See what I did there?
I tricked you into thinking I was going to blog about lamb burgers.
That my friends, is a turkey burger.
I should have titled the post gobble gobble burger. or maybe ga ga burger?
But then it sounds like I made a burger inspired by Lady Gaga. Which would totally be something I would do.
These turkey burgers were one of the best burgers that have happened in my kitchen.
And Steve wants everyone to know he made them.
I had an idea to throw a bunch of cilantro in the burger. Which Steve said his mom did all the time.
Always trying to one up me.
The other thing that made these burgers is pickled onion. Spicy red onions get mellowed out and tangy with apple cider vinegar and salt. No pickles needed.
Two birds with one stone.
They’re topped with pepper jack cheese, tomato, pickled red onions, sprouts, and avocado. on a whole wheat bun.
There are still a couple hot weekends to have a bbq. hint hint labor day.
Make these and impress your friends. Pair it with Lemonade, Potato or Macaroni Salad, orrr Some Mango Margaritas.
Take it all outside and blast your favorite Summer album.
Music makes everything better.
May I make a suggestion?
Ba Ba Ba (Turkey) Burgers
makes 4 burgers
1 lb ground turkey, I prefer 93/7 which means 93% meat 7% fat
about 2 t grill/steak seasoning
about 1/4 c chopped cilantro
Mix it up, throw it on a grill. or in a pan. cook completely.
Top it with your favorite fixins.
If you’re topping with cheese, top with cheese and cover loosely with a lid or foil, best way to get the melted cheesy goodness.

1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
