Today was a steady busy day at work, not crazy busy, so it was a great way to start the week!  I decided to make an egg white sammie for breakfast.  I haven’t gotten liquid egg whites in the longest time, because they were $3.99 for a small carton!  My local Target recently added onto their grocery department, and while it isn’t a full fledged Super Target, their egg whites were only $2.39!  Score!  Breakfast was 1/2 cup egg whites, 1.5 ounce seven grain bread, 1/2 ounce cheddar cheese, shredded zucchini, 1 piece of cooked bacon and 1/2 Fuji apple.


For lunch I decided to make zucchini boats.  One zucchini that I nuked in the microwave, then I browned 3 ounces of ground sirloin and mixed it with my homemade pasta sauce, and added some crushed red pepper for an extra kick.  I added mozzarella cheese and then heated up some Yaki-Soba noodles on the side – love that 5.5 ounces of this pasta is only 150 calories!


So I saw on that they made Salisbury Steak Burgers with a “Belmont” sauce.  I thought the sauce reminded me of a sauce that Tony gets at a local bar that has the best burgers – a sherry mushroom sauce.  Sadly, the sauce didn’t turn out for me, it just tasted like ketchup, but I loved how flavorful the burger was!  I made some changes, as we don’t like onions or raw peppers in dishes!

Salisbury Steak Burger

  • 2 pounds ground sirloin
  • chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Tabasco 😀
  • ground pepper

This made six burgers – mine weighed in at 5 ounces.  I had 1 ounce of pepper jack cheese on mine, with LOTS of mustard, and then cucumbers with a tablespoon of Annie’s goddess dressing on the side.  These were some juicy burgers!




When I got home, I picked up the mail and totally forgot about these coupons that K from K’s Good Eats was going to give me! 😀


Lucky me!!!  Thanks K!
