Today’s Menu: Thousand Island Ground Chicken Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared an Egg Suunyside Up, reheated the remaining piece of pork Chop, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cleaned the house today, vacuumed and dusted. Then after Lunch I took Mom’s car to have the oil changed and then took it to washed and the inside vacuumed. Another hot and humid day out. Looks pretty good for an older car. For Dinner tonight its a Thousand Island Ground Chicken Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had purchased a 1 lb. package of Ground Meijer Chicken while there the other day. I had no t had a ground Chicken Burger in a long time and it just sounded good! To make the Burger I’ll need; Pam Cooking Spray, Extra Light Olive Oil, Ground Chicken, Dried Sage (just a pinch), Sea salt, Ground Black Pepper, Litehouse Thousand Island Dressing, Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Buns.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I was able to make 4 Burgers out the package of Ground Chicken. I added just a pinch of Rubbed Dried Sage to the Chicken and formed it into 4 Chicken Patties. I got a 10″ skillet that I lightly coated with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil also. I then preheated the skillet on medium heat. I then fried the patties, 2 at a time. I fried them until the juices ran clear and I had an internal temperature reading of 165 degrees. Flipping the Burgers one time. After flipping it, with about 1 minute of frying time left I added my Cheese on it. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Bun and topped the Burger with Litehouse Thousand Island Dressing. Love the Chicken Burger! Came moist and delicious, nice flavor to it and the Sharp Cheddar and Thousand Island Dressing was perfect with it.

 

To go with my Burger, what else but Baked Fries. 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 Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

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

 

 

Happy Father’s Day to my Dad and all of the Dads out there! To start our Sunday morning off I prepared a Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast for everyone. 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. Topped it off with a Sunnyside Up Egg and also made that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Just love this Skillet Breakfast! Outside it’s a rainy and humid Fater’s Day out there! A bit cooler at 83 degrees but heavy rains at times. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry and that was about it for the day. Caught up on some shows I had recorded. Not much else going on. So for Dinner tonight a I’m preparing a Bacon and Cheese Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries. For Father’s day I went to Outback Steakhouse for Mom and Dad and brought back Dinner for them.

 

I had a few of the Honeysuckle White Lightly Seasoned Turkey Patties left in the freezer so I grabbed one and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. They are 1/4 lb. patties (4 to a package) and 170 calories per burger.

 

 

 

 

For the Bacon I’m using the Kroger Simple Truth Turkey Bacon. It fries or bakes up real easy and has excellent taste.I was going to use more of the Wild Boar Bacon but forgot to lay the package out to thaw from the freezer.

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Turkey Burger, I’m using a medium size skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium. When the skillet was ready I added the Turkey Burger. I fried it about 6 minutes per side. After flipping the Burger I topped it with a slice of Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with a bout 1 minute of cooking time left. I served the Burgers on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. Topped the Turkey Burger with some Heinz 57 Sauce and the Turkey Bacon. The Burgers fried up great and the toppings all worked well together.

 

 

 

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 Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

Honeysuckle White Lightly Seasoned Ground Turkey Patties
Our seasoned turkey patties are great for a last minute barbecue or quick dinner. They’re lightly seasoned for great taste, ready for the grill or stove.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Burger Grilling……..

 
Most people pack the burger patties tight and then flatten them down too much. A loosely packed patty makes for one juicy hamburger! If you pack your burger patties too tight, you run the risk of drying out the meat and making them tough. One thing you should do is make a thumb imprint on top of pattie. The imprint will keep the burgers shape and it will disappear as the burger cooks. Get Grilling!
