Turkey Burgers

I love a good burger.  Burgers feel like summer to me.  I needed some summer in my life.  Good Things Catered had a turkey burger recipe and I had some turkey left over from my baked ziti, so I gave it a whirl.  Let me just say that these burgers were really yummy.  Hubs could not stop raving!  Next time I might just add some diced onion and minced garlic to the meat for a little more flavor.

    I totally suck at grilling. It always grills/burns on the top and bottom but never cooks all the way through… Come grill some burgers for me… please…?

    You know what’s TOO funny. I tend to add diced onions to mine a lot too. Your fries look REALLY perfect! Nice job! And totally flattered you used me. 🙂
