Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

What's for dinner 11/13/10: Pizza Burgers, Italian Mozzarella Salad and Homemade French Fries

Tonight's Feingold dinner was really yummy...pizza burgers, italian mozzarella salad & homemade french fries...YUMMY

Pizza Burgers
Serves 4

4 slices of bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
8 oz mushrooms, steamed and sliced
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 tsp dried oregano
pepper to taste
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
4 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced
4 hamburger buns

Preheat grill to high.

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.

Drain grease from pan, leaving a little to sauté the mushrooms(I chopped my mushrooms up small) . Reduce heat to medium, add mushrooms and sauté until they begin to soften, about 4 minutes.

Add tomato sauce, oregano, and salt and pepper and cook, stirring continuously, 1 minute more. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and allow to cool.

When mushroom mixture is cool enough to handle, add meat and mix, using your hands, just until combined (do not over mix). Form into patties (one per serving).

Grill burgers, turning once, 5-6 minutes per side. Make sure meat is thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in the center. During the last minute of grilling, top each burger with a slice of cheese. 
Italian Mozzarella Salad
Serves 4

1/2 head of romaine lettuce, washed and torn
1 tomato, cored and sliced
2.25 oz can of sliced olives, drained
4 oz fresh mozzarella, cubed
1/2 red onion, sliced
1/4 cup prepared italian dressing
Place salad ingredients in a medium bowl, toss with enough dressing to coat and serve.

VERDICT:  very good, even my mushroom hating child loved the burger (I didn't tell him there was mushrooms in it).  It was moist, juicy and there was no one asking "where's the beef" LOL the salad was a nice change also from traditional salad with the olives and mozzarella.
