I’ve bought mediterranean turkey burgers on the menu at this time and it’s SHOCKING.
As a result of it seems that I don’t detest turkey burgers in any case.
Not less than not when they’re trashed up like this.
I do know! Proper?
In case you’ve been studying lengthy sufficient, then you realize that at the start of our marriage, Eddie virtually scarred me for all times along with his consumption of turkey burgers. And never simply any consumption – these burgers have been, like, completely PLAIN and dry and all the things terrible that you simply all the time hear about turkey burgers. That’s what he ate. On a regular basis! Each single day. It was his bachelor meal or one thing.
I imply, he made them a lot that I even bought sick of simply them.
Now, I’ve had just a few saves right here and there. These gorgonzola turkey burgers are notably scrumptious and these turkey quinoa meatballs are additionally nice too. And nowadays, I take advantage of floor turkey on a regular basis, for tacos and virtually all the time for the Bolognese in The Fairly Dish, nevertheless it wasn’t till this burger that I really needed to EAT a turkey BURGER.
Like I needed to devour one alone free will.
That day has come! It’s at this time!
And an enormous heaping scoop of creamy artichoke feta might need one thing to do with it…
However who cares. It’s fab and I’m going to inform you all about it.
There may be a lot goodness in these! Contemporary spinach, roasted pink peppers and garlic. On high, a scrumptious and creamy artichoke feta unfold that’s tremendous tacky and provides tons of taste. After which! Fast pickled onions for slightly zing.
And slightly sizzling pink as a result of… it’s me. Let’s be actual.
The burger itself shouldn’t be dry and gross. It’s really tender and sure – moist – except you’d like me to say it’s damp or soggy or mushy, there isn’t a different phrase. You recognize? Juicy, I suppose. However that phrase is sort of as dangerous. Juicy!
They’re juicy. It’s true.
I’m obsessive about these burgers as sliders too. And even as meatballs, dipped within the feta unfold and served with the pickled onions!
The burgers are superb when served over a salad too. My favourite Greek salad? Perfection. Add a number of pita. A spritz of lemon.
Annnnd now I’m ravenous.
