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: Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Pork Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start my morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 36 degrees and rain, and a whole lot of it! I seen a couple of houses up the street where the ambulance stopped and to take people off to the hospital. Bad way to start the week off! Did a couple of loads of laundry after Breakfast. Then after Lunch I had to go to Kroger and Pick Up my Grocery Order. A lot safer to order on line and then they deliver to your car. Back home all caught up today. Caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Pork Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I first fried about 5 slices of al fresco Chicken Bacon. I love using this Bacon, fries up perfect and only 35 calories for 2 slices. I sat aside until I added to the Burger. I only needed I only needed 2 slices but using the Bacon math you should always make double the amount. You have to have some eat as your preparing everything!

 

I bought a 1 lb. package of Ground Pork at Meijer the other day. 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.

I first sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin 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 6-8 minutes more. Flipped one more time, cover and cook for another 3-4 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 Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar. 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 Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Buns. The Burgers were topped with Sharp Cheddar Cheese, al fresco Chicken Bacon and Hellman’s Organic Mayonnaise – Spicy Chipotle. One delicious Burger!

 

To go with the Burger I I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Trop A Rocka Diet Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Steak Strips Hoagie and Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and topped them with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the the Block 4 State Cheddar. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 70 degrees out today. With the rain and wind that came in overnight my yard and deck were full of leaves! So I got my cart, rake, and leaf blower out of the shed. I ended up filling up 2 1/2 large garbage bags with leaves. Then gave a neighbor a hand raking his yard. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Steak Strips Hoagie and Baked Fries.

 

To make my Hoagie I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo – Premium Steak Strips, Extra Light Olive Oil, Wild Idea Omnivore Salt, Meijer Perfection Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns, Hellman’s Organic Mayonnaise- Spicy Chipotle, and Pennsylvania Dutchman Sliced Mushrooms. I was going through the freezer looking for something for upcoming Dinner and came across a package of Wild Idea Buffalo – Premium Steak Strips. I had forgot that I had purchased them a while back and had them in the freezer. I sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. The package contains pre-cut strips from the Tenderloin, New York Strip, Ribeye and Sirloin. I had some a quite a while back and they are just flat out delicious!

 

To prepare them; I first Rinsed the Wild Idea Bison Steak Strips and pat them dry. I then added a light amount of Extra Light Olive Oil to them, making sure the Strips were completely covered on all sides. Then I seasoned them with Wild Idea Buffalo Omnivore Salt. The Omnivore Salt is a blend of Natural Sea Salt and Organic Spices. Then I left the Strips rest. Next I got a Cast Iron Skillet and added 1 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil, heated the Skillet on Medium High Heat.

 

Over Medium High heat, I cooked the Bison Strips for about 4 minutes, tossing to turn occasionally. I removed the Strips into a bowl. I turned the Heat to Medium and then using the same Skillet I Sauteed some Mushrooms. I seasoned those with Ground Roast Cumin, Dried Parsley, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. Turning and tossing the Mushrooms often and for about 4 minutes. I removed them from the Skillet into a bowl.

 

To serve I got one of the Hoagie Rolls and added some of the Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise to the bottom half of the roll, I put on nice and thick. I have fallen in love with this Mayo! Nice Spice, a little heat but nothing overpowering. Then I added my Buffalo Steak Strips, topped that with the Sauteed Mushrooms and it’s ready to eat! Those Steak Strips are nothing less than incredible! So tender and flavorful. The Chipotle Mayo and Sauteed Mushrooms are perfect with the Steak Strips. One very delicious Steak Hoagie!

 

To go with the Hoagie I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, my favorites. I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Dole Diced Peach Cup.

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
