Garlic and Ranch Turkey Burgers

>> Monday, June 21, 2010

I apologize for the extended absence! I was able to take a spur-of-the-moment trip to Idaho to visit my family for 10 days and had the BEST time! My hubby stayed home with our older kiddos, and I took off with our 3 year old. It's taken me the last 3 days to settle into being back home. Grocery shopping may have to wait until Friday, so things may not be back to normal around here until next week.

But for now, I was able to find an old recipe that I tried a while ago but forgot to post. I found it from a cooking blog called Mommy Meals, and she found it from Allrecipes. I didn't change a thing in this recipe. My hubby was really skeptical about the ground turkey. We've only ever tried ground turkey once before in a chili recipe, and it was TERRIBLE. But now I know it was the recipe's fault and not the turkey! These were really tasty!

Ingredients:
1 pound ground turkey
1 package ranch dressing mix
1 egg
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper

Preheat your grill on medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Mix ingredients together and form into patties. Cook until well-done, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 165 degrees.

We topped ours with mayo, lettuce, tomato, bacon and avocado. Delish!

I am glad you loved it as much as we did. I was a little weary of cooking with ground turkey but I found that if you find the right recipe it tastes great and is healther.

Ok I must know, where in Idaho did you go? We lived in twin falls for about 2 years.

I went to Northern Idaho, specifically Coeur d'Alene. My husband and I grew up there. :)
