Turkey Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries.

One of the few things that I do not attempt to cook are steaks and hamburgers. I just don't do them very well... So tonight Michael made Turkey burgers and I made the sweet potato fries. Both are delicious and gone. *sheepish grin*.

A few years ago, I worked in a little restaurant in Opelika, Alabama. The chef there insisted that we use this seasoning Dirk's dirt on the steaks. Well after tasting it there, I had to find out if I could get my hands on some for myself. Well we found it, at a little place in Montgomery (http://www.filetandvine.com/), they handmake it and only sell it there. We (michael) puts it in our hamburgers and on steaks, and it truly gives the meat a taste that can't be copied.

Turkey Burger
1 lb Lean ground Turkey
1 egg
1 handful of spinach chopped finely
1 package of plain instant oatmeal
Moore's Sauce (marinade like Dale's sauce, just less sodium)
Sprinkle of Dirk's Dirt

Mix all of the ingredients together. Form patties, and let chill for 10-15 minutes. We put them on the grill, but I'm sure you could do them in a skillet if need be.

We also splurged and added a piece of F.F. American cheese on top. Then put it onto a Pepperidge Farm thin. Lettuce, Tomato, Pickle, ketchup and mustard.

Sweet Potato Fries
1 Sweet Potato per person

Pre heat oven to 400 degrees. With a sharp knife, slice the sweet potatoes into thin slices. Spray a cookie sheet (If they are bigger potatoes, I have to use 2 sheets) with PAM. Spread the sweet potato slices in 1 layer across the cookie sheet, Spray the tops of the sweet potato with another bit of PAM. Sprinkle with Pepper (and salt if you want).
Bake for 20 minutes, flip the potatoes over and you can bake for another 20 minutes, or put the broiler on low and broil them. If you choose to broil them, watch them closely, because they will crisp up pretty quick on you.

Our whole dinner tonight was WW 8.5 pts.
