New Potato Salad

This can be served warm or cold. Earlier this week I saw a show that was making potato salad for a group get together. That made me want to make some. Trying to use healthier items and make it more easier to eat, guilt free. I took a family favorite recipe and updated it.

New Potato Salad

24oz Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes
3 hard boiled eggs
1/4 cup finely diced sweet onion
1/4 cup finely diced celery
2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1 Tablespoon brown mustard
2 Tablespoon Dukes Mayo
2 teaspoon super fine sugar ( I use caster sugar) Caster sugar is a superfine sugar found in the sugar section, usually on the top shelf in a small clear bag. manufactured by India tree.
Salt and Pepper.

Cut potatoes in bite size pieces, leave the skins on. Put in large pans and cover with water. bring to a boil. boil for about  10 to 15 minutes or until fork tender. drain and set aside.

put 3 raw eggs in the saucepan, cover with water. Bring to a boil, boil for 2 minutes and then turn the heat  off, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.  After that time drain water and rinse in cool water, peel eggs and cut into pieces. I cut egg in half and then each  half in half again and then in quarters. set aside.

Mix together next 6 ingredients  in a large serving bowl  stir well. Add the eggs and potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste

You can serve this warm or cold.

Black Bean Burgers

I have been trying to find other food to help trim my calories. Without going full vegetarian I wants to mix in the veggie meals during the week. Been trying different vegetarian burgers in the restaurants.  The best one I have found is a UNO. however a wonder waht the calorie counts is. Even with Vegetarian dish they can have a high calorie count.

While looking through a new cookbook, I saw a recipe for a Burger made with Black beans. Of course I did not have all the ingredients it called. So out came my thought process, how can I make a black bean burger with what is in my Cupboard.

Black Bean Burgers.

1 can Black beans
2 oz jalapeno  peppers
1/2 cup Panko Crumb
2 tablespoon Olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2  teaspoon Chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
dash salt
1 large egg white.

Drain and rinse black beans.  set aside 1/2 cup and mash  with fork the remaining.
Add the the next seven ingredients and mix with fork.
Beat egg white and add to the bean mixture.

divide into four patties and cook on medium high heat. 3 minutes per side.

Serve with guacamole, or top with MontereyJack cheese
