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!

    Shredded Beef Sandwich with Crispy Onion Strings

    Lets talk about Pinterest trends today. When I scroll down my Pinterest feed there seems to always be some of the same projects and recipes that pop up again and again. Lately it seems that all projects must include pallets and/or chalk board paint.

    Some of the food trends I have resisted (I still have yet to try quinoa and mug cakes) but Mississippi roast is one that I have tried and loved. I am not usually a beef lover, but this roast is sooo gooood! I have adapted the original recipe a bit to suit my taste though. I do not add butter to my roast as I have found it unnecessary and a little too greasy. I instead add some of the juice from the pepperoncini peppers for moisture, and I use sliced peppers rather than whole.

     I like the roast over potatoes, but I much more enjoy it between a bun, smothered in melted cheese and topped with crispy onion strings. Oh yea baby. Come to mama.

    Although this sandwich seems like a lot of steps, it’s actually very simple. The beef is assembled in minutes and cooks all day in the slow cooker. The onions fry quickly because they are sliced so thinly. Make sure to turn your broiler on while cooking the onions so it will be nice and hot to toast your buns and melt the cheese.

    Shredded Beef Sandwich with Crispy Onion Strings

    Ingredients

    • 1 chuck roast (4-5 lbs)
    • 1/2 jar sliced pepperoncini peppers
    • 1 packet ranch dressing mix
    • 1 packet au jus
      Crispy Onions
    • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 cup buttermilk
    • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
    • seasoning salt
    • 1 quart canola oil
      Sandwich Ingredients
    • Hamburger buns
    • Swiss or  provolone cheese, sliced
    • Mississippi roast
    • Crispy onions

    Instructions

  • Put roast in crock pot.  Sprinkle ranch mix and gravy mix on top.  Add juice from half of the jar of peppers and place the peppers top of the meat.  Cook on low 8-10 hours. Shred with forks. Slice onion very thin. Place in a baking dish and cover with buttermilk and soak for at least an hour. Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
  • Heat oil to 375 degrees. Grab a handful of onions, throw into the flour mixture, tap to shake off excess, and plunge into hot oil. Fry for a few minutes and remove as soon as golden brown. Place onto paper towels to drain, and immediately sprinkle with seasoning salt.
  • To assemble sandwich: Preheat broiler to high. Place a slice of cheese on each side of bun. Place under broiler, and watch closely until cheese is bubbly. Layer shredded beef and onion strings on bottom half of bun, add more sliced peppers if desired. Devour!!
