Sante Fe Turkey Burgers with Red Cabbage Slaw and Purple Potatochips

This yummy in your tummy menu was inspired by my disire for my family to eat healthier and also brought to y'all courtesy of Beano.

Because I'm a Southern gal, I love to cook yummy in your tummy goodness. However, some foods just don't agee with my tummy. Well, when I was asked to try Beano(see post here), I was actually able to eat the foods I love. From cabbage to my favorite grains, I've included a simple menu for your family to enjoy.

The great part about Sante Fe turkey burgers is how easy they are to make. With a few simple ingredients, y'all can treat your family to yummy in their tummy goodness.


Ingredients:
2 lbs. ground turkey
1 pkg. UNCLE BEN'S® WHOLE GRAIN MEDLEY™ Santa Fe
1 pkg. onion rolls
1 large red bell pepper
1 large red onion
horseradish
chili powder/paprika
1 container feta cheese
oil
1 medium red cabbage
1 cup mayonaise
season salt
salt
pepper
purple potatoes
cooking spray

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Shread red cabbage into small pieces, add mayonaise and mix well. Add season salt to taste, mix and chill in the fridge until ready to serve- about 30 minutes.
  • Prepare the turkey burgers. Add ground turkey to a mixing bowl, add salt and pepper to taste, combine well. Add the whole grain rice and 1/4 cup feta cheese, mix well. Form 4 turkey patties. Spray baking dish with cooking spray and place burgers in pre-heated oven for about 30 minutes or until done.
  • For the veggies to serve on top of burgers: slice bell pepper and onion into strips, sautee in skillet with a little cooking oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Wait until about 5 minutes before you take the burgers out of the oven to prepare veggies.
  • For purple potato chips: rinse about 20 petite purple potatoes, slice thin and place in a deep fryer with enough oil to cover tops. These will cook fast, so make sure potato chips don't burn. Cook about two minutes, remove to paper towel to drain, sprinkle with season salt.
  • Spread for the burgers: Combine 1 cup horseradish with 1 Tbs. chili powder or paprika, add about 1/4 cup feta cheese, mix well, spread on onion roll on on top of turkey burger.

Cooking With Beans Book Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

 I grew up in the South eating beans! I love beans, but they can be boring. Rhiana Jones has come up with great creative and cheap ways to make easy meals with beans in Cooking With Beans.

Cooking With Beans is 40 pages filled with exciting 5 chapters of yummy recipes from breakfast to snack. You'll get your fill of beans. My favorite recipe is the BBQ Baked Beans of course!

You can purchase the Kindle edition for only $0.99.


Description:
Pinto beans, garbanzo, lentils and black, beans of all types are a frugal and nutritious ingredient for any dish.

Beans are low in fat, high in protein and vitamin C. They give you a great big nutritional bang for a little tiny monetary buck. They're also packed with fiber which helps you keep a healthy digestive track. 

Unfortunately, they can also sometimes be a little boring. Check out Cooking with Beans for some easy, frugal and very tasty recipes to take the boring out of beans. These family friendly meals will also turn your kids onto the goodness of beans.

Don’t eat beans for all their health and pocketbook attributes; eat them because they’re delicious and versatile. In Cooking with Beans, Rhiana Jones shows you how to give low-cost dried or canned beans a starring role from breakfast, lunch, and snacks to dinner and dessert—yes, there are three dessert recipes. 

Packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber, legumes are a great choice if you’re watching your money or your weight; if you want a low-fat food that’s also high in protein; or if you want to prepare for a disaster with a long-lasting, easy-to-store food that can be part of your everyday life.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
