Today’s Menu: Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start this beautiful morning off I baked a small 5 Biscuit can of Pillsbury Flakey Biscuits. I also heated up 5 Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Patties. And I have my Sausage Breakfast Sandwich! I also added a 1/4 slice of Hoffman’s Super Sharp Cheese. Had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s another perfect day out there today! A high of 79 degrees, Sunny and low humidity. So beautiful out! Got the cart out did yard work most of the day. I also helped a neighbor of ours with his yard. So good to be out here enjoying this weather! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I had purchased a package of Smart Ground Chicken from Meijer a while back and had it in the freezer. I set the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Litehouse Poultry Herb Seasoning, 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, John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Hoffman Super Sharp Cheese. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun.

 

First thing I did was fry the Bacon. I’m using John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon. I rarely use John Morrell but you have to use what you can find in stock right now at the stores. John Morrell Bacon is great tasting Bacon, just don’t use it. So I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam cooking Spray. Then heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Bacon. Mom loves Bacon so I just fried the whole package. Fried up great and was delicious! I set it aside until I needed it.

 

Next I made my Chicken Burger patties. 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 the Bacon. 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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smart 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.

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

 

For Breakfast I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 91, humid and sunny outside. Watered the shrubs and lawn early this morning, everything still turning brown. We had some rain but we need a lot more. Afterward I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Did some cleaning in and around the house. Then I cleaned off Mom’s inside car windows for her. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

Mom wanted the Big Loaded Up Turkey Burger tonight! So I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 12 minutes flipping it 3 times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

 

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise (my favorite Mayo) and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo. The Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise is nice and creamy with excellent flavor, with a little kick to it!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I baked them for 20 minutes and done. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun, the buns are only 50 calories and 2 net carbs per Bun! I topped it with some Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. What a sandwich, just incredible flavor! The Wild Idea Buffalo Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast is so flavorful and tender. It just has such a deep and rich flavor to it. One of my favorites!

 

For my Fries I’m using Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 19 minutes. They are only 90 calories and 10 net carbs.

Asiago Cheese Ground Pork Burger w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Asiago Cheese Ground Pork Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

To start my morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I used a al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty, 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy, 87 degrees, with passing rain showers out today. I believe our Cicada problem is over, finally! I found very few out today. This seems like a long time coming. I wanted to rake the yard but it was just too windy. So I cleaned out what I could in our flower beds and the cleaned off the deck and driveway. Later I did a small load of laundry.  For Dinner tonight I prepared an Asiago Cheese Ground Pork Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I bought a 1 lb. package of Ground Pork at Meijer a while back.  With a 1 lb. package of Ground Pork you can easily get 4-5 Burgers. To make them I got a large bowl and added the Pork. I then added all the Spices; Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Cumin, Mustard Powder, Dried Cilantro Leaves. I mixed the Spices with the Ground Pork until well mixed. Don’t overwork the Pork, you don’t want to break the Pork down. Next just form the Pork Mixture into Burgers. I had them all in the freezer. I took a package of 2 and sat them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To cook the Burgers I’m using a Cast Iron Skillet. I first sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Cooking Olive Oil, heated the Skillet on medium heat. When the Skillet was heated up I added my Burgers.

 

After 3 minutes flip the burgers. Continued cooking for 4 minutes more. Flipped one more time and cook for another 2 minutes or until cooked through. If you’re adding on Cheese go ahead and do so with about a minute before removing from them pan. I’m using Boar’s Head Asiago Cheese. When cooking Pork Burgers, you want to make sure that they are cooked all the way through. Which means taking them to 160 degrees internally. I served the Burgers on Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Buns. The Burgers were topped with the Boar’s Head Asiago Cheese, and Hellman’s Organic Mayonnaise – Spicy Chipotle. One delicious Burger! I had tried the Asiago Cheese on the Pork Burgers last time I made them and loved the taste. So I bought some sliced Boar’s Head Asiago Cheese from the Kroger Deli my last visit there. Kroger has a great variety of Boar’s Head Meat and Cheese Products.

 

To go with the Burger I I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ground Pork…….
Vitamins B6 and B12, are found abundantly in pork, are essential for blood cell formation and brain function. Pork is also an excellent source of iron — the heme-iron found in red meats is absorbed very easily by the human digestive system.

Pork. Lean pork is every bit as good for your body as lean beef and chicken. In one study, substituting lean pork for beef and chicken led to less body fat and better heart health. For a spicy take, try ancho-rubbed pork tenderloin.

Today’s Menu: Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Steak Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Cheddar Cheese. I really love these. So easy to prepare and very good! Plus they are only 150 calories and 3 carbs per serving, which is excellent. Rain and thunderstorms most of the day, 64 degrees and windy also. Well with the weather going on outside I was indoors all day. Just not a lot to do though. Did a load of laundry and did some cleaning. For Dinner tonight its a Pork Boston Butt! Tonight its Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

I purchased the Pork Boston Butt Roast on sale at Kroger yesterday. I placed a pick-up order for yesterday morning. I used the Crock Pot to prepare it. I’ll need the following; Pork Boston Butt Roast, 1/4 cup of Water, JB’s Fat Boy Premium All-Purpose Rub, and JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce.

 

I applied the Rub all over Pork Shoulder and rubbed it in. Next I lined my Crock Pot with a Reynolds Crock Pot Plastic Bag Liner and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. Love these Crock Pot Liners, makes for an easy cleanup! The Roast was just over 16 pounds and I really didn’t have room for it in the Fridge so I just went ahead and heated the Crock Pot up on low heat. When heated, I added the Roast. Covered and cooked on High for 1 hour. Turned it to Low and cooked 7 to 9 hours longer, until fall apart tender.

 

Removed the Roast with the Bear Claws into a bowl. A word about these Bear Claws; I love these things to remove meat and roasts from whatever you’re cooking it in on to a plate. Word of caution though, these things are very sharp so be careful with them. I used the bear Claws to Shred the Pork. I normally re add to the Crock Pot with BBQ Sauce but Mom just wanted to add the BBQ Sauce to her Sandwich so we did it that way. I needed the Crock Pot anyway to cook the other 1/2 of the Boston Butt. It was too big to cook it all at once so I cooked the 1/2 and took it out later tonight. We are using JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce for our BBQ Sauce. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun, with extra BBQ Sauce on the side. Nothing but a winning Pork Butt Dish! So tender and seasoned just right with Rub and BBQ Sauce. A lot of leftovers for some delicious Sandwiches and Meals the rest of the week!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms out there!

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

 

 

For Breakfast I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 63 degrees and partly sunny out today. I took Mom over to Jungle Jim’s Market this morning. She went in and grabbed a couple of items and put them in my cart. Then she headed back out to the car. She’s having a lot of trouble walking for a long length of time. So I finished the shopping up, I love Jungle Jim’s! As I have said before it has everything from Quail Eggs to Ground Ostrich. Plus older U.S. Grocery Items you can no longer find anywhere else. Anyway back home, I took Mom’s car up and had it washed and then stopped and filled it with gas. Then cleaned up a little outside. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

So I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 12 minutes flipping it 3 times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

 

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise (my favorite Mayo) and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo. The Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise is nice and creamy with excellent flavor, with a little kick to it!

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I baked them for 19 minutes and done. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.
