Great meals made easy!
It’s been a long time since I posted. A lot has been going on during the past year, and now we all find ourselves in a situation none of us could have ever imagined. I don’t have to repeat all the details of the pandemic, you all know what’s going on. I will only say I hope you and yours are doing well and that you are practicing social/physical distancing and washing those hands…keep singing Happy Birthday!
As a bit of a diversion, and since we are all basically at home, I thought it would be a good time to share an easy, healthy recipe.
I am not a big fan of ground turkey. I find that, unless I use it in crock-pot chili, I can still always taste the poultry flavor too much, which doesn’t fake my taste buds into thinking I’m eating red meat. But I recently came across a recipe that I think solves the problem and makes for a great hamburger alternative. The recipe I saw actually originated with Rachael Ray, but there are a few other variations.
You’ll notice ingredients you might not have thought to include in a burger. But each one adds moisture and good flavor to this turkey burger. And yes, I know…putting poultry seasoning in would seem to defeat my purpose, but it really works. So give this recipe a try and see what you think.
You can top the turkey burgers with cranberry sauce and scallions, and add lettuce; serve them on a toasted English muffin or a hamburger bun. Or create your own toppings.
