I could eat my weight in French Fries. And yours.
My husband told me this dinner was better then 5 Guys. I kid you not! (He may have been lying...but I choose to believe him).
This meal actually reminded me of the days at my Mom's house when I was hungover and needed comfort food but I was too hungover to actually go out and get it. So I'd make a veggie burger or something and some oven fries. And I was cured!
A lot of people think ground turkey is boring, but it's only as boring as you make it! I prefer it over ground beef for sure, it's so versatile and SO much better for you. The addition of ricotta cheese adds the moisture you need and the Dijon adds a little bit of background flavor. You will be addicted! My husband had his on a whole grain bagel, I didn't even need the bun (And I love buns. I'm not going to say that I don't mean butts cause I love those too.)
Good For Your Thighs Burger N Fries
1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
1 tbsp ricotta cheese
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/8 cup (1/2 blue container) Feta Cheese
1/4 of a small avocado, sliced
Heat a large pan to medium high heat. Spray a pan with coconut oil spray (or whatever you have). Mix the turkey with ricotta and Dijon until combined. Form into 4 patties. When the pan is hot, add the burger to the pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Add feta to the top and a little water to the pan to steam. Slice avocado and place on top when you're ready to serve and enjoy!
3 small potatoes, sliced into fries and soaked in cold water
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
Sprinkle sea salt and pepper
Remove the potatoes from the cold water and dry thoroughly. Add to a bowl with spices and olive oil. Toss to coat. Lay in one layer on a parchment or tin foil lined cookie sheet that has been lightly sprayed with Pam or coconut oil. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes, flip fries over. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until browned. You can broil for a few minutes at the end if you like them a little more brown.
I served these magical foods with some green beans sauteed with garlic and onions.
I hope you enjoy as much as I do!!
Tip-Some bleu cheese and bacon would be killer on this!! (Not as healthy though...but amazing.)
(21 Day Fixers- I measured my burger out equal 2 red, 1 blue and the Fries are 1 yellow and 1 tsp. )
