Good-for-You Sunday Night Burger n’ Fries

I looove comfort food on Sundays. There’s just something about a cheesy slice of pizza, big bowl of ice cream or juicy cheeseburger (maybe all three. just kidding. maybe) to close out the weekend. I’m guilty of letting my healthy eating take a backseat on the weekends, and the truth is, it REALLY adds up. If you think about it, taking “off” Friday-Sunday from your otherwise healthy lifestyle means at least 10-12 days a month! LIGHTBULB -“hmmm maybe that’s why I’m not seeing results…”

So in an effort to satisfy my cravings without giving in whole-heartedly, I’m on a quest to make the healthiest versions of foods I crave – like this Feta Arugula Turkey Burger and Sweet Potato Fries recipe! This dinner is sooo good and full of good-for-you ingredients. Who’s whipping this up for Sunday night dinner, tonight? (It’s okay to have a glass of wine too since, y’know, it’s healthy.)

Feta Arugula Turkey Burgers

  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1 handful arugula, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2c feta cheese
  • 1/2c chopped red onion
  • 2 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • Seasonings (to your liking): parsley, sea salt, pepper

Add turkey, chopped arugula, feta cheese, red onion, Dijon mustard and garlic into a medium-sized bowl. Crack the egg into the bowl and mix together. Season with parsley, sea salt and pepper to your liking. Form into 5 patties and cook over stovetop or grill until browned on each side.

Combine olive oil and seasoning in a medium-sized bowl. Wash the sweet potato; you can either peel it or leave the skin on. Cut into 1/4 in. strips and toss into the seasoning mixture. Place the sweet potato fries on a cooking sheet and bake for 25-35 minutes at 450 degrees.
