The following segment aired on O2 Media’s The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television. Joining the show was O2 Media’s very own chef, Jeremy Hanlon to discuss the Morningstar Farms Griller.
O2 Media, The Balancing Act: Grilling season is upon us, and for many of us that means red meat. Specifically, hamburgers are a popular choice when it comes to grilling. Nowadays, though, many of us are looking for ways to cut back on our red-meat consumption. Here to help us still satisfy that craving for the hot-of-the-grill taste and feel without the red-meat guilt is O2 Media’s very own chef, Jeremy Hanlon.
Hanlon: There is something very special about the summertime that gets everyone all fired up about the gill. I have a creative alternative that is going to turn you around.
O2 Media, The Balancing Act: What do you have for us?
Hanlon: I have Grillers Original. It is from Morningstar Farms, and can be found in all grocery stores. The great part about it is you go to the store, pick them up, pick up your produce, and whatever else you’re getting for that backyard barbecue or even an evening with the family. Then you’re at home—and it’s ready to go on the grill.
O2 Media, The Balancing Act: I really want to trust you, but I have to trust my taste buds on this one.
Hanlon: So let’s get into the recipe here. Grab some olive oil and a little bit of minced garlic and then drizzle it over zucchini, the yellow and red peppers, and fresh eggplant. Then add a little bit of sea salt on top with some cracked pepper to add a little but more flavor to our fresh veggies.
The great part about this is that the whole meal is going right on the grill.
O2 Media, The Balancing Act: That is so easy and quick to make.
Hanlon: Yes, and there’s no running in and out of the kitchen or anything or any mess on the stove.
O2 Media, The Balancing Act: They smell great. I’m ready to try.
Hanlon: Okay, well, let’s grab the plate there and one of the most important parts about the burger is that you have to toast the bun. We’re going to bring the griller right on top and if you follow me over to the table, what I did was took the vegetables, let them cool, chopped them up, then put them all together. And to finish it off, just a hint of balsamic glaze. It pulls it all together. In addition to great taste, there grillers originals are 58% less fat than a comparable beef patty and cholesterol-free. So, everybody’s a winner with this one.
O2 Media, The Balancing Act: Where can we buy these tasty burgers?
Hanlon: You could pick these up at the grocery store, again, when you’re shopping for everything else—one-stop shop. Come home, impress your friends, and in your case, some of the toughest critics around.
