Kim's Favorite Turkey Burgers w/ Tomato Cucumber Salad

I got this recipe out of the cookbook that my sister-in-law Kim headed up. It's entitled May I Have Your Recipe? It's a collection of family and friends' recipes. I love it and have it open on my counter every single day. This recipe is Kim's recipe and it's called "My Favorite Turkey Burger". We loved it. It was super yummy and really easy. I served it with a tomato cucumber salad. I got this recipe from the blog Dish on Delish (which I think she got it from the blog Rookie Cookie). Try both these recipes was all so yummy and good for you.

Side Note: I told Luke that it was a giant meatball and he was excited to eat the giant meatball. I just cut it up for him and Dylan. They gobbled it up.

3/4 lb ground skinless turkey breast

2 scallions or 1/2 onion, minced (I used green onions)

1 t soy sauce

1 t ketchup

1/4 t garlic powder

4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Form into burgers. Grill until cooked thru, about 7 minutes each side. Easy to cook on stovetop, as well.

I added lettuce, tomato, avocado and turkey bacon. I also added a dollop of barbecue sauce....pretty tasty. You can also add cheese if you like.

Tomato Cucumber Salad

This is pretty much a free for all. You can put anything you like in this. Tonight I added tomato, cucumber, fresh basil and after I took the pic, I decided at the last minute to add mozzarella. (Hint: cut up string cheese into bite size pieces...very easy).

Then add a splash of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, rice wine vinegar, oregano, sea salt and crushed black pepper. Serve chilled. Pretty easy! I might add red onion next time.

I got that fresh organic basil plant at Fresh and Easy...2.99...I use it all the time.

Just pluck off the leaves as you need them.

That looks so good. Did you see Oprah's Turkey Burger? It takes like a day to 2 days to make. I want to try yours and hers out.

We should go to culinary school when kids are all in school.

Sounds like something my mom would tell me, “It’s a giant meatball!” Thank you for visiting my blog - Your comment cracked me up. You can see by my history I’m a “blog-a-day” kind of gal, but my parents came to town and threw me off my game. I have a large backlog of recipes to post but haven’t had a chance to sit down and pound it out. Keep coming back, I promise many more cool foodie blogs to come -brand new one on Wednesday in fact! Okay, just read your parmesan crisps and I’m loving how easy that looks and I bet they taste great to boot.
