To celebrate, I wanted to feature one of my favorite recipes from this summer. We used Ellie Krieger's recipes a lot this summer, mainly because she is so nutrition-conscious. Just because something is calorie-conscious doesn't always mean completely healthy though, and these cheeseburgers were sinfully delicious. In fact, they definitely fooled John! By using ground turkey, a smaller amount of meat and cheese, but stuffing it inside the burger, John felt like he was eating a downright delicious dish. And why tell him any differently, right?
Wednesday night for dinner, I will be making some bean chili, sitting down on the couch in my Giants jersgey and ushering in the fall! I've been pinning a host of recipes that I want to make for football and can't wait to share them with you! First up, are some jalapeno poppers like I made a few years back. My grandma, Awa, has never had jalapenos before - EVER. John and I are going to enjoy introducing her to them!
2 slices of bacon (we like reduced sodium)
1 pound ground turkey
4 teaspoons horseradish
4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 whole wheat hamburger buns
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cook the bacon on a cookie sheet for about 4-6 minutes, until done. Remove from the oven and let cool. Crumble the bacon. In the meantime, divide the turkey into 8 small patties. Spread 1 teaspoon horseradish on 4 of the patties. Top those 4 patties evenly with cheddar cheese and bacon crumbles. Top with a plain meat patty and pinch around the edges to seal the burger closed. Season the burgers with salt and pepper. Preheat the grill and cook the burgers over medium-high heat, until the cheese is melted inside and the meat is cooked through (about 8-10 minutes). Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato, and ketchup, if desired.
Until the next time my oven is on!
