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

 

Great Range Bison Burger 001

 

 

Back to a beautiful, sunny, Autumn Day, in the 20’s this morning starting out though. Not much going on today, most of my friends are in downtown Cincinnati for the Bengals late afternoon Football Game. For dinner it was a Cheddar Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 
I used Great Range Ground Bison. I seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and pan fried it in Canola Oil, about 4 minutes per side. Came out medium rare with a nice char on the outside with a little pink and juicy in the middle! I made that switch to Buffalo, or Bison, quite a while back and have never missed Beef. I just love the taste of Buffalo over Beef and the way it cooks up. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bun and topped the Burger with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar. For a side I baked up some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Cheddar Turkey Burger and Baked Fries

 

Grilled Turkey Burger 010
A perfect Autumn day out today! It’s in the low 60’s and sunny. Went to the store early and then yard work. I got the 4 wheel mobility scooter out and helped Mom rake the leaves, do some final trimming, and put away some of the Summer lounge chairs. Love getting out like that and doing work, thankfully I have that scooter that lets me get out like that and help out! For dinner I was able to fire up the grill up one last time, it will be retired after this use. For dinner, Grilled Cheddar Turkey Burger and Baked Fries.

 

 

 
I used Jennie – O Turkey Burger Patties (Lean). Only 180 calories and 9 g fat and already made into patties. I seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and grilled it about 17 minutes, flipping three times. I served the burger on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun and topped with a slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar. Anything tastes better grilled, now I just have to get a better grill to do it on. I also baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served these with a side Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding.

Fall Harvest: Potatoes

October 13, 2013 at 9:32 AM | Posted in potatoes | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , ,
Potato cultivars appear in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes

Potato cultivars appear in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes

 

Potatoes are excellent storage vegetables, but most varieties are harvested in the fall. Potatoes are harvested from spring (new potatoes) through fall, and are an excellent storage vegetable to hold through winter. The thin-skinned, uncured new potatoes of spring and summer should be prepared differently from the more mature potatoes harvested in fall or stored over winter. Here are hearty, satisfying dishes featuring such potatoes.

 

 

The potato is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial Solanum tuberosum of the Nightshade family. The word may refer to the plant itself as well as the edible tuber. In the region of the Andes, there are some other closely related cultivated potato species. Potatoes were introduced outside the Andes region four centuries ago, and have become an integral part of much of the world’s cuisine. It is the world’s fourth-largest food crop, following rice, wheat and maize. Long-term storage of potatoes requires specialised care in cold warehouses.
Wild potato species occur throughout the Americas, from the United States to southern Chile. The potato was originally believed to have been domesticated independently in multiple locations, but later genetic testing of the wide variety of cultivars and wild species proved a single origin for potatoes in the area of present-day southern Peru and extreme northwestern Bolivia (from a species in the Solanum brevicaule complex), where they were domesticated 7,000–10,000 years ago. Following centuries of selective breeding, there are now over a thousand different types of potatoes.[6] Of these subspecies, a variety that at one point grew in the Chiloé Archipelago (the potato’s south-central Chilean sub-center of origin) left its germplasm on over 99% of the cultivated potatoes worldwide.
The annual diet of an average global citizen in the first decade of the 21st century included about 33 kg (73 lb) of potato. However, the local importance of potato is extremely variable and rapidly changing. It remains an essential crop in Europe (especially eastern and central Europe), where per capita production is still the highest in the world, but the most rapid expansion over the past few decades has occurred in southern and eastern Asia. China is now the world’s largest potato-producing country, and nearly a third of the world’s potatoes are harvested in China and India.

 

Potato plants

Potato plants

 
The potato contains vitamins and minerals, as well as an assortment of phytochemicals, such as carotenoids and natural phenols. Chlorogenic acid constitutes up to 90% of the potato tuber natural phenols. Others found in potatoes are 4-O-caffeoylquinic acid (crypto-chlorogenic acid), 5-O-caffeoylquinic (neo-chlorogenic acid), 3,4-dicaffeoylquinic and 3,5-dicaffeoylquinic acids. A medium-size 150 g (5.3 oz) potato with the skin provides 27 mg of vitamin C (45% of the Daily Value (DV)), 620 mg of potassium (18% of DV), 0.2 mg vitamin B6 (10% of DV) and trace amounts of thiamin, riboflavin, folate, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and zinc. The fiber content of a potato with skin (2 g) is equivalent to that of many whole grain breads, pastas, and cereals.
The potato is best known for its carbohydrate content (approximately 26 grams in a medium potato). The predominant form of this carbohydrate is starch. A small but significant portion of this starch is resistant to digestion by enzymes in the stomach and small intestine, and so reaches the large intestine essentially intact. This resistant starch is considered to have similar physiological effects and health benefits as fiber: It provides bulk, offers protection against colon cancer, improves glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity, lowers plasma cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations, increases satiety, and possibly even reduces fat storage. The amount of resistant starch in potatoes depends much on preparation methods. Cooking and then cooling potatoes significantly increases resistant starch. For example, cooked potato starch contains about 7% resistant starch, which increases to about 13% upon cooling.
The cooking method used can significantly affect the nutrient availability of the potato.
Potatoes are often broadly classified as high on the glycemic index (GI) and so are often excluded from the diets of individuals trying to follow a low-GI diet. In fact, the GI of potatoes can vary considerably depending on type (such as red, russet, white, or Prince Edward), origin (where it was grown), preparation methods (i.e., cooking method, whether it is eaten hot or cold, whether it is mashed or cubed or consumed whole, etc.), and with what it is consumed (i.e., the addition of various high-fat or high-protein toppings).
In the UK, potatoes are not considered by the NHS as counting towards the five portions of fruit and vegetables diet.

Russet potatoes with sprouts

* Potatoes are used to brew alcoholic beverages such as vodka, potcheen, or akvavit.
* They are also used as food for domestic animals.
* Potato starch is used in the food industry as, for example, thickeners and binders of soups and sauces, in the textile industry, as adhesives, and for the manufacturing of papers and boards.
* Maine companies are exploring the possibilities of using waste potatoes to obtain polylactic acid for use in plastic products; other research projects seek ways to use the starch as a base for biodegradable packaging.
* Potato skins, along with honey, are a folk remedy for burns in India. Burn centers in India have experimented with the use of the thin outer skin layer to protect burns while healing.
* Potatoes (mainly Russets) are commonly used in plant research. The consistent parenchyma tissue, the clonal nature of the plant and the low metabolic activity provide a very nice “model tissue” for experimentation. Wound-response studies are often done on potato tuber tissue, as are electron transport experiments. In this respect, potato tuber tissue is similar to Drosophila melanogaster, Caenorhabditis elegans and Escherichia coli: they are all “standard” research organisms.

 

 

Various potato dishes

Various potato dishes

Potatoes are prepared in many ways: skin-on or peeled, whole or cut up, with seasonings or without. The only requirement involves cooking to swell the starch granules. Most potato dishes are served hot, but some are first cooked, then served cold, notably potato salad and potato chips/crisps.
Common dishes are: mashed potatoes, which are first boiled (usually peeled), and then mashed with milk or yogurt and butter; whole baked potatoes; boiled or steamed potatoes; French-fried potatoes or chips; cut into cubes and roasted; scalloped, diced, or sliced and fried (home fries); grated into small thin strips and fried (hash browns); grated and formed into dumplings, Rösti or potato pancakes. Unlike many foods, potatoes can also be easily cooked in a microwave oven and still retain nearly all of their nutritional value, provided they are covered in ventilated plastic wrap to prevent moisture from escaping; this method produces a meal very similar to a steamed potato, while retaining the appearance of a conventionally baked potato. Potato chunks also commonly appear as a stew ingredient.
Potatoes are boiled between 10 and 25 minutes, depending on size and type, to become soft.

 

 
In the United States, potatoes have become one of the most widely consumed crops and thus have a variety of preparation methods and condiments. French fries and often hash browns are commonly found in typical American fast-food burger joints and cafeterias. One popular favorite involves a baked potato with cheddar cheese (or sour cream and chives) on top, and in New England “smashed potatoes” (a chunkier variation on mashed potatoes, retaining the peel) have great popularity. Potato flakes are popular as an instant variety of mashed potatoes, which reconstitute into mashed potatoes by adding water, with butter or oil and salt to taste. A regional dish of Central New York, salt potatoes are bite-size new potatoes boiled in water saturated with salt then served with melted butter. At more formal dinners, a common practice includes taking small red potatoes, slicing them, and roasting them in an iron skillet. Among American Jews, the practice of eating latkes (fried potato pancakes) is common during the festival of Hanukkah.
A traditional Acadian dish from New Brunswick is known as poutine râpée. The Acadian poutine is a ball of grated and mashed potato, salted, sometimes filled with pork in the center, and boiled. The result is a moist ball about the size of a baseball. It is commonly eaten with salt and pepper or brown sugar. It is believed to have originated from the German Klöße, prepared by early German settlers who lived among the Acadians.
Poutine, by contrast, is a hearty serving of French fries, fresh cheese curds and hot gravy. Tracing its origins to Quebec in the 1950s, it has become a widespread and popular dish throughout Canada.

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

Jenn O Turkey Burger Fries 006

 

Well they were right when they said it would be cooler! Rolled out to get the Morning Paper and the old unofficial Outdoor thermometer said 38 degrees and with the cool breeze that was blowing it felt a bit cooler than that. But I love this weather! It was a beautiful Autumn Day out, sunny and cool. For dinner tonight I prepared a Cheddar Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

While at Mejier last week I had picked up some Jennie – O Turkey Burger Patties (Lean). I had one for dinner last week and it was so good I decided to have it again for dinner tonight. Easy to prepare and only 180 calories and 9 g fat and already made into patties. Pan fried it in Canola Oil about 17 minutes, flipping three times. While the pattie was frying, in another skillet I fried up some Jennie -O Turkey Bacon, another low calorie and lean Jennie – O Turkey Product. The bacon is only 30 calories, 0 carbs and .05 g fat. I served the burger on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun and topped with a slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar and a slice of Turkey Bacon. Love these Burgers!

 

 

For a side with my burger I baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served these with a side Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Burger King adding low-fat French fries, ‘Satisfries’

September 26, 2013 at 7:57 AM | Posted in Food | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , ,

 

Burger King

Burger King Worldwide Inc. said it has developed French fries containing 40 percent less fat and 30 percent fewer calories than those sold by its arch rival McDonald’s Corp. The new crinkle-cut fries, to be called Satisfries, will contain 190 calories, 8 grams of fat, and 210 milligrams of sodium for a “value-size” serving.
“One out of every two Burger King guests orders our classic French fries and we know our guests are hungry for options that are better for them,” said Burger King President of North America, Alex Macedo.

The chain made the claims about lower-fat and lower-calorie fries, which come as consumer groups in the United States increase pressure on the food industry to offer healthier alternatives, on its website late Monday.

 

Fast food chains have come under fire from health groups for contributing to an obesity problem in the U.S. by selling high-fat content food. About two-thirds of adults in this country are overweight and one-third are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in a report published in May. Rising obesity leads to higher medical costs and risks of disease like diabetes and heart-disease.
Other popular fast food chains have also been trying to get rid of their junk-food tag, with McDonald’s offering an under-400-calories menu, while Dunkin’ Brands Group Inc. introduced a DD Smart menu. Yum! Brands Inc.’s KFC is also trying to make kids’ meals healthier offering grilled chicken, applesauce and green beans.
Burger King, home of the Whopper, said the difference between Satisfries and its classic French fries is that less oil is absorbed in the cooking process.

Tilapia Sand Fries 008

It was cleaning day, computer cleaning day. Amazing how much dust can gather in and around a computer. Took the panel off and cleaned inside it, then cleaned the outside of it. Cleaned the computer desk, which is always a dumping site for everything! Then did some back up of files, deleted a lot of things and ran a day long computer scan. All is okay and back up running! For dinner I had laid some frozen Tilapia Fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then for dinner it was Seasoned Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries.

 

 

Still using the bag of Tilapia I had purchased from Walmart. Good thing to have in the freezer, their easily thawed, easy to prepare , and delicious! I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them a bit of Sea Salt and then rolled them in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix. Pan fried them in Canola Oil about 3 minutes per side. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Deli Style Whole Grain Mini Sub Bun.

 

 
For a side for my Fish Sandwich I baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served these with a side Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. For dessert/snack later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Baked Ham and Swiss Hoagie w/ Baked FriesBaked Ham and Swiss 005

 

 
Happy Labor Day everyone, hope you had a fun one! It’s been real muggy out today, and a rain shower late afternoon which made it worse. Not much going on, went to the store early and that was about it. For dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Ham and Swiss Hoagie w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I used Aunt Millie’s Deli Style Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns and then for the Ham I used Kroger Brand Private Selection Oven Roasted Rosemary Ham. This has become my favorite packaged Hams incredible taste and it’s 70 calories and 1 carb per serving. The slices are very thin so I used a double serving of it on the Hoagie. I topped it with a new spread/dressing, Hidden Valley Smoked Bacon Ranch Sandwich Spread. Word of caution, this stuff is so good you’ll get a spoon and just eat from the jar! I think it’s new, I had a coupon I got from Sunday’s Paper and that’s how I found out about it. When at Walmart earlier I seen they had it in stock. They had about 4 different varieties of it and I went with the Smoked Bacon Ranch Dressing. I also topped it with 2 slices of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese.

 

 

I preheated the oven to 350 degrees and while that was heating up I combined tbsp. of Blue Bonnet Light Butter (Melted) , 1/2 tsp. dried onion, 1 tsp. Worchestershire sauce, 1 1/2 tsp. Poppy Seed dressing, and 1/2 tsp. yellow mustard. Mixed it to it was well combined. Poured the mixture over the sandwich. Covered it with foil and baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes then remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes to allow the rolls to crisp. Remove from oven to cool and served. Great recipe for Baked Ham and Swiss Sandwiches! The Poppy Seed Dressing Mixture that tops the Hoagie pulls everything together, all kinds of flavor! I also baked some of the Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries, love these fries! For dessert later a bowl of fresh sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked FriesBuffalo Cheese Burger 007

 

 

 
Late afternoon a friend of mine meet me over at a place here in West Chester, Union Square. They had the The Union Centre Food Truck Rally going on all day there. It was a fund-raiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs here in Butler County. Seemed to be a good turnout as the vendors we talked to said it had been steady all day. There was about 11 Food Trucks and a few vendors that were cooking from a tent. Didn’t stay long though, just too humid out. A passing shower made it worse. For dinner tonight a simple but one of my all-time dinner classics, Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries!

 

 

I used my favorite Buffalo Burger, Wild Idea Buffalo 1/4 Buffalo Burger. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. I topped it with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese and served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun.

 

 

For a side with my Cheese Burger I baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Tried these for the first time earlier and really like them. Served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
