Summer Burger

Do you need a fresh supper idea?

Try this one. Grilled angus burger topped with cheese. Place it on a bed of lettuce and add a fresh tomato to the side.

Do not be afraid to add a few baked fries seasoned with garlic salt, onion powder, and basil.

Lastly, add a few slices of fresh watermelon.

It is a filling meal, but not as bad as a traditional hamburger and French fries.

Enjoy this lighter twist to a traditional summer meal.

Crab Bombs

Easy Seafood Recipe

Keeping It Real

Crab Bombs

This is a really easy recipe I made for my family last night. If you like seafood and crabs, then this is a must to try.

I included a link on the title to access the recipe from Skinnypoints.com.

I am “Keeping It Real” by sharing my not so pretty image of my first ever made Crab Bombs. My family liked them so I will be making these more often and hopefully the more I make them, the prettier they will look.

Ingredients:

1 lb. Crabmeat

1 Egg, beaten

1 cup Ritz Crackers, crushed

1 tsp. Yellow Mustard

2 tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice

2 tbsp. Fresh Parsley, chopped

1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning

1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce

Directions:

Place crabmeat in a mixing bowl, picking any stray shell fragments out. Add crushed crackers, Old Bay Seasoning & parsley to the crab.

In a separate bowl, combine egg, mustard, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. Whip with a whisk until smooth.

Pour egg mixture over the crabmeat and crackers and gently mix careful not to break up large lumps of crabmeat.

Mold into golfball sized balls and place on a cookie sheet.

Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Drizzle w/ melted butter and allow to cool.

________________________________________________________________________

This is what I paired my Crab Bombs with; shrimp, stuffed mushrooms, green beans, and grapes. It was a filling but light healthy meal.

Caprese Chicken, Fresh Green Beans, and Fresh Bruschetta

Are you looking for a healthy and delicious supper option?

Check out this meal.

Just for laughs, my Kiddo gave me an ”A” for presentation tonight.

What you do not know is I really do not like cooking main meals. They are burdensome to me and very boring. I love baking and place more emphasis on presentation with that, but I do not care what my main meals look like. I am just happy to have it all made for another night.

I used two different recipes tonight and will include their links to their recipes then click on the links for the full recipe.

Caprese Chicken

Bruschetta

I used a wheat French baguette for my bread to put the delicious bruschetta on. A side note, I added a little shredded Italian cheese to mine as my family loves this added feature to my bruschetta.

Fresh Green Beans

I also served my meal with fresh steamed green beans and sprinkled with a little garlic salt and dried parsley.

Enjoy your supper!
