Today’s Menu: Bacon and Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Shredded Hash Browns



I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Having a hard time with my allergies here the last 2 or 3 days. So I’m not quite up to par today with a bad headache. But after I had my Tea I went to the local Kroger here up the road for a few items. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch I ran the vacuum and dusted. Then took it easy the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Bacon and Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Shredded Hash Browns.



I’m having another one of the Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER. I tried this for the first time a while back and loved them! It comes frozen and there’s 3 – 1/3 lb. Burger Patties. The Premium Ground Buffalo is mixed with Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese, and seasoning. I’ll be preparing it as I do all Wild Idea Buffalo Burger. I’m dressing it up a bit this time. To prepare I’ll need; Maytag Crumbled Blue Cheese, 1 slice of Boar’s Head Bacon, Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam, and a toasted Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin.



To start it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, lightly seasoned. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. And as all the Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers it cooked up perfect!




As the Burger was cooking I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin. By using the Muffin instead of Burger Bun I saved on Calories, Fat, and carbs. I also microwaved a slice of Boar’s Head Bacon.






To assemble the Burger I took the bottom slice of the Muffin and added some of the Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Next I added the Burger, Bacon Slice, Crumbled Blue Cheese, and the top half slice of the Muffin. And I had one incredible Burger! The Burger its self has bits of Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon in it along with Blue Cheese. Then the added Maytag Blue Cheese, Bacon slice, and Blackberry Jam just put this Burger over the top! That was my last Wild Idea Bacon Blue Burger that I had in the freezer. I’ll be ordering more but right now Wild Idea is out of stock on them.



The Maytag Crumbled Blue Cheese I used is hard to find. I used to buy it at the Kroger Cheese Shop but they no longer carry it. So now I have order it DIRECT from Maytag Dairy Farms ( I also ordered some of their Cheddar Cheese Spread. Both are so good, the best Blue Cheese that I have ever found!




Then for a side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and served them sprinkled with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and Diet Peach Snapple to drink.






Our 100% prairie grass-fed Premium Ground Buffalo mixed with our 100% Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese and just the right amount of seasoning! For additional flavor try it with grape jelly or your favorite preserve – absolutely scrumptious! We did the work for you and… you’re welcome! Three one-third pound handcrafted burgers per package.






Maytag Farms

Seventy seven-years after the first wheels of Maytag Blue Cheese were made, our family tradition continues. Each wheel is handcrafted on the family farm in the rolling hills of central Iowa. We are still owned and operated by the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of E.H. Maytag. His legacy is the pleasure and joy taken from good food shared with people you cherish and we are proud to be a part of it.

On October 11, 1941, the first wheels of Maytag Blue Cheese were formed and put to age in our caves. Today, the tradition continues.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sandwich w/ Hash Browns



For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It was one of those long nights dealing with Phantom Pains. They started last night around 10:00 and didn’t finally let up till around 9:00 this morning. I had to be up early anyway I had to have Mom to the Eye Doctor for a follow up on her cataracts removal. She’s already seeing better and the Doc said everything looked fine! The heat wave has started back up! 92 degrees and humid, the heat index is around 101 degrees! I was going to start the touch-up painting on the shed and shutters but just too tired to do it today. Spent the the day catching up on some sleep. For Dinner tonight its a Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sandwich w/ Hash Browns.


It’s my 3rd day of Breakfast for Dinner Meals. I made a Breakfast Sandwich using; a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and lightly fried a al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty. I topped it with a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese.






To prepare the Chicken Sausage Patty; The Patties are fully cooked so all you have to do is reheat them. I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. Added the Patty to the heated skillet and cooked it for 6 minutes a side. Easy to prepare and delicious! These have such a good taste to them. They’re seasoned with Sage and Thyme. They also have some that are Maple Flavored but these are my favorites!




As the Sausage was cooking I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I love using these by their self, Breakfast Sandwiches, Muffin Pizzas, and much more! They’re 100 calories and 16 net carbs per Muffin. I served the Chicken Sausage Patty on the Muffin and topped it with a 1/2 slice of Cheese.





To go with my Dinner/Breakfast Sandwich I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. To prepare these I took a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated the skillet. Add potatoes to skillet; Cook 6-7 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom. Drizzle with an additional 1/4 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. Turn potatoes over with a spatula. Continue to cook 6-8 minutes, and done! I sprinkled some Sargeto Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheese over top of them to serve. Really enjoy these Breakfast/Dinners! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Eng Muff Egg Bologna 002

I love Breakfast and the early mornings! It’s the quietest part of the day and the beginning of a new day, full of hope and surprises. I like starting off with Breakfast and one of my favorites is making a Breakfast Sandwich. There’s endless toppings and ingredients you can use to make one. I made one this morning consisting of a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, Scrambled Egg (1 Egg), and Fried Kahn’s Deluxe Bologna (Sliced Thin). I use a Medium Size Egg (it’s only 60 calories) and season it with a splash of 2% Milk (to make the Egg fluffier), a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar, and Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I get the Bologna sliced very thin. I find that when you get it sliced thin it fries up better, it gives it a nice char on the outside. Put all the ingredients together and you have a delicious and healthy way to start your day, along with a cup of fresh brewed Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

Good and Healthy Way to Start the Day!
