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

 

 

I wanted something a little different for Breakfast this morning so I went with a Breakfast Burrito for Breakfast this morning. You can prepare them so many different ingredients. For this one I used 2 medium size Eggs (Scrambled), Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Crumbled), sliced Black and Green Olives, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce, and Old El Paso 6 – Inch Flour Tortillas. Eggs and Bacon are just a natural pairing and the Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce can’t be beat. It just gives everything an unbelievable flavor, nice heat but not over powering.

 

 

 

Another hot and humid day out there! Did some cleaning outside early to avoid the heat and humidity. Not a whole lot to do today, all caught up on everything. Did some work on the computer, ran the scans, deleted some old files and such. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

I hadn’t had a Wild Idea Buffalo Burger in a while now! I just love these Bad Boys of Buffalo Burgers! I made this one combining my two favorites, Wild idea Buffalo and Jennie – O Turkey! I used Jennie – O Turkey Bacon for my Burger topping. Heated up a medium size skillet on medium high heat and fried the Bacon until it was crisp. Removed it from the skillet to a Paper Towel lined plate, and set aside. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it! For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side, after flipping the Burger I added my slice of Cheese, Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with about 1 minute of cooking time left. Topped it with the Turkey Bacon and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun. Love a good Burger and love these Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers, and topped with the Jennie – O Turkey Bacon it just adds to the goodness!

 

To go with my Burger I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries leftover so I prepared them to go with my Burger.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/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

When Poaching Eggs…..

 

Vinegar, or even lemon, helps the egg whites to set more quickly and we get fewer wispy bits when you add a tablespoon or two to the simmering water.

Eggactly…….

 

Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat and cholesterol than the yolk. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper.

Thank you to Lori for passing this hint along…….

 
Didn’t know this one – If you are baking a cake and are an egg short, blend in a couple of tablespoons of mayonnaise.

Reduce the fat……

 
To fry an egg without fat, place a heatproof plate over a pan of boiling water. When the plate is very hot, break an egg into it. The egg should set in about 8 minutes.

 

* I haven’t tried this method, yet!

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is a Honey Mustard Vegetable Scramble. It’s from one of my favorite recipe sites – CooksRecipes (http://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html) The Cooks site is loaded with recipes to please any taste or cuisine. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

 

Honey Mustard Vegetable Scramble

Delicious, wholesome honey-mustard flavored scrambled eggs, loaded with sautéed vegetables, served in warm whole wheat pita bread.

 

 

Recipe Ingredients:

1 teaspoon butter or cooking oil or cooking spray
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/3 cup chopped onions
1/3 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon skim milk
1 tablespoon honey mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 whole wheat pita breads, halved
Additional honey mustard
Lettuce leaves for accompaniment

Cooking Directions:

1 – In 10-inch omelet pan or skillet, heat butter until just hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Add carrots, onions, and peppers. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender but not brown.
2 – In medium bowl, beat together eggs, milk, mustard, salt, if desired, and pepper until blended. Pour over vegetables. Continue cooking over medium heat. As mixture begins to set, gently draw an inverted pancake turner completely across bottom and sides of pan, forming large soft curds. Continue until eggs are thickened and no visible liquid egg remains.
3 – To serve, spread each pita half with mustard, line with lettuce leaves, and spoon in about 1/2 cup of egg mixture.
Makes 2 to 4 servings.

Scrambled Eggs………

 
Always scramble your eggs on low heat. It might take longer for them to cook, but it reduces the risk of browning and overcooking. It also gives you more control over the consistency.

Kick up those Scrambled Eggs in the morning……

 
Eggs can be scrambled with onions, peppers, and tomatoes, but they can also be scrambled with spinach or kale. A sprinkle of cheese can do wonders and I like using leftover chili.
