My husband is utterly ridiculous, and so are my burgers

Okay he really doesn’t have much to do with this blog post, but he is… utterly…. ridiculous.

Paul and I went shopping at sobeys to get him some milk, well I’ve been running low on protein lately so I passed by the fish section: haddock was on sale! Bingo! Walk by the meat section, blah blah everything is too expensive as usual, however, I used to make these ground turkey burgers all the time when i was in highschool, they were so yummy, I haven’t made them in a while so I went over to the chicken section, low and behold! Ground chicken was on sale, but the sign said “Sale, .99c” regular price is $5.49 so I thought “nahhh, that’s not .99 cents, that just must be .99 cents off. So I take one package, go through the checkout, IT WAS ACTUALLY ONLY .99 CENTS!!! My jaw dropped (because that’s how surprised I am at sales like that) and asked the cashier if it was right, she said yes so I paid and went right back and got 4 more packages! The expiry date is tomorrow, but that’s okay! Into the freezer they go! ahhhhhhh yeahhhh!!!!

Before this, my poor husband was complaining of a headache, and he was hungry, and tired, there hasn’t been much food in the fridge lately so I decided I would make him something more decadent in the kitchen this evening. I kept out 2 packages of ground chicken, and celery, red onion, garlic and started making another creation (which is my normal cooking):

Chicken spice burgers

2 lbs of ground chicken

1/2 cup of finely chopped up celery

1/3 cup of finely chopped up red onion

5 cloves of garlic finely chopped up

1 large free range egg

1/4 tsp of salt

1 tsp of Mrs. Dash

1 tsp of ground cloves (estimate)

1 tsp of nutmeg (estimate)

2 TBSP of gluten free all purpose flour

  • Note that I don’t measure anything when I cook so this recipe is an estimate!

Preheat oven to 300F.

Blend everything together, it should get nice and sticky so it will hold well! Dump some into a frying pan and fry it up evenly on both sides then stick ’em in the oven to finish cooking! I use grapeseed oil when it comes to cooking oil, in case you were wondering.

While the burgers were cooking, Paul kept coming around smelling them and staring and drooling at them. I had to shoo him away because he was becoming a pest in the kitchen.

End result, they were sooooo delicious, Paul and i agreed that if we didn’t control ourselves we could probably finish off the whole batch (which made about 14-15 small burgers).

Dessert we had zucchini gluten free muffins with strawberry sauce on top! Yummm!!
