Bunless Buffalo Sliders and Sweet Potato Fries

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

I am stuffed and yaaaaaaaaaaaawning. The past hour I've just been bumming around Craig's List, looking for a new job. I graduate in December and really want to find a job in the PR/Marketing field, in which I'll have a degree. I'm also looking at administrative assistant positions... pretty much anything with health insurance benefits! Ugh, stressful.

Dinner was so good tonight. I made delicious little Buffalo Sliders.

I used a pound of buffalo burger (I've got like 5 pounds in the freezer, thanks to my grandparents who buy 1/2 a buffalo every year to share with all their kids and grandkids) and mixed in greek dressing, feta cheese, onions, bread crumbs and egg beaters. I shaped it into seven small patties (odd number, I know) and "fried" them in a wok on the stove.

In a separate pan I sauteed mushrooms and onions. I brushed the tops of the burgers with some more greek dressing, added tomato slices, the mushrooms and onions and some Italian blend cheese, then put them in the oven at 400 degrees for four minutes to melt the cheese.

I served them sans bun, w/ sweet potato fries and steamed veggies on the side. I made seven of them, planning to have leftovers for lunches this week, but I obviously underestimated the appetite of my 6'5, 205-pound baseball player fiancee. I had two slides and he ate ALL THE REST. He never ceases to amaze me.

I did feel like I need some dessert tonight though. So I toasted a chocolate VitaTop Muffin and added some sugar free cool whip and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Perfection.

Okay I'm going to go lay in bed. Tomorrow will be a good day, tomorrow will be a good day, tomorrow will be a good day....

The power of positive thinking, right?
