We are still working through the list of recipes chosen by my kids from some of my healthy eating resources. This was one of the kids' favorites so far. From Martha Stewart Everyday (Jan/Feb 2011 issue - "the light issue"), are the mini cheeseburgers with oven fries. What's not to like, right?
For the burgers (modified to give the beef a little more kick):
1 lb extra lean ground beef
1 tbsp worcestshire sauce
garlic powder, to taste
salt & pepper to taste
reduced fat cheddar, sliced
whole wheat dinner rolls
sliced tomato, to top
lettuce, to top
Combine beef, worcestshire, siracha, garlic, salt & pepper. Form into mini burger patties. Heat cast iron skillet to smoking. Cook burgers on both sides to your liking. Top with cheddar. Serve on whole wheat buns with desired toppings.
For the fries:
3 lb large russet potatoes, cut into strips
4 tsp veg oil
salt & pepper, to taste
In a large bowl, cover potato strips with cold water. Cover and soak for at least 3 hours or overnight. Heat oven to 400. Coat two baking sheets with cooking spray. Drain and pat dry potatoes. Toss in a bowl with oil and season with salt & pepper. Bake on sheets until golden brown and crisp. About 45 minutes. Toss on sheet and bake for another 10 - 15 minutes.
So good! I took a bite and ate some fries before I remembered to shoot some pics.
