With my busy routine of eating six meals each day, getting to the gym, going to work, attending our son’s sporting activities, cooking, grocery shopping and more, I rarely cook daily meals. Sunday is my meal prep day and also the day I cook for the week for my family.
Rarely do I have the luxury to cook in the middle of the week.
Yesterday I was craving a burger so bad, that I contemplated eating a beef burger! Yowza! That is insane for me. December 1994 or 1996 (I forget) was when I gave up red meat. I haven’t had a steak or hamburger since.
My craving led me to the grocery store. I bought salmon and ground turkey. Last night I cooked the salmon.
Tho I desperately craved biting into a thick and juicy turkey burger, last night I was too tired to season and make the ground turkey.
Today I still craved the burger. 🙂 Lol!
Before you ask, I am listing the ingredients. I did not measure. Sorry. 😦
- 3 lbs of ground turkey
- 3 eggs
- Olive oil
- Spicy Brown Mustard (approximately 1/4 cup)
- Minced elephant garlic – 1/2 of a large clove
- 1 sweet red pepper
- 1 orange bell pepper
- Granulated garlic powder
- Black pepper
- Sweet Spanish Papirika ( a dash)
- Lowry’s Season Salt (a dash)
- McCormick Grillmates Brown Sugar Bourbon (PLENTY)
- Kikkoman Panko Japanese Style Bread Crumbs (at least 1 cup but not 2
- *I usually mix a small can of tomatoe sauce with 1 Tbs. of mustard, 1 Tbs. of brown sugar and 1 Tbs. of lemon juice together. I add half to the uncooked turkey meat and then spoon the remaining over the top of each burger, but I was in a hurry so I skipped this. This mixture keeps the turkey nice and moist)
I thoroughly mixed everything together and used my old plastic Tupperware burger thingies to make perfectly thick shaped burgers.
I used a foiled covered cooking sheet and sprayed with olive oil.
Depending on your oven, you may need to cook them longer or shorter. I broiled the burgers on low for 30 minutes, flipped them and let them cook for another 15 min.
The mixture made 11 burgers; six in one pan, five in the other.
I was chomping at the bits for these babies to cook! Lol!
Since I rarely eat hamburger rolls and I was all out of Ezekial McMuffins, I pondered for a minute on how to hook them up.
Place the burger on a bed of baby leaf spinach, add a half of an avocado and top it with fresh hot salsa! Oh man!! That was delicious. I could have also made a guacamole dip to put on the burger, but I was in a hurry! I took a spin class this morning and was due for my meal. 🙂
This quick meal is just another example of no fuss yet nutritious meal. There are enough burgers for dinner too! #Love
