The Chicken I Forgot

It's clear that I didn't write for almost all of February. A lot of recipes were banked in February, though. Of course sometimes you risk forgetting a few things and in this case I don't even remember what the recipe was.

Obviously the main dish is a chicken breast. There are kalamata olives, probably some onions, tomatoes, and peppers. It could be chicken breasts provençal. But I don't really know. And clearly I was in a rush if the side dish was so obviously frozen mixed veggies (don't knock 'em).

Sure looks tasty.

The Turkey Turkey Cheeseburger

While my #1 bar food is definitively chicken wings, a close second is burgers. Beefburgers, bison burgers, and today's dish, turkey burgers. This isn't a terribly complicated recipe.

- 1 pound of ground turkey (will server 3 - 4)
- one package of uncured turkey bacon
- one small white onion (shredded)
- one beefsteak tomato
- iceberg lettuce
- cheddar cheese (shredded or sliced)
- frozen french fries (hand cut by yourself if you want to be classy)
- salt
- pepper

Pre-heat broiler.

Use an icecream scoop to scoop out equal measures of ground turkey. Without touching with your hands, place on a  cast iron skillet pre-heated over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fresh ground pepper and salt. Flatten by pushing a handful of onion down into meat. Cook 2 - 3 minutes on one side. Flatted with spatula and flip, cooking another minute.

Remove burger patties to a plate, but leave heat on. Place turkey bacon on skillet and cook until crispy on both sides. Put burgers back in skillet, top with cheese and bacon, then put in broiler for two minutes.

Toast or not toast the buns however you see fit. Personally I like toasty. Garnish and condiment to taste.

Cook the fries however you see fit.
