Last Night's Dinner
Mini Hamburgers and Sweet Potato Fries
The other day, my husband had mentioned how much he missed hamburgers and french fries. So, I thought I would surprise him with this...
For the Mini Hamburgers, I used 1 pound extra lean ground beef (ground turkey would work too) and a little bit of my favorite seasoning salt. I made 7 little patties and grilled them. Each patty was about 175 calories.
For the Sweet Potato Fries, I used a recipe found here. I did make some adjustments...
1 sweet potato
Pam cooking spray instead of olive oil
1/2t dried parsley
fresh ground pepper
Chop sweet potato in sticks roughly the same time. Place in bowl and spray with Pam. Add spices and toss. Place neatly on cooking sheet, so that nothing is touching each other. Bake 425 for 15-mins. Turn fries over and bake for 15-20 mins more. The ladies at Our Best Bites has the baking instructions down to a science. Check them out if I am not clear.
Using one sweet potato, gave me 3 generous bandster sized portions at about 40 calories a serving.
