Now baking is my thing. To say I love it is an understatement. Cooking savory on the other hand is something I like but not my strong point. That being said, gosh darn it I will work on improving it. I was inspired by two pretty awesome ladies when creating this savory meal (Kat and Jeanette) This past Saturday I had the most fun making this savory meal. It sounded amazing. Simple, not too intimidating, a good place to start. And boy was it a success!! Indeed it was. Not much a recipe here just having fun in the kitchen trying new things and adventuring out of my comfort zone.
I used honey gold potatoes (which are amazing)
Simply boil till fork tender but not mushy. Put you broiler on high and prepare your baking pan with foil and spray/oil. Lay out the potatoes on the pan and with a fork, light press down until about a 1/3 inch thick. Sprinkle with salt and pepper at least. This time I added ranch seasoning (this one) but use whatever you like! Once you have smashed all of the potatoes, pop them in the oven. Keep a close eye on them since you are using the broiler. Mine turned golden brown and crispy after about 10 minutes. You could also just bake these at 375 but it will take longer.
I used 93/7 ground beef for HIS and 93/7 ground turkey for HERS. Make them with whatever you fancy 🙂
Create the serving size you want your burgers. Then divide that serving into two patties and flatten them. I used blue cheese crumbles and sliced Monterrey jack cheese this time. Place the amount of cheese you want on one of the patties and then place the other patty on top. Press down the edges to make sure the cheese is nice a secured in the middle. If a little oozes while cooking….mmmhmm yum, that is a-okay. Season with what you want. Cook the burgers however you like and there you go! That. Easy.
Like I said, this meal was a success and I could not be more happy with how it turned out. In fact, Sunday night I mashed the smashed tators again and topped them with cheese. OH!
