Chicken Burgers and the Bridge Run

Tonight was our last night before our trip.  We're headed down to historic Charleston, South Carolina for the Cooper River Bridge Run tomorrow.  We are both taking personal days in order to go down early and enjoy some time to ourselves before our run.  A little shopping, a little walking downtown historic Charleston, and a dinner of pasta at an Italian restaurant downtown.  (gotta have that pre-race fuel)

So with packing, and cleaning, and all the other chores that go on in our lives at McCabe Castle, I opted to try a Sam's Club special.  I saw these last week when we were loading up on our staples and thought they would be great for nights such as these.

They are Carmelized Onion & Swiss Chicken burgers by Old World Kitchen.  There are eight patties in the container - two sealed packs of four patties each.

The patties must be completely thawed before use.  Then they can be heated in any number of ways - pan fried, broiled in the oven, toaster oven, George Foreman grill, or as I did tonight - I threw them on the gas grill out side for a few mintutes on each side.

Thawed out and ready to go.
It doesn't take long on each side as they are fully cooked already.

Smellivison would be great. Mmmm....

Loaded up with a whole wheat light bun, reduced-fat pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato and some slices of avocado.  Serve up with a side of Kellogg's Special K Cracker chips (and a couple tater tots I stole from my daughter's plate!)

The patties are 180 calories each and great for those in a hurry meals. 

Enjoy!  I did!  Wish me luck in the Bridge Run.  There will only be 43,000 of us running.... and I'm excited for this 10k - my first.  I hope to get some pics while running for a blog post.  The goal is to complete the 6.2 miles without the aid of EMS!!


  1. I'm not huge into turkey burgers, but that looks delicious. It may be the caramelized onions. Never going to see me turning them down.

    Good luck in the run to you and your wife! Looking forward to the pictures.

  2. That picture of the bridge is really something! Wow!

    I love the chicken burgers. I will have to try and come up with a recipe for them. I have always been a bigger fan of turkey and chicken burgers to be quite honest.

  3. This is perfect on busy weeknights!
    Enjoy your trip, Richard! Good luck on the run!
