reggiano, shaved

Entrée Assembly:

* Place pesto coated Pappardelle on plates or in a bowl.
* Cover with tomato sauce and top with pesto meatballs.
* Garnish with parsley and shaved Parmigiano Reggiano.

Basil Pesto
I am a non-pine-nut person. If you prefer them in your pesto, simply add them to the recipe. Recipe can easily be cut in half.

Ingredients:
2 – cups fresh basil leaves, packed
2 – cups shredded parmesan cheese
3 – garlic cloves, chopped
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon pepper (*I like a little more)
1 – tablespoon lemon juice (*I like a little more)1 – cup olive oil

* Place all ingredients in blender and puree until smooth. Refrigerate unused amounts for another use (and there are many).

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer and Kroger to pick up a few items for Mom and myself. Then stopped at McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Back home had Lunch and afterward headed over to see Dad. He’s not looking too good at all right now, only pray that he gets better. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 
Time to satisfy my Buffalo Burger craving! I used the Wild Idea Buffalo Buffalo Burger. I always have a couple of packages of them in the freezer so I grabbed one of the patties and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. After I flipped it, I topped it with a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese and then served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. Lean and delicious, love these Buffalo Burgers!

 

 

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, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Vegetarian Baked Beans and Baked Potato

 

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin (lightly buttered), Scrambled 2 Eggs, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. About 75 degrees out there again but mostly cloudy with showers, lot of rain lately around here. After Breakfast I headed up to the hospital to see Dad. He feels good but he so weak, I don’t know what we are going to do? We would like to have him here but he’s so weak he just can’t. We sure hope to keep him out of an assisted living center but it may be our only choice. Back at home did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Vegetarian Baked Beans and Baked Potato.

 

 

I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1/2 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary, McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. As the Steak rested I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, cooked it 4 1/2 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo I’ve ever had. As always when cooking Buffalo, keep an eye on it will get done quickly. They cook faster than marbled meat and when overcooked will be tough and dry. Buffalo is best cooked medium-rare or rare. I topped it with some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 


For one side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

 

Then for another side I prepared some Bush’s Reduced Sodium Vegetarian Baked Beans. I had these sometime back and fell in love with the flavor and taste of the Vegetarian Beans! Only 130 calories, 0 fat, and 24 net carbs per serving. To prepare the; just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Beans! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
