The local food bank will be getting four large donation bags filled with cans tomorrow. lmao.gif

Sounds like a good one. Burgers can be done soooooo many ways. They don't even have to be beef either. Ground pork BBQ burger? Why not! A lot of people have gotten into ground turkey lately, but they screw it up by making a turkey burger try to be like a beef burger. Don't do that.

I like to make a Thanksgiving turkey burger. Season the meat with some diced (or dried chopped) onion, just a dash of garlic, salt pepper... and poultry seasoning. There's the trick there, that last one. Season the meat the way you would turkey stuffing. Serve on a lightly toasted bun or hard roll, maybe a potato bread bun if you can find them, garnished with mayo, and cranberry jelly, maybe some walnuts. Things like walnuts or dates could also be added into your meat mixture. I am also keen to try this on some thick pumpernickel bread that's been toasted in a little butter like you would a grilled cheese.

I went on a burger kick this summer because Aldi's has a great deal on frozen patties.

I was putting all of these on onion rolls for the most part.

The Polack - Diced raw onion, swiss, Ken's Russian dressing (which is a like a Thousand Island but a little better.)

The American - American cheese, ketchup, a little mayo, shredded lettuce and a slice of tomato.

The Italian - Slice of fresh mozzarella, tomato, fresh basil.

The NY Italian - Provolone, pepperoni slices, marinara sauce. (Reduce tomato sauce for less messy, more concentrated flavor.)

The Roadhouse - Sharp cheddar, sauteed onions and mushrooms, bacon, BBQ sauce. (Swiss also works well here.)

The best veggie stir fry sauce I ever made was just a tbsp of teriyaki sauce and a 1/4 cup of ranch dressing dressing. Pour that over your veggies while cooking and scoop onto a bed of rice when cooked. nom.

Chinese ranch? chuckle.gif

Kikkoman makes an okay stir fry sauce.

A little bit of oil, soy sauce, with garlic and ginger powder is pretty easy.

I really need to work up my asian sauce menu tho.

Everything you're eating is so unhealthy. Canned everything is just bad. It's all processed, has tons of salt and preservatives.

Locally and ecologically produced foods.
Otherwise, you support Monsanto/Syngenta et al.
Also the only way to eat non-toxic.

The cans are running out
Same food for years and years
I hate the food I eat
When the world is running down
You make the best of whats still around"
