Grilled Turkey and Avocado Sandwich


Hey I just thieved this recipe from Examiner.com, Week 3: Saturday – Grilled Turkey and Avocado sandwich. I cannot wait to try it. Looks simple enough to me which is right up my alley lol.

Grille Turkey and Avocado Sandwich

Ingredients

Ciabatta bread

½ cup basil pesto

½ lb. turkey

8 slices swiss cheese

1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

2 roma tomatoes, sliced

2 avocados, sliced

8 slices bacon, cooked

Instructions

Spread each piece of ciabatta bread with the pesto. Layer on the ingredients between cheese. Cook on a Panini press or over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side. Toppings make 3 sandwiches worth.

It isn’t really gluten free but it is semi-healthy and seems like a change from the same old turkey sammies I usually make. I like to switch things up once in a while.

Fresh roasted green beans and Vidalia onions


Seriously this is such a simple recipe. There is no excuse not to eat healthy. I think you just have to be creative and put your noggin into it.

All I used was about a pound of fresh green beans and one whole Vidalia onion. Wash the beans first and snap the ends off. Then boil for approximately 10 minutes and drain. Cut the Vidalia onion up into medium slices and put in a baking dish with the green beans. I then drizzled olive oil on top (about 2 to 3 tbsp) and sprinkled some onion powder and pepper on top. Just move the beans and onion around so that they all get moist from the olive oil. That was it!! You can add salt and any extra spices that you wish.

Bake in the oven on the top rack at about 375 – 400 depending on your oven for about 20 minutes. I like mine with a little crisp at the edges.

Simple asparagus


This recipe is so simple and taste amazing that even my boyfriend who is an asparagus hater lol asks for this dish from time to time.

All you need is:

  • 1 lb of asparagus
  • 2 to 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp of feta cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Remember there is no exact science to some recipes so you can give or take on these ingredients based on your liking.

Lay asparagus in your pan and drizzle olive oil throughout. I live to move the asparagus around to get all the stalks moist. Then top the asparagus with the remaining ingredients.

Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for approximately 20 mins.

Honestly it’s so good I could eat the whole dish myself. If you don’t like feta cheese then just omit and it’ll taste just as good!

Loaded Bake Potato Salad


Another easypeasy recipe that I whipped together. i take ideas here and there from other recipes then tweak them to make them my own. This one is super easy and tasted amazing.

6 to 8 white potatos peeled, quartered and boiled for about 10 just before they get tender

1/4 cup of mayonnaise

1/2 lb of bacon cooked (extra crispy)

1/4 cup of diced scallions

1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

Salt and Pepper to taste if needed but I didn’t even have to use it because between the bacon and scallions there was so much flavor in there already.

Mix all the above ingredients together and serve
