We drank a lot of tea and water to get us by. Dinner was a bit early because we
were pretty hungry. Oh and it was pretty darn yummy too! The main part of the meal was called Inside Out Burgers and it was supposed to be with ground turkey but I ground up some chicken breasts instead.
Here's the recipe:
Inside Out Cheeseburgers
1 1/4 c. ground turkey at least 90% lean
1/4 c ketchup
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
4 ounces reduced fat shredded or sliced cheese
In a large bowl, mix ground turkey, ketchup, mustard and garlic powder until combined.
Form this in to 8 large thin patties.
Place an ounce of cheese in the center of one patty. Top the cheese with a second patty. Crimp the edges of the two patties together, working your way around the cheese, so that the cheese center is totally enclosed. ( no cheese oozing out the sides this way )
Repeat this process to form 3 more burgers.
Grill, pan saute or broil the patties until cooked through, 5-7 min per side.
I used the George Foreman grill. 6 minutes total.
Sadly this makes 4 burgers and a serving is 1 burger ( no bun!!)
It was difficult to look at the other 2 patties on the plate and know they were
for another day!!
But otherwise Day 1 went off without a hitch!
Phew! On to day 2!
