We first posted this burger back in 2014. Apparently Spring was not anywhere to be seen in 2014 either…..after last nights snow…yes, I said snow and hopefully this is the last of it. Winter has stuck around wayyyy too long this year.
Bacon Apple Chicken Burger was originally called Apple Bacon Chicken Burger, but I discovered it’s a no no to use the same post title twice??
Making this burger again was not a no no, it was a great idea!
I said it a million…slight exaggeration …times, but I love ground chicken for a burger in place of turkey. For me, it has a better flavor, but if you are a lover of the turkey, please substitute it in this recipe.
As anyone who has used ground chicken (or turkey) knows it can be a little dry, but in the case of this burger, the add-ins make it nice and juicy. One other tip, I know its poultry and you do need to cook it through, but do not over cook it. If you do, no matter what you have added, it will be dry. A little bit of bacon, onion, sage and maple syrup add a nice flavor to the burger and a topping of Maple Dijon sauce and grilled granny smith apples and wow!!!
Since we revisted this recipe we decided to revisit the pictures too! Funny when you start a blog you think your pictures are really good, then later you look back and …YIKES!!! It’s an understatement to say we have improved.
So, brush off the snow, drag out the grill and try Bacon Apple Chicken Burger. If the snow won’t stop where you are, cook them inside until summer shows up!!
Does anything say fall more than pumpkin????? I think not…….But Pumpkin Ravioli says it best!!
Easy to make, using wonton wrappers instead of making pasta, filling from canned pumpkin, a touch of sage and walnuts ………yummm!
I have always loved pasta. I could eat it everyday. There is something heart warming and hearty about a pasta dish.
I had never really thought of pumpkin with pasta, but you use squash, so why not pumpkin?? No reason what so ever……here we go.
Just a can of pumpkin, not pie filling, just regular pumpkin. Mix it with some grated nutmeg, buy the nuts and grate it yourself, you will not be sorry. A touch of parmesan and walnuts. A quick mix and ooh la la.. filling.
Wonton wrappers are a perfect faux pasta. Just fill, fold, and boil. It takes just minutes.
I had a skillet with butter over a low heat waiting to bathe the ravioli in its lusciousness. Add in some walnut and sage, give it a toss.
Plate and serve with extra, walnut, sage and parmesan cheese. The perfect fast and easy fall pasta…..Pumpkin Ravioli!
