Ever wonder what you can do with extra taco meat? This isn’t an exact recipe, but it’s a wonderful method for using extra taco meat in another reimagined meal. It’s still fairly light and very tasty, even your kids will love it! Sort of a mix between a burger and a sloppy Joe, but better. Plus, there is room to make it your own. Try it soon with your family!
I was watching the Rachael Ray show the other day. Every month she creates a “Burger of the Month” recipe for her magazine. Rachael asked a friend of hers what her favorite meal was growing up. Her friend told her that she liked when her mom made pepper steak. So Rachael created a pepper steak burger. You can check out that recipe here. But this made me think; what was one of my favorites growing up? I loved when my mom made chicken Cordon Bleu in the slow cooker. And so, the inspiration was created! Thank you mom for your delicious take on Chicken Cordon Bleu! And I’ve turned it into a burger! I even give you a choice of two different condiments to add: a creamy, garlicky mustard sauce, or a creamy honey mustard (inspired by Rachael Ray). Now everyone else can enjoy it too!

I went to the Temecula Spice Shop the other day and found GREEN chili powder. I came home and made this super fricken delicious recipe (thank you Rachael Ray)! I doubled the recipe because I new I would want leftovers! So, so, so, so good!

What better way to enjoy a luscious All-American burger without feeling guilty about it, then with a slider right!? Yes…this recipe uses turkey, but it’s absolutely tasty and super juicy, without all the calories. Plus, portion control is key! And how can you resist that oozing cheese inside. I’ve also included a few of my favorite spreads to further pack on the flavor. Serve these up to your friends and family before football season is over!

It’s October finally…and Fall…and cooler weather…our birthdays kick off this holiday season. What better way to start off the holidays with our first ever cheat meal! We always get together and cook our own Oktoberfest. Last year, we made homemade sausages. This year, we decided to make a fun cheat meal so that you can all indulge with us! How do homemade sausage slider burgers sound? Oh yeah, and they’re smothered with beer-braised onions and beer-cheese sauce! We also made Guinness mustard for fun! Don’t forget to make a side of German potato salad! PROST! (That’s “cheers” in German)!

So it’s the summer right? The season of sun, BBQs, Sangrias and oh so sinful food LOL! Well I’ve done all that and then some, so to be able to get back into healthy eating with the start of this blog is so refreshing. We still have a couple of months of summer so now comes the opportunity to get back in shape, in time to show off those new bikinis and swim trunks! I discovered the original recipe for these burgers in an anti-inflammatory/rheumatoid arthritis meal plan and adjusted a few ingredients to further lower the calories and carbs.
