It’s Friday and raining in Charlotte with a forecasted, unseasonable high of 61 degrees. Cooler temps are returning later in the weekend with another chance of snow here on Sunday/Monday. We’re just going from one extreme to another here in North Carolina.
Since we usually do a grocery store run on Friday, I’m already thinking ahead on some easy dinners for the weekend our kids will also like. In the new year, I cut back on my animal protein intake, but do still enjoy a little meat a couple of times a week. Like most kids, our boys love burgers. We often use ground beef or bison, but for a while now, my favorite burger is this turkey burger. And, I believe I’ve found the best turkey burger recipe, like ever! Turkey burgers can sometimes be dry and flavorless, but not these.
Over the years, we’ve tried a number of food delivery services in hopes of taking the guesswork out and shaving some time off of our hectic, weekday dinner routine. We’ve honestly never found a service we’ve loved and stuck with for any length of time. So if you have, please do share the company in the comments below. I think Blue Apron may have been our maiden food delivery voyage over six or seven years ago. We may have stuck with the program for a month, although my memory is a bit foggy on those details.
When we cancelled our Blue Apron subscription, we ended up with a couple of recipes we still make at our house on the regular. This turkey burger recipe is one of those. There’s something about the lemongrass and ginger paired with the garlic aioli and marinated radishes that always has me craving this burger. Over time, we’ve adapted the original recipe a bit here and there to accommodate our taste buds, especially our love for extra garlic aioli.
For my burger, I usually use Canyon Bakehouse gluten free bread, and honestly, I don’t miss the hamburger bun. We usually serve our turkey burgers with an easy vegetable (The grilled okra was from late summer when I took the photos.) and sweet potato fries. And, I highly recommend adding some extra garlic aioli to your burger. We make ours with avocado mayonnaise. Give these a try and let me know if you also think they are the best turkey burgers.
Happy Weekend friends! Hoping your February is off to a nice start and the weather isn’t too bad where you are.
