Low-Carb Bacon Onion Balsamic Turkey Burger

I am so excited to be partnering with Jennie-O to bring you this post for a healthy new year.  Jennie-O creates quality, affordable products and I hope you will join me in supporting the brands that help Blonde Girl Cravings operate!

It’s summertime, and that means burgers! If you are like me though, you are trying to watch what you eat and are giving this low-carb thing a try. Jenni-O Seasoned Turkey Burgers are perfect for a low-carb diet! Individually wrapped so you can grab as many as you need, and done cooking in just a few minutes, they are the perfect solution for a quick dinner or lunch.

I chose to go bun-less for this burger and serve on a bed of lettuce, but I know it would be delicious on a toasted sesame seed bun!

This recipe sounds complicated, but the ingredient list is small and everything comes together in just minutes.

A delicously flavorful mayo, topped with caramelized onions and bacon with balsamic makes for a burger nice enough for company, but simple enough for a weeknight. Happy eating!

    Happy National Sandwich Day! I love sandwiches, so it seems only fitting that there is a day devoted to them. These sandwiches are served open face, a “knife and fork sandwich” if you will. I like mine with lots of extra ranch dressing on the side because, givemeallthecondiments!

    I am not including measurements or amounts in the recipe because I think sandwiches should always be customizable to your preferences. Love tomatoes? Pile them high! Bacon makes your heart sing? The more the merrier!! Enjoy!

    Ham and Cheese Scones

    Hi. My name is Ashley and I am addicted to carbs. It’s a issue I have had my entire life. #cantstopwontstop!!  I love them any way I can get them.

    Scones have become a new love of mine. I have made lots of sweet versions but this is the first savory I have tried. I had leftover ham from Christmas to use up, and anything with cheddar is always a win in my book.

    There are two elements that make a perfect scone for me: Ice cold butter and heavy cream. I find a cream scone is always tender and never dry. The colder the butter, the more flaky your scone will be.

    I am going to use the forbidden word here- these scones are super moist. No better word to describe them. These scones would be perfect for any time of day; with eggs for breakfast, with a salad or soup for dinner or lunch. I had three in one day. No shame.

    Ham and Cheese Scones

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups flour
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup cold butter
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup shredded cheese, plus addition for topping (optional)
    • 1/2 cup finely diced ham
    • 1/2 cup finely diced yellow onion

    Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add the cheese, ham and onion, tossing to coat. Shred the cold butter with a box grater. Add to the flour mixture and toss gently. Place bowl in the freezer to keep cold. Mix together the cream and egg with a fork. Place in fridge to keep cold. Line a baking sheet with silicone mat or parchment paper. Add cream and egg mixture to the flour. Stir just until combined.
  • On a well floured surface, knead the scone dough just until combined. Press dough into a 1 1/2 inch thick circle. Cut into eight pieces with a sharp knife. Place on cookie sheet, if desired brush with additional cream and sprinkle scones with more shredded cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden around edges. Move to wire rack to cool.
