Valentine's Dinner Idea

If your plans for Valentine's day dinner are to stay at home and cook, there are always fun ways to make your meal festive. A little heart shape can go a long way.

This dinner is so simple that you could even get the kids to help. (Since we all know they're the reason we can't go out for a romantic dinner, may as well make them useful).

You need:

  • potatoes (I used a sweet potato and yellow potatoes)
  • small heart shaped cookie cutter
  • 1 lb ground meat (I used turkey)
  • spices (salt, pepper, onion powder, paprika, parsley)
  • an egg
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • olive oil

(Serves 4)

Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees.

Slice the potatoes horizontally about 1/2 an inch thick.

Use your small heart shaped cookie cutter and cut shapes out of the middle of the potatoes. (Kids can help with this part).

Once all of the potatoes have been cut out, put them into a bowl and drizzle them with olive oil and add spices. (I used salt, paprika and onion powder).

Put the potatoes onto a baking sheet and into the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes flipping half way through.

Next, start your burgers.

Place the meat, 1 egg, 1/2 cup of almond flour and spices into a bowl and mix it all together with your hands.

Shape your patties into hearts and put them onto a lined baking sheet. Put them into the oven with the potatoes that are already baking. Flip the burgers after 10 minutes and continue to bake for an additional 15-20 minutes.

Everything should finish up at roughly the same time (the potatoes should have gone in approximately 15 minutes before the patties).

Place 2 lettuce leaves in a heart shape onto your plate, top with the burger patty and add some potatoes to the side.

Add a tomato slice or any other toppings you like (I was doing Whole30 so this burger just had the tomato slice for me).

You could even add cheese if you are not dairy-free. (Delicious for Keto).

And there you have a healthy, festive dinnepart!
