Simple, easy and wholesome dinner options with Butterball Turkey Burgers

This post brought to you by Butterball Every Day. All opinions are 100% mine.

As most moms, I'm all for trying something new and easy to feed my crew and grilling out is one of our favorite things to do. It's particularly MY favorite way of making dinner simply because 1) I don't mess up my kitchen 2) its easy and 3) it's a crowd pleaser – so it's win-win all around. 

Because of new dietary restrictions in our household, I've had to come up with some creative new ways to make tasty, wholesome meals that fall right in line with the doctor's orders. You see, my husband has been diagnosed with cyclic vomitng syndrome otherwise known as CVS and over the course of the summer it's been a rough ride for all of us – especially him.  As it turns out, there's only a handful of foods that he can eat as to not aggravate his condition and wind up sick. White meats such as turkey, chicken and fish are at the top of the list as protein sources. 

Aside from being served on the Thanksgiving dinner table, turkey has never been huge in our house until I grilled it over charcoal briquets! I thought it would add an extra layer of flavor to have the yummy mesquite taste infused into each bite – and I was right! It totally transformed the taste and put the turkey burger on a whole new level.

So easy to prepare – these burgers come pre-formed and frozen, so all you have to do is put them on the grill and cook! 

After about 8-10 minutes grilling each side (or until each side was nicely browned and looked cooked) I took them off the grill and let them sit for a few minutes while I sliced up some fresh veggies to dress it up. I'm telling you – the secret is charcoal!! 

I served mine up with a side of roasted potatoes that I made in my new oil-less fryer – it's the best 100$ I ever spent!

Quick and Easy fried rice with Success Rice #SuccessRice @Success_Rice #ad

Jazzing up plain rice is one of my favorite easy side dishes to make with dinner. Unfortunately the truth is, I’m not very good at making rice the old fashioned way. I have a tendency to burn it and have it all stick to the bottom of the pot, while the rest of it is undercooked. It can be pretty frustrating – so I look for products to make my life easier, which is why I am a big fan of Success® Rice. 

It takes about 10 minutes to bring it from box to the table and here’s how I do it! First, I start a pot of water and bring it to a boil. I add the pre-filled bag to the bubbling water and set the timer for 10 minutes. It’s a BPA free bag that’s food safe and best of all mess-free – cleanup is a snap! There’s 4 different varieties of Success® Rice, regular white rice, brown rice and the new Jasmine and Basmati rice for more exotic dishes. No idea what to do? Check out these recipes for some inspiration!

While that is boiling away, I chop up some green onions, and sauté them in a pan with sesame oil. I just LOVE the nutty smell it gives off!

Once those are nice and soft, I move them to the side of the pan, and drop in a slightly scrambled egg…

Next, I used a can of mixed veggies.. You can use fresh or frozen ones, but for simplicity’s sake I used canned. Just be sure to drain and rinse them well.

Keep stirring in the pan and make sure none of it burns. Adjust the temperature as needed… By this point, your rice is probably ready to come out, so I drained and opened the bag into the veggies & egg. Mix it up well and add about 1/4 cup of soy sauce and stir.

A big family favorite of ours is grilling out in the backyard during the summer months. Steak and hotdogs are ok – but since we are trying to keep it healthier, we do a lot of chicken and grilled veggies. Plain old chicken breast can get boring after awhile, so to try something new and fun, I decided we would have Tyson Cornish Hens that I got from Walmart. I decided to make my favorite soy based soy based chicken marinade because there was a 2$ off coupon that came with the Cornish Hens if you purchased a 10oz bottle of Kikkoman soy sauce. So I both both!

This has always been one of my favorite marinades to use on chicken.. This was my mother’s go-to recipe for marinating chicken wings with – and I always loved it when she made them! So needless to say, I thought they would be perfect for my Cornish Hens.

I started with a large freezer bag in a bowl and began measuring and combining all the ingredients. First, the Kikkoman soy sauce, olive oil & spices. Mix well, and add your chicken & chill overnight for juicy, tasty grilled chicken.

Next I got my Cornish Hens ready for my bag of marinade. I didn’t want to just stick it in the bag as a whole hen because I wanted the meat to fully soak up marinade on all sides. I thought about cooking the chicken spatchcock style on the grill so it would cook evenly. Instead, I thought that cutting the chicken into halfs would better suit our needs. Everyone gets a half hen for dinner, and the leftover one goes to work with my husband as his lunch. Works out perfectly! I always make sure to prepare extra food at dinner for this very purpose.

The next day, I decided to use my charcoal grill because I knew it would add another level of flavor to it. I lit my charcoal and waited for it to be hot enough, and placed my chicken skin side down, and let it cook for about 8-10 minutes with the cover closed. When I opened it back up, I turned the chicken 1/4 to create cross grill marks and close the cover again for another 10 minutes. #Grill4Flavor

After a good 25 minutes of cook time, I flipped them over and let it cook for another 20 minutes. When they were done, I pulled them off the grill and let them sit while I got the other sides prepared. Pair it with your favorite grilled or roasted veggies and you have a crazy-good meal! This marinade also works great for chicken wings – follow the same marinade recipe and bake them in the oven for 45 min at 400F for some amazing appetizers! #CollectiveBias
