Today’s Menu: Baked Ham/Swiss and Turkey /Cheddar Sliders w/ Thanksgiving Leftovers

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I heated up the leftover Diced Potatoes and Diced Ham that I had prepared yesterday. Not a bad day out today, 54 degrees and mostly cloudy. After Lunch I took Mom’s car up to have it washed and then I cleaned all of the inside windows and vacuumed it out for her. Later on I entered a Scrabble Tournament online. I love Scrabble! For Dinner tonight I used the Leftovers from Thanksgiving. I prepared Baked Ham/Swiss and Turkey /Cheddar Sliders w/ Thanksgiving Side Leftovers.

 

 

 

 

For Dinner its Baked Ham and Swiss Sliders along with Turkey and Vermont Cheddar Sliders. To make them I’ll need; King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (Cut in half), leftover Ham, leftover Turkey Breast, Sargento Swiss Cheese, Boar’s Head Vermont Yellow Cheddar, Blue Bonnet Light Butter – 4 Tbsp (original recipe called for 8), 2 tsp. Dried Onion Powder, 1 1/2 tsp. Worchestershire Sauce, 1 1/2 tsp. Ken’s Light Poppyseed Dressing, and 1/2 tsp. French’s Yellow Mustard.

 

 

 

 

Next I made my Bun Topping Sauce. I grabbed a medium size bowl to mix my ingredients in. I then mixed the Butter, Onion Powder, Worchestershire Sauce, Ken’s Light Poppyseed Dressing, and French’s Yellow Mustard together. Stirred until well mixed and sit it aside until ready to use it.

 

 

 

 

 

Then to prepare the Sliders; preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then I got an 11 x 14 baking pan that I lined with foil and sprayed with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. I placed the bottom half of the Slider Buns in the bottom of the baking pan. Next I placed the Sweet Sliced Ham and Sliced Turkey Breast on top of each Bun. You can put as much of the Ham or Turkey you want on each. I then placed a 1/2 a slice of the Swiss on the Ham and Cheddar cheese on top of the Turkey. Then added the the top 1/2 of each bun to each Slider. Then topped all the Sliders with Topping Sauce Mixture. Covered the baking pan with foil and baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Removed the foil and baked an additional 15 minutes to allow the rolls to crisp. Remove from oven to cool and serve.

 

 

 

These Baked Ham Sliders are incredible! The Ham, Turkey, Cheese, and Buns are all great but the Topping Sauce makes the Dish. The Sauce gives it such great flavor, love these Sliders! Plus a great way to use those Thanksgiving Leftovers!

 

 

 

 

 

Then I also heated the leftover Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans. Those Canned Green Beans are so delicious! We had canned these during Summer and broke out the first jar for Thanksgiving, so good! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Breakfast for Dinner – Thin Cut Pork Chops, Hash Browns, Scrambled Eggs, and Toast

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multigrain English Muffin and topped the halves with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I had to go to the local Kroger up the road for a couple of items for Mom then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for her. Did a couple loads of laundry. Then got the cart out and did some yard work; cleaned off the deck and driveway areas and raked more leaves. Ton of leaves right now! For Dinner tonight Breakfast! I prepared Thin Cut Pork Chops, Hash Browns, Scrambled Eggs and Toast.

 

 

 

 


I had this same meal once before, so good had to have it again! I had 1 package of Thin Cut Pork Loin Chops I bought from Meijer in the freezer. I had sat the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. Along with the Chops I’ll be using; 2 Eggs (Scrambled), Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns, and 2 slices Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 


To prepare the Chops; I seasoned with McCormick’s Smokehouse Maple Seasoning. First time trying this Seasoning. Some of the ingredients are Brown Sugar, Molasses, Garlic, Onions, and Paprika. Perfect for Pork, Chicken, or Salmon. Next i grabbed a skillet and gave a spray of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated on medium heat. When the skillet was ready added the Chops. I just cooked them about 2 1/2 minutes per side. Being thin cut, it didn’t take them long to cook. It was a good size package so we froze the ones left. The Chops turned out delicious! Moist and the McCormick Smokehouse Maple Seasoning was perfect for the Pork.

 

 

 


Then for a side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and served them sprinkled with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar.

 

 

 

 

 


As both the Chops and Hash Browns were finishing I then made the Scrambled Eggs. As soon as the Hash Browns were done I removed them from the skillet and used this skillet for my Eggs. I used 2 Medium Size Eggs; also Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. To prepare them In a small bowl, whisked the Eggs and add just a splash of water. Added the Eggs, to the all ready heated skillet and cooked. Flipped the Eggs a couple of times and turned the heat off and finished the Eggs. When done I sprinkled the Scramble with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Cheese. Finally I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Wow, nothing like a good Breakfast for Dinner! For Dessert later a bowl of Del Monte Sliced Peaches.

 

 

 

 

 


Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns have just the right amount of delicate seasoning and they fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from fresh potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you don’t have to worry about freezer burn. No need to peel, shred and season, we’ve done it all just for you.

Today’s Menu: Baked Sliders – Ham and Swiss, Pulled Pork BBQ and Colby w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Thomas Light 100 Calorie Multi Grain English Muffin. Then I lightly fried some slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, and topped it all with a 1/2 slice of Boar’s Head Longhorn Colby Cheese. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another day of thunderstorms, humid, and 84 degrees outside. Really battling my allergies and sinuses the last few days so I didn’t do a lot today. Sure hope this lets up soon! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Sliders – Ham and Swiss, Pulled Pork BBQ and Colby w/ Baked Fries.

 

For Dinner; Baked Ham and Swiss Sliders and Pulled Pork BBQ and Cheddar Sliders. To make them I’ll need Kroger Whole Wheat Slider Buns. These are only 70 calories and 13 carbs. I also used Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, Sargento Swiss Cheese, Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ, Boar’s Head Colby Longhorn Cheese. Then for the Topping Sauce I’ll need; Blue Bonnet Light Butter – 4 Tbsp (original recipe called for 8), 2 tsp. Dried Onion Powder, 1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce, 1 1/2 tsp. Ken’s Light Poppyseed Dressing, and 1/2 tsp. French’s Yellow Mustard.

 

 

 

 

To start I heated up the Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ. Just got a small sauce pan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Added the Pork and heated it on low until it was time to use it.

 

 

 

 

Next I made my Bun Topping Sauce. I grabbed a medium size bowl to mix my ingredients in. I then mixed the Butter, Onion Powder, Worchestershire Sauce, Ken’s Light Poppyseed Dressing, and French’s Yellow Mustard together. Stirred until well mixed and sit it aside until ready to use it.

 

 

 

 

Then to prepare the Sliders; preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then I got an 11 x 14 baking pan that I lined with foil and sprayed with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. I placed the bottom half of the Slider Buns in the bottom of the baking pan. Next I placed the Sweet Sliced Ham on top of each Bun. You can put as much of the Ham you want on each. I then placed a 1/2 a slice of either the Swiss on top of the Ham. Next I added a 1/2 slice of the Longhorn Cheese to the remaining Buns and topped it with the Pork BBQ. Then added the the top 1/2 of each bun to each Slider. Then topped all the Sliders with Topping Sauce Mixture. Covered the baking pan with foil and baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Removed the foil and baked an additional 15 minutes to allow the rolls to crisp. Remove from oven to cool and serve.

 

These Baked Ham Sliders are incredible! The Ham, Cheese, Buns are all great but the Topping Sauce makes the Dish. The Sauce gives it such great flavor, love these Sliders! And the BBQ Pulled Pork and Longhorn Cheese were mouth watering! Again that Topping Sauce makes the Slider!

 

 

 

 


As the Sliders cooled I turned the oven up to 425 degrees and baked my Fries. I used Ore Ida Crinkle Cut 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 Hunt’s Ketchup. Baked Ham Sliders or the Pulled Pork BBQ Sliders and Fries make one delicious meal! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Sliced Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Whole Grain Rotini

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Today is my Mom’s 90th Birthday! So, So lucky to have my Mom around all this time! After Breakfast I went to Kroger to pick up a Birthday Cake and Flowers for her and stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for her and Dad. Not a bad day out, sunny and a high of 40 degrees. Swept of the driveway and wooden deck outside. After Lunch did some house cleaning and a load of laundry. For Dinner tonight I prepared Sliced Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Whole Grain Rotini.

 


For the Sausage I’m using a favorite of mine, Jennie – O Turkey Sweet Italian Sausages. I love these about anyway I can prepare them. And tonight I’ll be slicing them up and using them with Pasta.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Sausage I took a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and preheated the skillet on medium heat. I kept the Sausage Links whole to keep all the juices in, I’ll slice them after they have been cooked. With the skillet heated I added 3 of the Sausages and covered the pan with the lid. I cooked them for 16 minutes, turning them frequently. After 16 minutes I checked one of the Sausages with a meat thermometer and it was at 164 degrees. Always be sure Turkey is at 165 degrees before eating. I let the Sausages cool for 3 minutes and sliced them into bite size pieces and set them aside until I was ready to add them to the Pasta, which I had already started to boil.

 


For the Rotini Pasta I’m using my favorite, Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Rotini. Easy to prepare; I used a large sauce pan and added 1 1/2 quarts of water and Salt and brought it to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and brought it back to a boil. Cooked uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring often. Drained the Pasta and added it to a large bowl.

 

 

 

 

Seasoned it with 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, some McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese, and topped it with LaRosa Sauce. Added the sliced Jennie – O Sweet Italian Sausages and stirred until well mixed. Served it in a bowl and topped it with a sprinkle of the Parm Cheese and some Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Baked Ham and Swiss Sliders w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this Morning I made Toast, Gravy, and Turkey Sausage Links. I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Then I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. I was out of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links so I picked up a package of Johnsonville Turkey Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage Links. Just heat them up in a skillet for 8 minutes and they’re ready! A very good Breakfast Sausage Link. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It snowed overnight and we ended up with about 2 inches or so. Had a low of about 15 degrees and a high of 21, but with the wind chill it felt like the single digits out all day! Not much to do today so I cleaned the house, emptied the vacuum, charged the vacuum batteries, and dusted. It really didn’t need it but it gave me a little something to do. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Ham and Swiss Sliders w/ Baked Fries.

 


For Dinner one my favorite recipes, Baked Ham and Swiss Sliders w/ Baked Fries. To make them I’ll need; Kroger Whole Wheat Slider Buns. These are only 70 calories and 13 carbs. I also used Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, Sargento Swiss Cheese, Sargeto Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter – 4 Tbsp (original recipe called for 8), 2 tsp. Dried Onion Powder, 1 1/2 tsp. Worchestershire Sauce, 1 1/2 tsp. Ken’s Light Poppyseed Dressing, and 1/2 tsp. French’s Yellow Mustard.

 

 

Next I made my Bun Topping Sauce. I grabbed a medium size bowl to mix my ingredients in. I then mixed the Butter, Onion Powder, Worchestershire Sauce, Ken’s Light Poppyseed Dressing, and French’s Yellow Mustard together. Stirred until well mixed and sit it aside until ready to use it.

 

 

 

 

Then to prepare the Sliders; preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then I got an 11 x 14 baking pan that I lined with foil and sprayed with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. I placed the bottom half of the Slider Buns in the bottom of the baking pan. Next I placed the Sweet Sliced Ham on top of each Bun. You can put as much of the Ham you want on each. I then placed a 1/2 a slice of either the Swiss or Sharp Cheddar cheese on top of the Ham. Then added the the top 1/2 of each bun to each Slider. Then topped all the Sliders with Topping Sauce Mixture. Covered the baking pan with foil and baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Removed the foil and baked an additional 15 minutes to allow the rolls to crisp. Remove from oven to cool and serve.

 

These Baked Ham Sliders are incredible! I normally just use Swiss Cheese so It’s the first time I used Sharp Cheddar Cheese on them and they turned out just as good as Swiss! The Ham, Cheese, Buns are all great but the Topping Sauce makes the Dish. The Sauce gives it such great flavor, love these Sliders!

 

 

 

 

As the Sliders cooled I turned the oven up to 425 degrees and baked my Fies. I used Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries, my usual choice of Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Baked Ham Sliders and Fries are perfect together! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a 2 Egg Cheese Omelet along with 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Patties, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Delicious way to start my day! Outside it’s in the mid 80’s, humid, and a showers around the area. I needed a few things from the store so I went to Meijer. As I was coming out to the car, just as I put the bags in the back seat it started pouring the rain. It came down hard for about 15 minutes, I was drenched by the time I got into the car. Back home just cleaned up around the house. For Dinner tonight I satisfy my Buffalo Burger craving. I prepared a Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I’m way over due for a Wild Idea Buffalo Burger! I just love these Buffalo Burgers! I made this one combining my two favorites, Wild idea Buffalo and Jennie – O Turkey! I used Jennie – O Turkey Bacon for my Burger topping. Heated up a medium size skillet on medium high heat and fried the Bacon until it was crisp. Removed it from the skillet to a Paper Towel lined plate, and set aside. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it! For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side, after flipping the Burger I added my slice of Cheese, Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with about 1 minute of cooking time left. Topped it with the Turkey Bacon and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun. Love a good Burger and love these Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers, and topped with the Jennie – O Turkey Bacon it just adds to the goodness!

 

To go with my Burger I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

I wanted something a little different for Breakfast this morning so I went with a Breakfast Burrito for Breakfast this morning. You can prepare them so many different ingredients. For this one I used 2 medium size Eggs (Scrambled), Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Crumbled), sliced Black and Green Olives, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce, and Old El Paso 6 – Inch Flour Tortillas. Eggs and Bacon are just a natural pairing and the Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce can’t be beat. It just gives everything an unbelievable flavor, nice heat but not over powering.

 

 

 

Another hot and humid day out there! Did some cleaning outside early to avoid the heat and humidity. Not a whole lot to do today, all caught up on everything. Did some work on the computer, ran the scans, deleted some old files and such. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

I hadn’t had a Wild Idea Buffalo Burger in a while now! I just love these Bad Boys of Buffalo Burgers! I made this one combining my two favorites, Wild idea Buffalo and Jennie – O Turkey! I used Jennie – O Turkey Bacon for my Burger topping. Heated up a medium size skillet on medium high heat and fried the Bacon until it was crisp. Removed it from the skillet to a Paper Towel lined plate, and set aside. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it! For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side, after flipping the Burger I added my slice of Cheese, Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with about 1 minute of cooking time left. Topped it with the Turkey Bacon and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun. Love a good Burger and love these Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers, and topped with the Jennie – O Turkey Bacon it just adds to the goodness!

 

To go with my Burger I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries leftover so I prepared them to go with my Burger.Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Baked Rigatoni with Turkey w/ Baked Multi Grain Loaf Bread

 

 

For my Breakfast this morning I prepared a 2 Egg Scrambled Eggs, that I topped with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. Then I reheated part of the Monster Pork Chop that was leftover from last night. I also toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. And as every morning a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it’s partly cloudy with a high around 85 degrees and a bit more humid. After Breakfast I went to the Post Office for Mom, picked up a prescription at Kroger, and stopped by the bank ATM machine. Back home not a lot going on today. After a light Lunch I headed out to Meijer Lawn and Garden. looking for some solar lights for the yard. For Dinner tonight a new recipe, Baked Rigatoni with Turkey w/ Baked Multi Grain Loaf Bread.

 

This 1 of 2 Pillsbury based recipes that I’m trying this week. The Baked Rigatoni with Turkey that I’m preparing was originally made with Ground Beef but as I do with a lot of recipes I put my little spin on them. To make the dish I’ll need; 2 1/2 cups uncooked Rigatoni Pasta (about 7 oz) – I used Racconto Rigatoni, 1 lb Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 1 jar (23.9 oz) Ragu Mushroom Sauce, 1 1/2 cups Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (6 oz), 1/4 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and Dried Basil Leaves.

 

 

Ready for the oven….

Then to prepare it; I started by preheating the oven to 350°F. Next spray 11×7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with Pam Cooking Spray. Cook and drain the Pasta as directed on package, using the minimum cooking time. Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook the Jenni – O Turkey over medium-high heat about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain.

 

 

 

 

….and done!

In the baking dish, stir together cooked Pasta, Turkey, Sauce and 1 cup of the Mozzarella Cheese. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese and the Parmesan Cheese. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Garnish with the Basil and serve! I have another one of those “keeper recipes”, it turned out great! Rigatoni is incredible all by itself, but add in the Turkey, Sauce, and Cheese and you have a winning dish. I always substitute Beef with Jennie – O Turkey or Wild Idea Buffalo. Ground Buffalo would go great with also. I’ve left the original Pillsbury recipe and web link at the end of the post.

 

 

To go with Pasta I baked a loaf of the La Brea Bakery Multi Grain Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

Today’s Menu: Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Breakfast Burrito Eggs Bacon 002
I had a Breakfast Burrito for Breakfast this morning. Can’t get enough of these Breakfast Burritos lately. You can prepare them so many different ingredients. For this one I used 2 medium size Eggs (Scrambled), Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Crumbled), sliced Black and Green Olives, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce, and Old El Paso 6 – Inch Flour Tortillas. Eggs and Bacon are just a natural pairing and the Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce can’t be beat. It just gives everything an unbelievable flavor, nice heat but not over powering.

 

Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w Baked Fries 008
Another hot and humid July day out there! Did some cleaning outside early to avoid the heat and humidity. Not a whole lot to do today, all caught up on everything. Did some work on the computer and then kicked back and caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

Love these Buffalo Burgers combining my two favorites, Wild idea Buffalo and Jennie – O Turkey! I used Jennie – O Buffalo Cheese Burger w Baked Fries 001Turkey Bacon for my Burger topping. Heated up a medium size skillet on medium high heat and fried the Bacon until it was crisp. Removed it from the skillet to a Paper Towel lined plate, and set aside. For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious!
