Tonight I made the best dinner I’ve had since starting IP!
First, I made a 6 oz turkey burger using Jenny-O 93/7 ground turkey, using some new McCormick seasoning called Bacon Molasses. This is really good, and you only need 1 tsp of it for a whole pound of meat. Good smoky bacon flavor!
Then I used two big portabella mushroom caps (total 5 oz for both) and laid them fuzzy side up on a baking sheet. Drizzled them with olive oil, then sprinkled on granulated garlic and the tiniest amount of sea salt. I baked them for about 10 min at 350 degrees until they were “wilted” and the moisture had shrunk them down.
Then I built my burger with one mushroom base, a slice of Go Veggie! vegan cheese, a slice of onion, low carb ketchup, mustard, meat pattie, then about ½ tsp fat free mayo on the meat, a few dill pickle slices, and the top “bun”
Yes, you need to eat it with a knife and fork, but it was AWESOME! So yummy. I will definitely do this again.

You can cut 5g out of the fat/40 calories, if you don’t put the oil on the mushrooms. On the IP diet, it’s needed.
