Roasted Pear and Feta Burger. Low Carb Bariatric Recipe

Yep. I put cinnamon in a turkey burger. Mr W is super proud that he could “detect” what the secret ingredient was. It makes this burger something really special. 

Not to mention the roasted pear! This burger has something slightly sweet to it, but still burger-y. I put caramelized onions and feta cheese on top. A really fast meal that seems gourmet- if I had to pick a style of cook I want to be…that would be it! And also, healthy & affordable. So I would pick a quick, affordable, healthy gourmet cook. Too much?…

  2. Hi,

    Today I made egg quiches in a 12 count muffin pan.

    6 eggs beaten
    2 T of purple onions chopped
    Cilantro – Fresh cut up – about 3 T
    2 Habanero String Cheese Sticks

    Spray the muffin pan with Pam.
    Beat eggs, onions, and cilantro together. Fill muffin cups half full. Peel the cheese in strings. One stick does 6 muffin tins. Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes till done.

    Great to have in the fridge for a quick protein snack. Heat in microwave for 10 seconds.
