Today’s Menu: Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 62 degrees and mostly sunny today, very windy out again. I had Phantom Pains start around 3:00 this morning and continue until about 1:00 this afternoon! These are so painful and frustrating. So I did very little today but catch up on some sleep and relaxation. Phantom pains just drain you. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had purchased a package of Ground Chicken while at Meijer earlier yesterday. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, 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, Hoffman’s Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Butter Leaf Lettuce and served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun, finally found these Buns at Walmart. I keep them in the freezer and get one out when needed.

 

 

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 Lettuce. 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 Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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. Lean ground chicken is high in protein and offers less saturated fat than ground beef.

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 64 degrees and cloudy, rain showers moving in late. Did laundry after Breakfast. Not a lot going on today. Cleaned off the deck and driveway areas, lot of leaves. Did a few things on the inside. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Kroger Diced Ham, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a high of 66 degrees and sunny out today. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Not much going on so I got the cart out of the shed and did a few things around the yard and then rode around the neighborhood and enjoyed this Fall day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

Its time to flip that burger……………………..

You’ll know to flip the patties when you see liquid pooling on the uncooked surface. Be careful not to char the meat or press down on the patties with a spatula while cooking, you’ll squeeze out all those flavorful juices.

BUFFALO VS BISON

July 26, 2020 at 12:03 PM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment

One question that we often receive is: “What is the difference between buffalo and bison?” Quite simply, both names refer to the same animal. Understandably, this has caused some confusion, but both terms are used interchangeably, and both are accepted.
For some background, the name buffalo is thought to have originated from European explorers who confused the animal they found in the New World with animals they were more familiar with – African or Asian Buffalo. As with the misnaming of Native Americans (Indians), the name stuck. Our National Mammal was only given the name bison after European scientists studied the skeletons years later. Today, the word buffalo is still often used for the American Bison. For example; Buffalo Gap National Grasslands, Buffalo Bill, the Buffalo Nickel, Buffalo Bills and Buffalo, South Dakota… etc.

There are two sub-species of American Bison (Bison bison). The first is the Plains Bison – originally found in huge numbers on the Great Plains. The second is the Wood Bison, which lived in smaller herds on the woody edges of the Great Plains and are now mostly found in the forests of Central Canada.

At Wild Idea Buffalo Company, we raise 100% Grass-Fed Buffalo (Bison bison) that roam much like their ancestors did on the Great Plains of South Dakota and long before the names got muddled.

Learn more about how we raise our buffalo (or “bison” if you prefer 😉) here.

Grilling Burgers……………………..

Once you place your burgers on the grill, the only time they should be touched is when you flip them over. I flip my burgers once and only once. The less you’re poking and prodding at the meat, the better chance you have of keeping all those flavorful juices trapped inside. Enjoy the Burgers!

Widen that Burger…………………………….

When making burgers, always press the patties 1 inch wider than the diameter of your bun with the center being slightly thinner than the edges. As the meat cooks and the fat renders, the patties will shrink and pull to the center of the burger. If you compensate for this during patty construction, you’ll end up with perfectly uniform burger.

Just flip the Burgers once…………………

Constant turning will toughen and dry out the meat, and if you flip too soon, burgers will stick. Cook two minutes per side for rare, three minutes for medium-rare, four minutes for medium, and five minutes for well-done.
