Eat Shrink and Be Merry, page 134
I made these turkey burgers before and was not a huge fan. Trying them again I used less cilantro and they were awesome! My only guess is that I don’t like cilantro and used too much last time. I was using dry over fresh like the recipe calls for – and I probably used 2 TBSP dried when I made them before. But anyway, these were so good. The leftovers tonight were just as good and I am sad there is no more – can not wait to make these again.
This recipe uses a peanut sauce to make them different from your regular burger. You mix a bit of the sauce in with the meat mixture and smear the rest on them while they are cooking. I really can not say enough good things for this cookbook. I cooked from it 3 times alone on Saturday – I live off this book.
I served the turkey burgers on a sun dried tomato tortilla with hot sauce, onions, tomatoes and lettuce. On the side I served up some grilled corn on the cob.
Doesn’t that corn look delicious? I have never BBQ’d corn on the cob before but it was easy. I dipped some olive oil on it and tossed it on the grill with the burgers. Ready in 10-15! Easy and no mess to clean up.
And in case anyone is wondering – the calories in a turkey burger was 230 calories according to the cookbook. To me that seemed a really low – peanut sauce has a lot of calories and I couldn’t find a light option like the book called for. But still they were awesome.
