JILL’S FAVORITE BUFFALO BURGERS
This recipe adds a little extra savoriness to the 100% grass-fed goodness!

Ingredients:
(serves 6 to 8)
2 – pounds Wild Idea Premium Ground Buffalo
2 – tablespoons olive oil

1/2 – teaspoon mustard

1 – teaspoon ketchup

1 – teaspoon thyme

2 – teaspoon salt & pepper

Preparation:
1. Mix all ingredients, but Buffalo together.
2. Add Buffalo & mix thoroughly with hands. Pat into 6 patties.
3. Place in refrigerator to firm up burgers.
4. Grill over high heat for 3 minutes each side for Medium Rare. Dan & I like to drizzle a little more olive oil over and sear for another half minute per each side for medium. This give the burgers a bit of a crust on the outside.
5. Remove from the grill, and sprinkle with a high quality finishing salt. Allow to rest for a couple of minutes before serving.

Serve on high quality buns, with your favorite toppings.

Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Butternut Squash

Today’s Menu: Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus, Roasted Butternut Squash, and Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

Popped in a couple of Eggo Low Fat Nutri Grain Waffles in the toaster and made a cup of the Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. I’ve loved Eggo Waffles since I was a kid. Well not a lot going on outside today, Rain and Thunderstorms on and off all day. So it was all indoor fun today. I cleaned the stove and refrigerator. Then hit the pantry, checked the expiration dates on everything and straightened it up. watched some TV the last half of the afternoon. The oven is going to get a work out tonight as I’m baking the whole meal. I’m having a Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus, Roasted Butternut Squash, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

I purchased the fresh Atlantic Salmon from the Kroger Seafood Department. I’m going to prepare it using the Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon recipe. I haven’t had Salmon or used this recipe in a while. To make I’ll need; salmon fillets (4 ounces each), 4 teaspoons Dijon Mustard, 4 teaspoons Honey, 2 slices Whole Grain Bread (torn into pieces), 3 tablespoons finely chopped Walnuts, 2 teaspoons Extra Light Olive Oil, and 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme. To prepare it; Start by preheating the oven to 400°. Place the Salmon on a baking sheet coated with Pam cooking spray. Mix the Mustard and Honey; brush over the Salmon. Place the Bread in a food processor; pulse until coarse crumbs form. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in Walnuts, Olive Oil and Thyme; press it onto the Salmon Fillet.

 

Bake 12-15 minutes or topping is lightly browned and fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. The Salmon came out perfect, moist and delicious. The Walnut Crust is perfect for the Salmon. The Walnuts, Honey, Dijon Mustard, Thyme, and fresh Bread Crumbs all combine perfectly. Love this recipe.

 

 

 

 

I prepared Roasted Asparagus for one side. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Roasted Asparagus Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving.

 

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! And this too has quickly become a favorite. I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Crumbled Bacon Bits, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

2 teaspoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Directions:

Today’s Menu: Baked Creole Salmon w/ Mustard Greens and Baby Red Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast I had a bowl of Cheerios’ and the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, Outside another nice day, 83 degrees, mostly sunny, but a bit more humid. Right after Breakfast I headed to Meijer, needed quite a few items. Back at home I took Mom’s Car up and had it washed and then took my car up and had it washed. Next stopped by the post office and mailed some letters and on the ATM and stopped and got gas. Nice day out today. For Dinner tonight something new, Baked Creole Salmon w/ Mustard Greens and Baby Red Potatoes.

 

 

 

Seen these dishes being made on the new Gordon Ramsay show, the “F” Word. These looked so good I had to try them. My recipes aren’t exact as the originals but both turned out delicious! So here’s my version of Creole Salmon w/ Mustard Greens and Baby Red Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

I had stopped by Meijer yesterday to pick up the ingredients for my Dinner tonight. I’m using a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet. I had purchased a 1/2 of a huge fillet that I cut into 4 smaller fillets. I froze 3 and kept one out for my Dinner tonight. To make the Salmon I’ll need; 1 Salmon Fillet, McCormick Griner Sea Salt, Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and Dried Thyme. To prepare it; I first preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Next I got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I seasoned the Salmon  Fillet with the Thyme, Sea Salt and Creole Seasoning. I put the Fillet in the pan; skin side down. Baked it for 13 minutes; until done and fork flakey. The Salmon came out perfect! Done just right with excellent seasoning.

 

 

 

 

Now for the Mustard Greens and Baby Red Potatoes. I’ll need the following;Baby Red Potatoes, Mustard Greens (1 bunch), 1 Clove Garlic (minced), Lemon Juice, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, Extra Light Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Parsley (chopped)

 

 

 

I’ll be using Baby Red Potatoes and 1 bunch of Mustard Greens. I filled a large pot 1/2 way with water, salted it, and brought it to a boil. Added the Potatoes, reduced the heat and until almost tender. Drained the water and laid the Potatoes on the cutting board. I then used the bottom of a coffee cup and lightly smashed the Potatoes. Next I grabbed a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Potatoes. After 3 minutes I added a 1//2 Clove Garlic. In another 2 minutes I added a pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter, to brown the Potatoes, and seasoned with McCormick Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

As the Butter was melted I washed my Mustard Greens and patted dry with a paper towel. I then added the Mustard Greens to the skillet. I cooked until it was wilted and tender. Be careful not overcook the Greens. Removed everything to a bowl; seasoned it with a splash of Lemon and chopped Parsley. This makes one nice side dish! I love Potatoes anyway but this is really a great way to prepare the Potatoes and the Mustard Greens, This is the first time I’ve had Mustard Greens in a very long time. The Greens came out tender and worked perfectly with the Red Potatoes. Along with the Salmon this turned out to be one delicious Dinner! For Dessert later a Dole No Sugar Added Diced Peach Cup.

Today’s Menu: Walnut Crusted Salmon w/ Brown and Wild Rice and Asparagus

 

Walnut Crusted Salmon w Brown and Wild Rice and Asparagus 011
Hello everyone! I started my day off with a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and a couple of slices Smithfield Anytime Sliced Ham. If you’re a Ham lover, like myself, you’ll love the Smithfield Anytime Sliced Ham! Helped Mom with a few chores around the house. Then headed outdoors and got the leaf blower out and cleaned around the wooden deck and driveway.In the early afternoon went for my 6 month checkup at the oncologist. Everything looked good he said. I’m very sad to learn though my Oncologist that I was with since 1979 to when he retired 2 years ago had passed away. Rest in Peace my Friend. Back home did a few things around the house. It was another beautiful day out, 82 and sunny! Then for dinner tonight I prepared a Walnut Crusted Salmon w/ Brown and Wild Rice and Asparagus.

 

 

Walnut Crusted Salmon w Brown and Wild Rice and Asparagus 001

The Walnut-Crusted Salmon recipe comes from an issue of Taste of Home Magazine. I came across it a while back, and now it’s my favorite Salmon recipe! I had purchased the Wild Caught Atlantic Salmon from Kroger yesterday.

 

 

 

 

 
I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. To prepare the Salmon I needed; Dijon mustard, honey, whole wheat bread (torn into pieces), finely chopped walnuts, canola oil, and dried thyme. Then I preheated the oven to 400°. Placed the Salmon on a baking sheet that was coated with cooking spray. Then mixed Walnut Crusted Salmon w Brown and Wild Rice and Asparagus 004the mustard and honey together and brushed it over the salmon. Placed the bread in a food processor and pulsed until coarse crumbs formed, transferred to a small bowl. Stirred in the walnuts, oil and thyme and pressed it onto the salmon. Baked 12 minutes until the topping was lightly browned and the fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. I’ve left the original recipe along with the web link at the bottom of the post. If you’re a Salmon lover you have to try this recipe! The sweetness of the Honey and sharpness of the Dijon Mustard are perfect together. I love regular Baked Salmon but with the combo of all the ingredients it just makes the Salmon pop with flavor and a fantastic Crust.

 
For one side dish I microwaved some Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley Brown and Wild Rice. It comes in a microwavable Pouch. Just heat for 90 seconds and serve! Rice comes out perfect, steaming hot and fluffy.
Then I also prepared Roasted Asparagus. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Roasted Asparagus 2Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving. One delicious dinner tonight! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.
