Why good morning! First, be sure you sign up for the Knoshbox Giveaway! I'll choose a winner tonight so you still have time to win a fantastic box of goodies. Second, looking for a nice dinner to chase away the Mondays? No need to worry. I've got your back. Just go defrost a pound of turkey and then we can talk about turkey burgers.
First of all, there is a big difference between frozen turkey burgers and homemade turkey burgers. Frozen patties... not the greatest. Even the best can be a little bland, but homemade are fresh and packed with flavor. I wanted to try a caprese salad inspired burger and this turned out DELICIOUS!!
Fresh basil, sweet sun-dried tomatoes, and salt give the meat a BIG flavor. Using condiments like peppery arugula and spicy brown mustard mix things up while fresh mozzarella literally crowns this burger. Fan-freaking-tastic! We had it with sweet potato french fries, sweet tea, and sauteed veggies.
Trust me, those Mondays don't stand a chance.
