As you might be aware Dave and I go to trivia on Thursday nights.
We go here.
I almost always get the same thing – a BBQ Cheddar Turkey Burger. It’s difficult to get a good turkey burger out. It’s usually frozen and pretty much flavorless. The BBQ sauce is delish and it’s a fresh turkey burger. Plus it comes with pickles and onion strings on top.
Nothing wrong with that.
I also always get fries with the burger – hence the extra baggage I’m carting around lately.
In an effort to keep myself from desperately wanting one tonight – I made some for Dave and I for dinner last night.
We made a trip to Trader Joe’s. My Fitness Pal on my iPhone lists calorie counts for Trader Joe’s stuff. The total calorie count for this meal is a little over 500 calories – INCLUDING a tiny glass of white wine.
I sprayed a grill pan with Pam and a drizzle of olive oil. I seared one side of the burgers then added onions and red bell peppers. The burgers are seasoned with pepper and garlic powder. I deglazed the pan with some soy sauce.
Truth be told it was way better than the burger I usually get at the restaurant. Soy sauce is the key.
Let’s see how my willpower stands up to the challenge tonight!
