Tasty Turkey Burgers

My husband is a meat and potatoes guy.  Sure, he likes food of different ethnic backgrounds, but his heart remains with a good NY Strip steak, a steaming baked potato and maybe a salad if he has room for it in his tummy.  He always eats the salad last when we have it with steak so that he doesn’t waste precious tummy room on lettuce and such. 


Most dinners that we eat include meat of some sort.  Spaghetti?  Meat in the sauce.  Quesadillas?  Chicken and cheese, please.  When I planned the menu this week, my husband was no where to be found.  So instead of regular chili, we had white chili with chicken.  Instead of hamburgers, we had turkey burgers. 


I am the first to admit that if you are craving a big juicy burger, turkey burgers don’t cut it.  But if you are wanting something a little different and want to use the grill a couple of more times before you have to put it away for the year, try this turkey burger.
