what’s for dinner: double-double & green fries #healthified


I stumbled upon this amazing website over the weekend. It mostly made me miss Inn-n-Out burgers, animal style. After I wiped a tear from my eye and the drool from my chin I decided to take matters into my own hands and make a Double. Double. Animal. Style. Healthified. I’m still getting used to taking pictures of all my adventures, so bear with me as this one doesn’t have any how-to photos.

I threw two turkey burgers on the grill, along with some chopped onion on top of foil and garlic asparagus (green fries).

The trick is putting the cheese on the burger right after you’ve flipped it and the other side is cooking. I added a lil BBQ sauce to give it a kick and place it on a warm, toasted thin whole wheat and viola! my very own double-double animal-style. AND my favorite part of a burger– grilled onions!!!!

My healthified animal style double-double:

  • 1 thin whole wheat bun
  • 2 turkey burger patties
  • 2 slices of cheese, your choice
  • onions, grilled (diced or chopped, your liking. just make sure you dice/chop the same size so they grill evenly)
  • add any other condiments you choose: mustard, ketchup, lettuce, tomatoes….

Prep time: 5 minutes:

Cook time: 10ish minutes

Servings: 1

Directions: Place burger, onions and asparagus on grill; place the bun on the warmer. After you flip the burger put cheese on top and then sprinkles onions on top of melted cheese.

Green Fries:

  • olive oil (substitute: olive oil Pam)
  • garlic powder (substitute: garlic salt, fresh garlic)
  • optional: fresh parmesan (substitute Kraft parmesan)

Prep time: 2 minutes

Cook time: 10-15 minutes

Serving: as many as you like

Directions: Don’t be shy with the olive oil! Drizzle it over the asparagus. Mix and make sure no part of the asparagus is dry. Sprinkle with garlic powder– or in my case because I love garlic I absolutely drown them in garlic powder (you can also use garlic salt but sometimes I think this is too salty). Place the asparagus in tin foil, don’t cover the asparagus, this just makes clean up easier and also it makes it harder to burn your veggies. Grill for about 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can bake at about 400 degrees for 10ish minutes, or until you get them as you like– sometimes I like mine a lil more crispy so I leave them in for 15 minutes. After you take them off the grill grate some fresh parmesan.
