I’ve guess you could say I’ve been “under the weather” for a few days, so I haven’t been cooking like I normally do . Last night I wanted to cook something healthy and EASY ~ but still wanted it to have a “comfort food” taste. So I cooked our favorite shrimp burgers, sauteing the shrimp and adding mushrooms.
Don’t get me wrong, I REALLY like fried shrimp burgers. But these are my all time favorite because these shrimp are cooked with garlic and mushrooms, and topped with provolone cheese. I bought my shrimp already peeled and deveined, so it was super simple and quick.
I took some of the shrimp mixture,placed it on the bottom part of the bun, and topped it with a slice provolone cheese. Then I placed the bun in my toaster oven and toasted it just until the cheese melted and the bun was heated, garnished with some lettuce, tomato & red onion slices and that was it ~ a healthy dinner was on in less than 20 minutes! Yay!
