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.
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!
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
