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.

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

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s 1 Carb Wheat Bread. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 62 degrees and mostly cloudy today, with rain moving in by evening. They say by 10:00 or so tonight the temperature will drop to the mid 30’s. Then overnight a possible 1″ of wet snow by the morning! It’s an old but true saying, If you don’t like the weather in Ohio just wait a few hours it will change! With the roads and ground fairly warm little to none of the snow will stick, mainly slush. So anyway I got the cart out and got some yard work in. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

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

 

To start my day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 20 degrees out this morning, but no new snow overnight! First time in a while. I had to have Mom out to Ross, Ohio for her 2nd Covid Virus Vaccine shot. Her appointment was at 10:00 but we got there at 9:15 so she could get in line early. Good thing we did as the line later stretched through the store! I waited outside and there was just a steady stream of people going in. All were elderly so there was a lot of canes, walkers and wheelchairs. So glad that the elderly are getting theirs finally. So 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 the 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 14 minutes flipping it several 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 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, you have to try it!

One of America’s Favorites – BLT

January 18, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

BLT sandwich on toast

A BLT is a type of sandwich, named for the initials of its primary ingredients, bacon, lettuce and tomato. It can be made with varying recipes according to personal preference. Simple variants include using different types of lettuce, toasting or not, or adding mayonnaise. More pronounced variants can include using turkey bacon or tofu in place of bacon, or removing the lettuce entirely.

Variations on the BLT date to the early 1900s, but it did not achieve widespread popularity until after World War II, when the ingredients became more readily available year-round. Referencing the sandwich by its initials rather than naming the ingredients in full did not become common until the 1970s. Until 2019 the BLT has been ranked as the second most popular sandwich in the US and as the UK’s favourite sandwich, and is frequently referenced or depicted in media and culture. In 2019 the BLT dropped rank and was voted the sixth most popular sandwich in the US, with grilled cheese taking the lead as the most popular sandwich in the US.

 

Although the ingredients of the BLT have existed for many years, there is little evidence of BLT sandwich recipes prior to 1900. The 1903 Good Housekeeping Everyday Cook Book, a recipe by a Dr. Evan Mee for a club sandwich included bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise and a slice of turkey sandwiched between two slices of bread. While the 1929 book Seven Hundred Sandwiches does include a section on bacon sandwiches, the recipes often include pickles and none contain tomato.

A BLT sandwich preparation

The BLT became popular after World War II because of the rapid expansion of supermarkets, which allowed ingredients to be available year-round. The initials, representing “bacon, lettuce, tomato”, likely began in the U.S. restaurant industry as shorthand for the sandwich, but it is unclear when this transferred to the public consciousness. For example, a 1951 edition of the Saturday Evening Post makes reference to the sandwich, although it does not use its initials, describing a scene in which: “On the tray, invariably, are a bowl of soup, a toasted sandwich of bacon, lettuce and tomato, and a chocolate milk shake.”

A 1954 issue of Modern Hospital contains a meal suggestion that includes: “Bean Soup, Toasted Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich, Pickles, Jellied Banana Salad, Cream Dressing, and Pound Cake.” By 1958, Hellmann’s Mayonnaise advertised their product as “traditional on bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches,” suggesting that the combination had been around for some time. However, there are several references to a “B.L.T” in the early 1970s, including in one review of Bruce Jay Friedman’s play entitled Steambath titled: “A B.L.T. for God – hold the mayo.”. The abbreviation used in title references a line of dialogue in the play in which God yells, “Send up a bacon and lettuce and tomato sandwich, hold the mayo. You burn the toast, I’ll smite you down with my terrible swift sword.” The coexistence of the shortened version and the full name suggests this was a period of transition as the abbreviation was popularized.

 

While there are variations on the BLT, the essential ingredients are bacon, tomatoes and lettuce between two slices of bread, often toasted. The quantity and quality of the ingredients are matters of personal preference. The bacon can be well cooked or tender, but as it “carries” the other flavors, chefs recommend using higher quality meat; in particular, chef Edward Lee states “Your general supermarket bacon is not going to cut the mustard.”

Iceberg lettuce is a common choice because it does not add too much flavor while adding crunch. Food writer Ed Levine has suggested that BLT does not require lettuce at all, as it is “superfluous”, a suggestion that Jon Bonné, lifestyle editor at MSNBC, described as “shocking”. Michele Anna Jordan, author of The BLT Cookbook, believes the tomato is the key ingredient and recommends the use of the beefsteak tomato as it has more flesh and fewer seeds. Similarly, chef and food writer J. Kenji Lopez-Alt believes that a BLT is not a well-dressed bacon sandwich; it’s a tomato sandwich, seasoned with bacon. For that reason, he argues that the BLT is a seasonal sandwich since it best made with high-quality summer tomatoes.

The sandwich is sometimes served with dressings, like mayonnaise. The bread can be of any variety, white or wholemeal, toasted or not, depending on personal preference.

 

BLT with avocado

The sandwich has a high sodium and fat content, and has been specifically targeted by UK café chains in an effort to reduce salt and fat. Due to this, low-fat mayonnaise is a common substitute along with low salt bread and less fatty bacon. A more visible solution is to use turkey bacon in lieu of normal bacon. One of the variations on the BLT is the club sandwich, a two-layered sandwich in which one layer is a BLT. The other layer can be almost any sort of sliced meat, normally chicken or turkey.

The BLT has been deconstructed into a number of forms; for example, Edna Lewis and Scott Peacock created a BLT salad in The Gift of Southern Cooking by cutting the ingredients into 1 inch pieces and tossing in mayonnaise. This variation was described by The New York Times writer Julia Reed as “even more perfect than a BLT”.

Vegans and vegetarians may replace bacon with tempeh or tofu as meat analogue instead. Alternatively they can use mock bacon.

 

 

6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Beans, Baked Potato, and Salad

Today’s Menu: 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Beans, Baked Potato, and Salad

 

 

 

To start my day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 50 degrees, cloudy and rainy all day outside. So I stayed in and cleaned the house today. First did a load of laundry and then dusted and vacuumed. That was about it for my day. Caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Beans, Baked Potato, and Salad.

 

 

I had a couple of Wild Idea Buffalo 6 oz. Sirloin Steaks in the freezer and I set them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks, always lean and so delicious! I first heated the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare it I rubbed the Steak with a teaspoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary and McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloins, I cooked them 2 minutes per side and finished them in the oven to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and tender. I prepared some Sauteed Mushrooms to go with the Steak.

 

I prepared a can of Bush’s Country Style Baked Beans. Just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Bush’s Beans!

 

 

 

I also had a baked Russet Potato for a side with Steak. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a small Tossed Salad and a baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! Then for Dessert/Snack later 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Beans, Baked Potato, and Salad

 

 

To start my day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 50 degrees, cloudy and rainy all day outside. So I stayed in and cleaned the house today. First did a load of laundry and then dusted and vacuumed. That was about it for my day. Caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Beans, Baked Potato, and Salad.

 

I had a couple of Wild Idea Buffalo 6 oz. Sirloin Steaks in the freezer and I set them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks, always lean and so delicious! I first heated the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare it I rubbed the Steak with a teaspoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary and McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloins, I cooked them 2 minutes per side and finished them in the oven to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and tender. I prepared some Sauteed Mushrooms to go with the Steak.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 59 degrees, a bit cooler today after all the rain overnight. We had leaves and tree branches all over the deck and yard from the wind and rain from last night. So I grabbed the rake, leaf blower, and my cart out of the shed and cleaned the yard and deck. Such a pain trying to get stuff done while in a wheelchair or mobility cart sometimes. But thankful I’m able to get things done! 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 the 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 14 minutes flipping it several 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 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, you have to try it! I tried the Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise on the last Turkey Burger and loved it! It’s nice and Creamy with excellent flavor and a nice little kick to it!

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
