Today I bring you a list of burgers (which wasn’t obvious at all from the title). Would you expect anything less of me than complete and total sabotage of your new year’s diet efforts?? (It’s basically already February, which means you’ve basically forgotten your New Year’s Resolutions….basically).
Anyways burgers are something we are slightly (read: obsessively) fans of in this household….according to my husband it should be acceptable to have them for every meal….every single day. To which I say “If you’re going to die young, I guess death by burgers is the way to go”. Nonetheless, all this burger eating has led us to discover some delicious, unique and incredible burger combinations. Like the one pictured above…
Cook your burger (I always use lean ground turkey…gotta be healthy somehow, right??). Top with cheddar cheese (use a nice sharp, aged cheddar), then slices of crispy bacon (again, being “healthy” and using turkey bacon) and thin apple slices.
Top with a drizzle of peanut butter (I used crunchy and I heated it for about 15 seconds in the microwave to make it more of a liquid consistency).
If peanut butter and apples on a burger isn’t quite your thing (which is totally acceptable), check out one of our other combos below and let me know in the comments if you have any favorites!

P.S. This was my attempt at a Superbowl food post. I always get so excited for the Superbowl….in which I am referring to the food….and the drinks……and the commercials…oh and supposedly at some point some guys run around with a ball and then throw it at each other, right??!
