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.) IMG_6944

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!

Turkey burgers are soooo delicious! They’re very flavorful considering how nutritious they are compared to regular burgers, and better suited for everyday dinners.

Those look so delicious!! I pin so many things on Pinterest and it can take me ages to get to them, if I even get to them at all :)

these look so good, and i can totally sub out garlic for onion, and am not allergic! win! except now I want one right now.

I’m thinking of making this for thanksgiving lunch and then a roasted turkey for dinner. I’m pretty sure this will be a hit, I just have to make sure that my ground turkey breast and the turkey that I will roast are healthy and does not contain any antibiotics or hormones. It is important that we choose turkeys that are humanely-raised and all-natural because that’s the only way to achieve juicy and great-tasting turkey.
