Today’s Menu: Turkey Sliders and Baked Fries

 

 

 

Turkey Burger Sliders 006
A windy and cool Spring Day out there today. Rain and only in the 50’s or 60. When something needs repaired in the house it seems like it’s just never one thing, it all breaks down in bunches! Went to the hardware store and picked up everything needed and have someone coming over tomorrow to install them for me. Just another disadvantage of being in a wheelchair, some things you just have to have help. For dinner tonight it’s Turkey Sliders and Baked Fries.

 

 

 
Walmart had some Pepperidge Farm Wheat Slider Buns on sale, so it seemed like a perfect time for some sliders! I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast for my Burgers. If you’re having Sliders they might as well be healthy Sliders. The Jennie – O Turkey is only 120 calories with the Buns being 100 calories. To prepare them I formed the Ground Turkey into Slider Bun size patties. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn with just a pinch of Sage in each. I pan fried them in Canola Oil. Served them on the Pepperidge Farm Wheat Slider Buns and topped with a quarter slice of Cracker Barrel Sharp Cheddar, and just a dab of JB’s Stick Stuff BBQ Sauce. Love these Turkey Sliders!

 

 

 
For one side I baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries and had a Side Salad. For dessert/snack later some Turkey Spam and Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.

Another good and informative series of articles from http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/
With this one I’ll be posting all their Bread catergory’s and winners.

Taste-Tested & Diabetes-Friendly

Do you avoid the bread aisle just to escape the confusion felt by so many carb-conscious consumers? It’s true: Bread is a tricky product to buy, especially for people with diabetes. Now you can return to the bread aisle with confidence — thanks to a list of products that recently received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval. Our staff and dietitians picked through the loaves to find those that met our nutritional guidelines. Next we brought in more than 100 people, including PWDs, to taste the brand-hidden products. The top breads, buns, tortillas, and English muffins were awarded the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval.

Nutritional Guidelines
Every bread tested had to meet these health requirements per 2 slices, 1 tortilla, or 1 bun:
— 150 calories or less
— 3 g total fat or less
— 1.5 g saturated fat or less
— 0 g trans fat
— 30 g carb or less
— 300 mg sodium or less
— At least 2 g fiber

Hamburger Bun Finalists

To meet our fiber guideline, all of the hamburger buns in our contest were wheat or whole wheat buns. Note: Per bun equals top and bottom.

Pepperidge Farm Classic 100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns
Per bun: 120 cal., 2 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 150 mg sodium, 18 g carb., 2 g fiber

Village Hearth Light Wheat Hamburger Buns
Per bun: 80 cal., 1 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 190 mg sodium, 20 g carb., 7 g fiber

Hamburger Bun Winner

And the winner of the hamburger bun category is:

Wonder Wheat Hamburger Buns
Per bun: 110 cal., 1.5 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 220 mg sodium, 21 g carb., 2 g fiber

Taster’s comment: “Good height and structure. Soft, with a hint of sweetness.”

Why it won: This bun was sturdy and wouldn’t flop when filled with fixins’. It’s low enough in fat and calories to suit anyone at a picnic.

— 30 g carb or less
— 300 mg sodium or less
— At least 2 g fiber

Sandwich Flat Finalists

Sandwich flats, deli flats, thin buns — whatever you call them, they are very popular with health-conscious consumers who want a lower-carb alternative to regular bread and buns. Note: Per bun equals top and bottom. The finalists in this category were:

EarthGrains 100% Multi-Grain Thin Buns
Per bun: 100 cal., 1.5 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 150 mg sodium, 21 g carb., 4 g fiber

Arnold Select 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins
Per bun: 100 cal., 1 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 230 mg sodium, 21 g carb., 5 g fiber

Sandwich Flat Winner

And the winner of the sandwich flat category is:
Pepperidge Farm Deli Flats 7 Grain

Per bun: 100 cal., 1 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 170 mg sodium, 19 g carb., 5 g fiber

Taster’s comment: “This one has the best overall flavor. It’s soft, sweet, and nutty.”

Why it won: This sandwich flat was flavorful and had a nice aroma. We like that it contains 5 grams of fiber per bun. Fill it with vegetables and some lean protein for a healthful meal, though one taster noted that it was so good she would eat this bun without anything on it.
