This is for those times when your burger reminds you of . . . a catalog bound for the recycling bin.
Erin: This is the time of year when my meal plan can safely be described as something akin to Hunter/Gather. “Forage anything edible from the fridge” seems a perfectly reasonable solution to the daily dinner question once I have taken my parenting poolside. So you can imagine my joy when my sister made these incredible turkey burgers for us at the beach. Not only did I get a delicious meal, but I now have a new summer meal plan: Grill tons of these turkey burgers. Repeat. ALL. SUMMER. LONG.
Ellen: Not to sound skeptical, but turkey burgers can be hard to do. They can get dried out.
Erin: Exactly! A lot of turkey burgers remind me of a Pottery Barn catalog . . .
Ellen: Why so specific? Why Pottery Barn over say, Ann Taylor?
Erin: I guess it’s the texture.
Ellen: Like a sisal rug?
Erin: Yeah! And also kinda like you’re supposed to like Pottery Barn, but it really isn’t all that. You know, like turkey burgers are supposed to be all sexy because they are healthy for you, but they taste like doormats. But not my sister’s, they definitely fall into the sexy category.
Ellen: On that note, behold Karen’s sexy, non-periodical tasting, amazing turkey burgers.
These are so delicious they are worth every second dicing and mincing. They will also help you fit into the bathing suits you bought at the beginning of the season by the end of it.
Special thanks to Erin’s sister Karen and brother-in-law Dan for cooking up a special turkey burger recipe that is the perfect combination of delicious and good-for-our-“bottom”-lines. It’s easy and inexpensive too. Enjoy!
