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.

When I went out to get the morning papers it was 38 degrees! Our first morning in the 30’s in quite some time, and you know what it felt good! It may have been 38 outside but I started the day off with healthy and hot Breakfast inside. I had some Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hashbrowns, Jennie – O Lean Ground Turkey Breakfast Sausage (made into patties), 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (toasted and spread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter), a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, and the morning papers. Very good day so far!
