Turkey meat is something I often cook with.
But, I feel turkey gets neglected and I’ve mentioned that before such as in my low fat summer turkey stew recipe.
For Lynne and I, especially as we are always watching our pennies, turkey makes an ideal alternative, to the more expensive meat cuts, like beef.
Plus, this quick healthy turkey burger recipe is much healthier than red meat and it’s just so delicious and simple to make!
This quick healthy turkey burger recipe gave me an ideal opportunity to get out my trusty George Forman grill.
I remember as a student this was my one and only trusted cooking device! Ah such memories…… 😉
Now of course you don’t need one of those to make these tasty morsels, you can just use the grill.
When using your grill place a sheet of tin foil on top and your burger patties on top of that to cook. It helps keeps them together.
Also don’t worry about your burger patties being quite wet. The moisture helps the insides cook quickly!
Folks, we will be back after our wee break to Glen Coe. If you follow me on Instagram I’ll try and post some pictures so as not to make you too jealous. 😉
Here’s a picture of buachaille etive mor taken 3 years ago when my friend Mike (that’s him in the picture) and I walked the West Highland Way from Fort William to Glasgow.
This is photographed at the entrance to Glencoe. Magnificent eh?
I was absolutely jobsmacked and humbled. Let’s just say I’ve had my fair share of challenges so far this year, so that’s a highlight Lynne and I will be celebrating in style next week. 😀
