Fully Loaded Burger Bowls

Fully Loaded Burger Bowls

A whole new way to burger.

So for all you carb avoiders, I’ve come up with a whole new way to enjoy burgers without the bun. Instead, you serve all the toppings in – the burger itself! These Fully Loaded Burger Bowls are burgers, filled with your favorite topping! It a whole new way to burger!

 

Summertime, as we all know, is burger time. There’s nothing quite like a nice, juicy burger, hot off the grill, with all your favorite fixings – bacon, cheese, and some nice fried mushrooms.
Of course, a traditional burger also comes with one other thing: the bun. And for anyone who’s trying to steer clear of carbs, that kind of ruins the whole meal.

So for all you carb-avoiders, I’ve come up with a whole new way to enjoy burgers without the bun. Instead, you serve all the toppings in – the burger itself!

Instead of forming the beef into patties, you shape it into a little bowl and load it up with cheese, mushrooms, and bacon. Then put those filled bowls on a baking pan and bake them under a foil tent for half an hour, so all the juices from the meat blend together with those tasty toppings. You can top these with barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, diced chives, or all three.

Here’s another plus: you don’t need to wait for nice weather so you can fire up the grill. These Fully Loaded Burger Bowls are good rain or shine!

Feta-Brined Chicken Sandwiches

Feta-Brined Chicken Sandwiches

Chicken and whipped feta sandwiches are the ideal addition to any springtime picnic basket.

 

The secret to incredibly flavorful chicken cutlets is a quick marinade in feta brine in advance of grilling. Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple then whips the feta cheese with lemon juice and olive oil to use as a spread for the excellent sandwiches here.

 

 

Active: 30 mins         Total: 1 hr           Yield: 4

 

 

Ingredients:

1/2 pound feta, crumbled, plus 3/4 cup of the brine
1 tablespoon Louisiana-style hot sauce, preferably Tabasco
Four 4-ounce chicken cutlets
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
Kosher salt
Pepper
Four 6-inch ciabatta rolls, split and toasted
Arugula (not baby), sliced cucumber, red onion and seeded piquillo peppers, for serving

 

 

Directions:

Step 1

In a large resealable plastic bag, mix the feta brine and hot sauce. Add the chicken cutlets, seal the bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse the feta cheese and lemon juice. Slowly blend in the 1/3 cup of oil until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Preheat a grill pan. Remove the chicken from the brine and pat dry; discard the brine. Brush with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the cutlets over moderately high heat, turning once, until cooked through, about 5 minutes total.

Step 4

Spread the rolls with some of the feta. Top with the chicken, arugula, cucumber, onion and peppers and serve.

Tater Tot Waffles with Prosciutto and Mustard

Tater Tot Waffles with Prosciutto and Mustard

We’re all for a delicious food hybrid, and tater tot waffles are no exception. This version is made with prosciutto, mixed greens, and mustard, but the topping options are endless—from to .

 

Jen Pelka of The Riddler in San Francisco makes supercrunchy and delicious waffles using Tater Tots. One of her more hearty ways of serving the waffles is topped with prosciutto and mixed greens, along with a quick mix of créme fraîche and mustard.

 

Total: 40 mins          Yield:  Four 8-inch waffles

Ingredients:

Nonstick cooking spray
8 cups frozen Tater Tots (32 ounces thawed)
Flaky sea salt
¼ cup crème fraîche
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
2 cups baby arugula
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
12 slices prosciutto
Thinly sliced cornichons (for serving)

 

Directions:

Step 1

Heat an 8-inch waffle iron; preheat the oven to 200°. Grease the waffle iron with nonstick spray. Spread 2 cups of the tots on it; sprinkle with salt. Close and cook on medium high until nearly crisp, about 5 minutes. Open the waffle iron and fill in any holes in the waffle with more tots, then close and cook until golden and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet; keep warm in the oven. Repeat with the remaining tots.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix the crème fraîche and mustard. In another bowl, toss the arugula with the lemon juice and olive oil. Top each warm waffle with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mustard crème fraîche, 3 slices of prosciutto and 1/2 cup of the dressed arugula. Garnish with cornichons and serve.

Vegetarian Lasagna With Spinach and Broccoli

Vegetarian Lasagna With Spinach and Broccoli

This tasty veggie lasagna will fill you right up.

Your search for an easy vegetarian lasagna stops right here! This particular recipe, which features spinach lasagna with a healthy dose of broccoli, three cheeses, basil, and your favorite red sauce (store-bought or homemade marinara sauce work perfectly!) will make you forget all about meat. We opted for frozen veggies because they are already cooked, but you can load this lasagna with other vegetables, too. Sauté peppers and mushrooms, and then stir into your tomato sauce for an extra boost of nutrients. We also picked Pecorino Romano instead of your classic Parmesan for a sharper flavor (no bland vegetarian recipes, thank you very much!). P.S. If you’re looking for the best meat lasagna, try our favorite lasagna with meat sauce.

Ingredients:

1 10-oz package frozen leaf spinach, thawed
1 10-oz package frozen broccoli florets, thawed
1 16-oz container part-skim ricotta
