Nugget Markets “Fresh to Market” Aug 6, 2008

In this issue

Meatless Wonder

Amys Veggie Burger

We love Amy’s Bistro Burgers (featured in our Vegetarian Burger recipe), because they achieve the near impossible — a veggie burger that tastes great but is also gluten-free and contains no dairy. Amy’s veggie burger is made with organic brown rice, pinto beans, organic vegetables, mushrooms and a touch of barbecue sauce — you’ll swear they taste fresh from the grill!

A Pocket Full of Delicious

Just Natural Pita Bread

Planning to try out our Lamb Burger recipe? Just Natural Pita Pocket Bread makes a great bun-stand-in — we also like them for sandwiches, because they are organic and contain no cholesterol, saturated fats or preservatives.

Barbecue, No Bugs

Citronella Candles

Keep the creepy-crawly-flying-thingies away and enjoy your barbecued burger in peace. All it takes is a couple of Tag Citronella Candles. They come in a variety of sizes, including tealights and small and large pillars, and they are great for telling bugs to, er, bug off.

Simple, Safe Sunscreen

Alba Sunscreen

One sunscreen fits all? We don’t think so. Luckily, Alba understands this and makes a wide variety of sunscreens to fit all lifestyles and sun-exposure levels. Alba’s sunscreens not only protect you from those harmful rays, but they nourish your skin and help prevent premature aging.

Hamburger Nation

Featured Recipes: The Best Burgers

The world of tasty burgers isn’t limited to beef on a bun. To suit a wide range of taste buds, Nugget Markets’ chefs have created six delicious new burgers — you may never go back to a plain patty again!

Cowpoke Turkey Burger

Turkey Burger

Recipe by: Rachael Levine

Ground turkey and chicken are great alternatives to the traditional all-beef burger. Flavors of chili powder, cumin and dried oregano in the patty mixture add a little Tex-Mex flair to the burger. Add crispy golden onion rings, Gratfon Smoked Cheddar and Stubbs Smokey Mesquite Bar-B-Cue Sauce and you’ll find yourself singing ol' cowboy songs.

Very Veggie Burger

Vegetarians deserve great burgers too!

Sesame Soy Salmon Burger

Salmon Burger

Recipe by: Jeff Clark

Step outside the burger box and experience seafood like you never have. Hearty, flavorful salmon heightened with a touch of soy and sesame seeds.

Lamb Burger

Lamb Burger

Recipe by: Jeff Clark

Would you like to add a little Mediterranean flair to your next cookout? You’ll impress even the most jaded grill master with these rich lamb burgers, with just a hint of mint and Dijon mustard.

Bison Sliders with Easy Compote of Caramelized Onion & Smokey Roasted Salsa

Bison Sliders

Recipe by: Rachael Levine

Bison is leaner than beef, but higher in omega-3 fatty acids due to it being 100% grass-fed. Our bison meat is all-natural - free of antibiotics and growth hormones! Coined as America's "original red meat" bison is very "beefy" in flavor and not "gamey" as many would imagine. It is available in our Meat Department's frozen section. For further information about bison and the North American Bison Cooperative, please visit

All-American Burger

All American Burger

Recipe by: Jeff Clark

You’ve had them while camping; you’ve had them on the 4th of July; you had them at your last summer block party. It’s the All-American burger. The classics stay with us for a reason — because they’re good!

Heath Notes with Dr. LizDr Liz

Corn–a-copia Summer

Corn-on-the-cob holds high status as a standard at summer barbecues and picnics. This ancient grain can be traced back more than 6,000 years in Mexico, and it is loaded with refueling nutrients that are crucial for active folks. One cup of cooked corn (about 1 1⁄2 ears) packs 40 grams of carbohydrates, a vital fuel for muscles, and 4 grams of mostly insoluble fiber, which promotes healthy intestinal tract function. Corn also supplies a wealth of B-vitamins such as folate for heart health and thiamin for efficient carb-burning during exercise. The yellow color of corn comes from a cancer-fighting compound call beta-cryptoxanthin, which can help lower your risk of several cancers when consumed in corn and other sources, such as pumpkin.

Select ears of corn with fresh-looking husks and plump kernels on the inside. Soak ears of corn for a few minutes in water (keeping the husks on) and grill on medium-low heat, turning every few minutes until tender (about 10-12 minutes). Remove husks and enjoy with freshly ground salt and pepper.
