Italian Turkey Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

Dinner Tonight: Italian Turkey Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

Started the morning with an Egg Beater's Egg White Scramble and Mozzarella Cheese on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A very good way to start my day! So after my morning workout and a shower it was house cleaning day. Mom and Dad went out the Church Seniors for Lunch so I was able to get everything done. Started a load of laundry for Mom also. Cool and cloudy out today, a high of 72 degrees. It's really been a mild August around here. Usually August is one of our hottest months but so far very mild. Got the cart out for a while also. For dinner tonight it's an Italian Turkey Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

I had a half a package of the Jennie - O Lean Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey in the freezer so I

decided to make Italian Turkey Burgers with it. Removed it from the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. It already has the Italian Seasoning but I still added Sea Salt, Dried Oregano, and Dried Basil to it. I had enough leftover to make a couple of Burgers. So after seasoning the Ground Turkey I formed it into 2 patties. Using a medium skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, I pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Fried each pattie about 4 1/2 minutes per side, flipping them once. The Burgers fried up perfect! I served them on a Aunt Millie's Reduced Calories Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. Topped it with Ragu Homestyle Sauce and a slice of fresh Mozzarella. really enjoyed these!

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black
Pepper. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte Sliced Peaches.
