Well, hello there!

Well, hello there!
Matt & I in Costa Rica over Christmas...So beautiful there!
It's simple. Really. We're a young married couple that loves cooking together. We always try to eat healthy and, if it's simple and doesn't break the bank, we're into that, too! We hope you'll visit often and tell us what you think about what we're cooking! We'd love to hear from you. Drop us a note, a suggestion or a recipe!

Don't ask me how Hollywood relates to the dinner we made last night. Trust me, there was nothing glamorous (or expensive) about it! However, I grew up calling burgers that had lots veggies on them "Hollywood" burgers. Who knows!
So, last night we had Hollywood-style Turkey burgers with Baked Zucchini Fries.
Mmmmmmmm...So tasty. Matt did the honor of making the burgers on our trusty George Foreman Grill. That thing is amazing. I'm not sure why we don't use it more. It cooks so evenly, we're amazed every time!
Want to know how to make the meal? Ya, I thought so! :-)

Hollywood Turkey Burgers & Baked Zucchini Fries

1 lb. 93/7 Lean ground turkey
1/4 Cup shredded mozzarella cheese (because the meat is so lean it needs something to hold it together)
1/4 Cup Worcestershire (I'm sure I butchered that spelling)
1 Tsp. Kroger chicken grill seasoning (you knew we'd use that, didn't you?!)
Cooking Spray, to coat baking sheet and grill
2 Fresh zucchini, quartered and sliced lengthwise into "fries"
1 1/2 Tbs. plain bread crumbs
Dash of salt & pepper
Dash of garlic powder
3 Large slices red onion, separated into rings
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 Slices provolone cheese
4 Leaves romaine lettuce
1/2 avocado, sliced
Red onion (use the rings from one of the slices listed above)
2 Roma tomatoes, sliced

Pre-heat the grill to high, and oven to 350*
Place zucchini, 2 parts of the red onion, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder & olive oil into a mixing bowl. Stir and place onto a greased baking sheet. I almost always line mine with tin foil to avoid a mess! Bake @ 350* for about 20 minutes. Then broil @ 500* until they start to sizzle.

Place ground turkey, Worcestershire, grill seasoning & mozzarella into a mixing bowl. Mix together and form 2-3 large burger patties. Place onto grill and cook until completely done throughout...probably about 10-15 minutes.

Place two leaves of lettuce onto a plate. Place the burger patty on top and top the patty with a slice of provolone. Place the rest of the toppings (all those yummy veggies) on top. You can eat the burger wrapped in the lettuce, or you can just use a fork & knife to cut it like a salad, that's what I did!
We served the zucchini fries in ramekins...SO CUTE!
Sure, you're dirtying two more dishes but, when the sink is full of them and you're just going to have to load it after dinner anyway, what's two itty-bitty ramekins?
I'm all about presentation. I promise, one of these days, we'll start taking pictures of the meals before we go crazy over them...one day.

I love Hollywood.
