These turkey burgers are perfect for a summer lunch!
This whole meal is an easy, tasty variety of healthy foods…
Turkey burgers, roasted sweet peppers, and sweet potato oven fries.
This is my husband’s plate
(He didn’t have any bread/buns with it).
You can tell he likes mustard with it.
I buy a bag of these small sweet peppers for $2 and they add so much flavor
to so many dishes. I use them to season black beans, different soups,
and even salads.
I drizzled some olive oil and some balsamic vinegar over the peppers,
then sprinkled Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt over them.
I’ve been using this salt since I was in college when
a sweet lady from church was teaching me how to make potato salad
and she told me, “I never make it without Jane’s salt!”
I buy it at the local Supermarket for $1.79.
I roasted the peppers at 425 in the oven for about 20 min.
I flipped them over once, half-way through cooking.
I also made some sweet potato oven fries to go with the burgers.
This is one of the easiest and most delicious ways to eat sweet potato.
All I do is peel and slice the sweet potatoes,
then I season them with brown sugar, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar,
and I sprinkle just a tiny bit of salt over them.
They’re done in about 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven.
For crispier fries, leave them in a few minutes longer.
They come out crispy, sweet, delicious!
My favorites are the ones that look a little burnt – the brown sugar caramelizes on them
and they are crunchy goodness!
While the peppers and the “fries” cooked in the oven, I made the burgers on the skillet.
This is how I seasoned the burgers:
In a small bowl, I mixed together:
2 Tb sour cream
3-4 dashes of hot sauce
1 1/2 tsp of: garlic powder and onion powder
1 tsp Jane’s salt
1/4 cup of bread crumbs
2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
I added the mixture to 1 lb of ground turkey.
I shaped 4 patties out of the mixture, and placed on a hot skillet
with 2 tb olive oil, 1 Tb butter, and one half of a large onion, sliced.
I cooked the burgers for 7-10 minutes on med-high heat,
flipped each one and cooked for another 7-10 minutes.
Then I covered the skillet, lowered the heat to the lowest setting
and cooked for another 5-7 minutes.
I turned off the heat and removed the pan from the hot burner,
leaving the burgers covered for an extra 5 minutes.
I toasted the bread for my burger
Then I added the peppers right on top of the patty.
It was a healthy and delicious meal!
