A new burger’s coming to town with buns blazing.Wendys

In a twist of events, fast-food chain Wendy’s launched their long-rumored Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger, a premium burger served on a toasted pretzel bun, today. The $4.69 burger includes cheddar cheese, thick-sliced bacon and smoky honey mustard sauce and is sandwiched between a pretzel bun.

Hailed as “the ultimate mash-up of three American loves: pretzel, bacon and cheeseburger” by Craig Bahner, Wendy’s chief marketing officer, the burger performed very well in recent market tests. The burger should be at all locations within a few weeks, and if successful may become a permanent addition to the menu.

Today’s Menu: Ground Pork Pesto Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

Ground Pork BurgersI had a Ground Pork & Pesto Burger along with some Baked Crinkle Fries. The pesto mixed in with the Ground Pork is a perfect match! I had made up 4 of these and froze 3 of them and kept 1 out for dinner. I used Kroger Brand Ground Pork, 180 calories and 0 carbs. I combined the Ground Pork with Buitoni Pesto w/ Basil and Italian Style Bread Crumbs and mixed by hand until everything was well combined and made it into patties. I fried the Burger in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned it with Morton Salt Substitute and Ground Black Pepper. Itopped it with Sauteed Mushrooms and a slice of Sargento Muenster Cheese and served on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun. The Pesto and Pork are a fantastic pairing! You have to give these a try. I left the recipe at the end of the post. I also had a side of Ore Ida Baked Crinkle Fries. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding.

(Makes 4 Burgers)
Ingredients:

1 LB. Ground Pork
1/4 Cup Basil Pesto (You can add more or less to taste)
1/4 cup Italian Style Bread Crumbs
Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper, to taste
4 Slices of Smoked Gouda Cheese or Muenster Cheese, Optional
Lettuce, sliced Tomato optional

Instructions:

* In a mixing bowl add your bread crumbs, pesto, and ground pork. Mix together and form into 4 Burgers
* Spray a large skillet and heat on medium heat and add 1/2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
* Fry the Burgers to your liking, I fried these for about 4 minutes per side.
* Serve on a Bun of your choice (I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Buns). Add Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms, Reduced or Lite Mayo, and a Slice of Cheese.

Today’s Menu:  Grilled Hot Italian Turkey Sausage on Baked Bun w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

Fired up the grill and grilled some Jennie – O Lean Hot Italian Sausages. Love these, not overly spicy or hot but just enough to heat it up a bit! I took Healthy Life Whole Wheat Hot Dog Buns and opened them up and put a slice of Sargento Muenster Cheese between it and baked the buns on 400 degrees until the cheese just started to melt and the buns warmed, about 4 minutes. Served the Sausage on it and topped it with French’s Golden Spicy Mustard. Came out perfect. The Muenster goes fantastic with the Sausage. I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries for a side. For dessert later a Pillsbury Apple Turnover topped with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

Diabetes-Friendly – Sandwich Flat

August 12, 2011 at 12:50 PM | Posted in diabetes, diabetes friendly, Food | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , ,

Another good and informative series of articles from http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/
With this one I’ll be posting all their Bread catergory’s and winners.

Taste-Tested & Diabetes-Friendly

Do you avoid the bread aisle just to escape the confusion felt by so many carb-conscious consumers? It’s true: Bread is a tricky product to buy, especially for people with diabetes. Now you can return to the bread aisle with confidence — thanks to a list of products that recently received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval. Our staff and dietitians picked through the loaves to find those that met our nutritional guidelines. Next we brought in more than 100 people, including PWDs, to taste the brand-hidden products. The top breads, buns, tortillas, and English muffins were awarded the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval.

Nutritional Guidelines
Every bread tested had to meet these health requirements per 2 slices, 1 tortilla, or 1 bun:
— 150 calories or less
— 3 g total fat or less
— 1.5 g saturated fat or less
— 0 g trans fat
— 30 g carb or less
— 300 mg sodium or less
— At least 2 g fiber

Sandwich Flat Finalists

Sandwich flats, deli flats, thin buns — whatever you call them, they are very popular with health-conscious consumers who want a lower-carb alternative to regular bread and buns. Note: Per bun equals top and bottom. The finalists in this category were:

EarthGrains 100% Multi-Grain Thin Buns
Per bun: 100 cal., 1.5 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 150 mg sodium, 21 g carb., 4 g fiber

Arnold Select 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins
Per bun: 100 cal., 1 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 230 mg sodium, 21 g carb., 5 g fiber

Sandwich Flat Winner

And the winner of the sandwich flat category is:
Pepperidge Farm Deli Flats 7 Grain

Per bun: 100 cal., 1 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 170 mg sodium, 19 g carb., 5 g fiber

Taster’s comment: “This one has the best overall flavor. It’s soft, sweet, and nutty.”

Why it won: This sandwich flat was flavorful and had a nice aroma. We like that it contains 5 grams of fiber per bun. Fill it with vegetables and some lean protein for a healthful meal, though one taster noted that it was so good she would eat this bun without anything on it.
