Orgasmic Burger Recipe!

After a long enduring day of recipe development at its best (11 baguette recipes for product packaging), I decided to treat myself to an amazing and ORGASMIC dinner. After all, it has been a long day and I deserve to eat well (and clean). And I may even be able to use this recipe for work purposes; a request for 2-3 new recipes for each meat (beef, pork, chicken, turkey,lamb, duck,veal) listed in a future publication came in today...its nice to be needed!

At an estimated 188 calories, 18 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber and 6.5 grams of's pretty lean and clean

He goes...

Pork Burgers with Sage and Peach Aioli
 2 cloves garlic, divided
¼ cup light mayonnaise

1 ripe peach, cut into 6, divided (can use canned in light syrup)
1/2 small onion, rough chopped
1/3 cup old- fashioned oats
9 large sage leaves
¾ lb. lean ground pork or cubed pork tenderloin
Salt and pepper for seasoning
Lettuce, tomatoes, red onions

First of all, here is an enticing image of the end product...hungry yet?

Place 1 garlic clove in a food processor and pulse until minced; add 3 peach slices and mayo. Puree until smooth and transfer to a small bowl. Dont worry about cleaning out or scraping the edges the bowl of the food processor; using the sweet gooey aioli that is left will add moisture to the burgers.
Add remaining garlic, onion, oats and sage to bowl; process until fine.Add pork and remaining peach slices; season with salt and pepper and pulse until minced.
Divide mixture into 4 patties and grill for about 5 minutes of each side. Internal temperature must reach 160F!

Build it: stack tomatoes over lettuce greens, then the burger, the aioli, more tomatoes and red onion. Add whatever fun garnishes you have, such as home grown scallions. You can serve it on a whole wheat bun if you like, but some of us need to save calories in order to recover from the massive amounts of food eaten on their recent trip to Cali.

Ok, so I managed to sneak in a slice of cheese...its Swiss cheese, so it is lower in calories, fat and sodium! It was either the cheese or the bun...I chose the cheese...always will!


  1. Oh yes, this DOES sound (and look) orgasmic!!

  2. I forgot to comment when Ben and I made these a month or so ago. They turned out mindbogglingly delicious and juicy. Bomb-ass burgers for sure! Ben said they were the best he'd ever made. Awesome recipes Jackie!
