Yum, Yum, Yum in my Tum, Tum, Tum!!!

Simple treat for a Friday night evening in with Mr. Potts was in order this past weekend.

We were both tired, we were hungry & wanted easy.

I pulled out a pound of lean ground turkey, threw some spices in, Mr. Potts threw them on the grill and we feasted!

We loved it & Mr. Potts actually said they were so good that he'd take these over regular burgers - except when he's hung over & craving grease. Cause you know, a greasy bacon cheeseburger makes all hangovers better. Especially if you could throw some peanut butter on there!!

Thought I'd share the recipe since it really was so easy & we loved it.

Mrs. Potts' Easy Peasy Turkey Burgers...YUM

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey breast
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Red Pepper Flakes to your liking (we like it a little spicy)
Directions
  • Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pat out 4-5 patties, depending on how big you like them. Mine tend to be puffy & then I flatten them on the grill.
  • Coat Grill with Cooking spray.
  • Place on grill and let them sit for a minute.
  • Using a spatula, press down so that the patties are more evenly spread (i.e. not so big and puffy).
  • Cook for5 minutes over medium to medium high heat on both sides.
We served these with whole grain breads, spicy mustard, ketchup, slice of turkey bacon, lettuce, tomato & a little Miracle Whip. It was perfect!

Great Burgers - no pictures - we devoured them!!!

If you try them, let me know what you think.

Happy Monday Y'all! Hope your week will be wonderful.

If you have a chance to, make sure to head over to Megan's Blog & congratulate her & Brent on the birth of baby Cohen. Such a little miracle who could use all the good wishes we can send them.

I made a big batch of turkey balls Sunday night! I saved some of the meat and made a couple burgers and froze them. I use my mini food processor to add shred onion,celery,zucchini,carrots, etc. and add that to the turkey mixture...and an egg or 2 and then almost every spice on my spice rack (and I used fresh sage and basil from my herb garden this time!)
Somtimes, I throw some fat free feta in the mixture too! Ground turkey has so many options! :)
