guys, i have had this gem of a recipe pinned for a year.
why did i wait so long to make it?!
i fixed these last night for marshall and myself. i skipped a few things.. like making my own cranberry sauce and brioche buns (thanks, whole foods.)
but i did make the burgers and they are seriously amazing! packed with flavor from the garlic and herbs, these turkey burgers are sure to be made again and again. i added some thyme and scaled the recipe back for two.
the cranberry sauce and herbs in the burger were definitely reminiscent of thanksgiving, as were the sweet potato fries we ate with them, so that’s what i named them!
