#DinnerReview Turkey Burgers, Rice & Guacamole

Tonight we tried something totally different for dinner. We’ve been in a bit of a food slump, as we all get into from time to time. I have to admit, I don’t like trying new food. The rest of my family does though – my husband and three kids all like trying and testing out new recipes. Me, I’m not very food adventurous.  What about you, do you like trying new food?

 
We’re having an extra busy week so tonight’s dinner needed to be quick, and of course – delicious. On the menu – Jennie-O All Natural turkey burgers, Wholly Guacamole and garden rice. We originally wanted to try the Jennie-O JalapeƱo burgers, but the store was out of them. 

 

Jennie-O Turkey Burgers & Wholly Guacamole

 

I’ve never had an avocado and I only recently tried guacamole in the last few months. My local supermarket had a sample table of Wholly Guacamole and whole wheat crackers, and my daughter and I stopped to try some. It was pretty good and since we both liked it, we ended up buying some while we were shopping. Wholly Guacamole uses real avocados and their products don’t contain any preservatives, artificial flavoring or fillers.

This time, while shopping for dinner, I bought an extra box of guacamole so we could munch on something while the burgers and rice were cooking. We had it with Lundberg Black Cracked Pepper Organic Chips. The crunchiness of the chips and the smoothness of the guacamole went really well together!

We cooked the turkey burgers on the stove top, but they would have been just as good on the grill. The directions said to add some oil and we added a little but the burgers were juicy and we had to drain some of the liquid out. We spread the guacamole on the rolls, instead of the ketchup, mustard or mayonnaise we would normally use. There was a recipe on the box of turkey burgers that we want to try next time, plus there are other recipes on their site {like this one} that caught our interest.

 

We made garden vegetable rice as a side dish and added some romaine lettuce to the burger. We might normally make onions or add cheese, but we wanted to be able to taste the turkey burgers and guacamole since it was our first time having them as a meal.

The final verdict was two thumbs up from my entire clan! This is not something we would have normally made and we’re glad we did because it’s a meal we will enjoy again. It was delicious and easy to prepare. Great for when you need to make dinner in a hurry. I’ve been watching my calories over the last few months, trying to shed the more-than-a-few pounds I gained after we moved to Florida from NYC. The top chart is for the turkey burgers, the other one is for the guacamole.
