It might be a lot like yours (or not at all)

My real comfort food…(re-invented)

Ah yes, the cheeseburger and fries…my all-time favorite, pig-out, comfort meal! (I had a lot of happy meals as a youngin).

Here is the classic make-over where we turn this into a more healthy dish, suited for my current style of cooking. Turkey burger (next time, need to season this WAY more since it lacks all the fat in ground beef)…with my fav cheese, Pepper Jack, some lettuce and ketchup. This big fat burger was paired with delicious oven-roasted Sweet Potato fries!

As I sit here watching E! News, I think about my dinner planned for tonight–Grilled Honey Dill Salmon Kabobs…and I can’t help but really wish (after this incredibly draining day) that I could sit back and stuff myself with a burger and fries while I watch a movie and drink a glass of wine 🙂

 Turkey Burger w/ Sweet Potato Fries

  1. congrats on eating healthier!

    I’ll keep the seasoning tip in mind because I am going to make turkey burgers or a turkey loaf soon. I didn’t think I could get away with it but when I was talking about making hot sandwiches/burgers the other day, steve actually piped up with “I would so eat a turkey burger for dinner.” I about died of shock. 😉

    and sweet potato fries are goooood.
