Kid Tested Mother Approved

This was a big hit.  I think it helped I whipped up some fry sauce with canola oil mayonnaise and ketchup.  The kids loved it.  Genevieve was asking for more "hamburgers".  Yummy and Guilt Free.  

"Naked" Turkey Burgers
Turkey Burger:
1 lb. extra lean ground turkey
1 egg white
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
1/4 tsp.
garlic powder
1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
2 tsp.
Dijon mustard
How to Prepare
1 Fire up the grill!!
2 Combine all ingredients for turkey burgers together in a large bowl. Mix well using your hands – yes, your hands! Divide the mixture into 4 even parts and shape into 4 patties

Sweet Potato Fries
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 6 Servings
Serving size:4 or 5 wedges
You'll Need:
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 small)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise, and place it flat side down on a cutting board. Cut the potato halves into 1-inch-wide wedges.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the oil, chili powder, and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Place the potatoes on a roasting pan and brush with the oil mixture. Lay the potatoes flesh side down on the pan and put the pan in the oven.
  3. Cook until potatoes, turning once, until soft, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and season with remaining1/2 teaspoon salt. Let the wedges cool for a bit, and serve warm.
For dunking, ketchup always works (at 15 calories per tablespoon), or try a squeeze of fresh lime juice for a British chips-and-vinegar effect.
