Freaky Friday Turkey Burgers

Enter the current apron giveaway from Gift an Apron HERE.

TGIF to all the TAG ladies out there in blog land!!!

Last night I made one of our favorite's. It's the new and improved turkey burger that, "Tastes like sausage," according to my husband. He's a real meat and potatoes guy, so that fact he eats these without reservation speaks for itself. The kids also eat them with no fuss! We can't consume all the burgers this recipe makes, so I put them in the fridge and the kids snack on halves the next day.

First: Find your favorite apron and securely fasten to your body.


1 package ground turkey
2 slices bread diced finely
You can also use box style bread crumbs, but I like the results with real bread best.
1-2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1/8 or less tsp ginger
few dashes pepper

Mix ingredients until well combined in large bowl. I use my hand to fully incorporate. Place in fridge for about an hour to chill. Skip this step if mix is cold enough to form patties. The mix may seem a little loose, but that will firm up during cooking.

Preheat skillet to high then reduce heat to low. Place patties on griddle/skillet and let cook until moisture seeps to top of patty. Flip and finish cooking another 8-10 minutes or so... I always check on patty by cutting in half to make sure that it is fully done with NO pink inside. Top with sharp cheddar cheese right after flip and let it melt over the burger. I will often pair with a large helping of vegetable. (This is on a salad plate.)
