Wedge Salad with Elegant Blue Cheese Dressing
I love these salads at steak houses because it's such simple flavour. You can 'cheat' a little with a good bottled bleu cheese dressing, fresh ground pepper, and the crumbled bleu cheese on top. I like mine with a large serving spoonful of fresh diced tomatos atop--the sweetness of the tomato goes well with the pungentness of the blue cheese.

Mushroom Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers
I've been using ground turkey instead of beef for quite awhile now. Even my meat-freak husband admits it's hard to tell the difference. Here in Ohio it's cheaper too- you can get a pound of frozen ground turkey at Aldi's for $1.25 and it's of good quality. I've been doing a recipe like this, but I add about three tbsp of horseradish (not the creamy horseradish) per Lb of turkey and a splash of worchestershire sauce.

Totally Tangy Baked French Fries
I used red potatos sliced into steak-fries with the skins left on (use an onion-blossom slicer for super-quick steak fries) decreased the oil until just barely enough to get to seasoning to stick, and baked on stoneware on 450-degrees for 15 minutes each side. Many reviewers had problems with the cook time listed not giving them the texture they wanted. I found my steak-fries were crispy on the outside, soft in the center at 450 and 15 min each side. I served with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkling of cilantro.
