Some Relaxing And Some Cooking...

I ended up being lazy this afternoon and looking up wedding dresses online :-D I then got bored and made some chickpea cutlets from Vcon. I then layed down and watched more Married With Children until Adam got home from work. After he got out of the shower I got everything out to make these yummy burgers:

Apple Maple Turkey Burgers with Maple-Dijon Sauce

4 servings

For Maple-Dijon Sauce:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons real maple syrup
For Burgers:
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey breast
1/4 cup real bacon bits
1/2 cup chunky applesauce
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
2 tablespoons real maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Hamburger Buns
Hamburger condiments
Set up grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Oil grate when ready to start cooking.
For Maple-Dijon Sauce:
in a small bowl, stir to combine mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and 2 tablespoons maple syrup; set aside.
For Turkey Burgers: In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients for burgers. Wet hands to prevent sticking and shape into 4 patties.
Place burgers on hot oiled grill for 5 to 6 minutes per side or until done.
Serve on buns with traditional burger condiments and a dollop of maple-Dijon sauce.
Note - Indoor: Prepare burgers as directed. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. When oil is hot add burgers and cook 5 to 7 minutes per side or until done.

I used chicken instead of turkey and left out the maple Dijon sauce, and the bacon bits on ours. I also had half a sweet potato and a couple of Adam's fries on the side. While cooking Adam and I split a Blue Moon Harvest Moon. YUM! YUM! This dinner totally hit the spot! After dinner we cleaned up and ran out to get some cake decorating frosting for Joe's cake tomorrow. We stopped by my parents house also to pick up the cake holder.When we got home Adam tried my cookies I made and of course I had a couple more. I need to get these out of the house, I'm glad it made a big batch or I would be baking more for NYE!!! HAHAH I'm going to watch some more tv and hope I can stay up as late as possible so I'm not up too early tomorrow, 8 was perfect this morning. I plan on a nice long walk on the treadmill tomorrow since its gonna be a birthday cake kinda night :-D
