Simple Turkey Burgers

Tuesday 25 July 2017

Burger night tonight with Simpe Turkey Burgers.  Nothing fancy here, but so delicious, especially if you make the Cranberry Mayonnaise to go along with them!

Its a very easy burger mix . . .  just ground turkey, with a minced red onion, some minced parsley, salt, pepper and garlic.

Nothing fancy, but it doesn't need to be . . . more often than not, simple ingredients put together in the proper proportion and way taste utterly fabulous . . .  proof positive that there is no need to really complicate things!

Do make the cranberry mayo however . . .  it's just perfect with these tasty burgers, giving them just a little bit of extra oomph!

My turkey patties today were extra thin, and so melted Dutch Masaam cheese on top and layered them double decker style in the bun . . .

That cheese is so holey that two slices don't make up much more than one slice of cheese anyways . . .  just look at how delicious these look  . . .  I added some shredded lettuce on top of that delicious mayo . . . and with a bit of additional chopped red onion on top, these were nothing short of perfection!

This delicious Cranberry Mayo is also fabulous on chicken or turkey sandwiches.  We just love it!   I served these with a  delicous Caesar salad on the side.  You can look forward to that recipe tomorrow! Bon Appetit!


  1. It would be pork here but it all sounds mouth watering..isn't it so funny we don't like ground chicken or turkey..we usually like everything almost:)

    1. I don't like ground chicken much Monique! We all have our food quirks. I am thinking ground pork would be delicious done this way! xo

  2. Gee whiz, that cranberry mayo sound simple but delicious! I can remember when cranberry sauce was an unusual thing in England...but then, I am old! LOL!

    1. I've never had any problem finding it here in the 17 years I have been here Kay! Thank goodness! It's quite common now! The grocery stores all have their own name brand and there is Ocean Spray as well! The Cranberry Mayo is the best! xo
