Eat like a caveman!!

A dear friend of mine and her kiddos came over to hang out recently. They implemented the Paleo Diet with their family a while back and, when I knew they were staying for lunch, I thought I’d try my hand at some Paleo recipes!

A is for Apple and Brie Turkey Burgers

Apple & Brie is a classic pairing so I had to find a recipe that meshed the two together.

I also wanted a Bobby Flay recipe… I love his recipes but they usually require a lot of ingredients, so I can’t justify buying all of them for one dinner. I hate having random ingredients sitting in my pantry or spoiling in my fridge that I use for one recipe and then never use again. I spring for this kind of recipe from time to time, but this is not that time… Brie is enough of a “spring” compared to other cheeses anyhow!

Before you start… you can click here for a quick “how-to” on burgers in general. Not all of this applies as this is a turkey burger and not a beef burger but it’s still helpful… especially if you’re new to grilling like me.

This recipe is delicious and simple! (My favorite combination!)

A is for Apple-Maple Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sammies

Wow, that recipe title is a mouthful!

Before diving into the recipe let’s stop for a moment and talk about PREP. If you’re like me you often rush into a recipe without reading the whole thing. So, you start the first instruction on the list and then read on as you cook along. This is great until you realize you needed to have five other things done before starting to saute the first thing, and then something burns or overcooks while you try to catch up. At this point you either start over because you’ve burned something beyond being edible or you accept the mistakes and serve your recipe as is.

I speak from experience here.
