The other day I went food shopping and nothing really appealed to me as I walked up and down the aisles. Sometimes I can grab things for multiple meals, but this day I couldn’t see my next meal in front of my face. But, because I needed to bring something in, I bought some ground turkey and decided to make a burger.
…with a few twists.
There’s nothing magical or super creative about this recipe…just the message to not get stuck in a rut.
Push it, mix it up; your next meal doesn’t have to be like your last.
No two burgers have to be the same.
Turkey can be dry so I decided to stuff it with a wedge of Laughing Cow Blue Cheese (35 calories) and some parsley. And because it was turkey, I thought it would pair well with fruit so I threw some frozen cherries into the pan as I was caramelizing the onions. It was a good call and broke down beautifully adding color and sweetness.
Yes, it was a thick burger (but small in circumference :)) which helped keep it moist. That and the sweet onions on top!
Happy May…Happy National Burger Month!
