Off Skillet Empire Two-fer: Easy Fajitas and Breakfast Burgers

Since I'm so inconsistent with posting, and I cook far moar often than I post, how about I bring you two delicious recipes today?

First up, the fajitas:

-2 bell peppers
-1 onion
-1.5 lbs top round or bottom round thin-cut steaks
-1 cup Dale's seasoning
-2 cloves garlic
-2 tsp cumin
-1 tsp cayenne pepper
-1 tbsp red pepper flakes
-1 tbsp olive oil
-1 cup salsa
-1 cup greek yogurt
-8 soft tortilla shells
-Tomato, diced

First, pour the Dale's seasoning in a bowl and mix with red pepper flakes. Cut the steaks into thin strips and soak in the marinade for 2 hours.

Heat a pan on medium-high heat and add the meat, then the cumin, then the cayenne pepper. Add salt and pepper as desired. Remove from heat and let rest.

Cut the peppers up into thin slices and cut in half again. Cut the onions into the same sized strips. Sautee in a pan with the olive oil and add the garlic. Cook until soft. GNDXoyT.0.jpg

Serve on tortillas (or lettuce for a low-carb version) with diced tomatoes. Mix the yogurt and salsa and top. Serve and enjoy!

Now, the burgers:

-1 lb ground beef, 80/20
-1 lb ground sausage
-1 tbsp garlic salt or 1-2 garlic cloves
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tbsp pepper
-1 egg (per burger), fried (5-6 total)
-Large sandwich buns
-Provolone cheese, sliced
-Tomato, sliced
-1 white onion, chopped into small strips
-Sweet potatoes (and toppings - I chose brown sugar and butter)

Wrap the sweet potatoes in foil and start on the grill on low heat. Cook for about 30 minutes.

Mix the beef and sausage together, and add in the garlic. Form into patties as pictured. Heat up the grill to 350°, put down some heavy-duty foil, and coat with olive oil. Cook until medium (or as desired).


Sautee the onions in a pan, and fry up the eggs (individually). Top the burgers with cheese, lettuce, tomato, the sauteed onions, and egg. Serve with sweet potatoes (and Guinness, since I'm attempting my clone of a burger I had at an Irish pub).
