I didn’t used to like ground turkey.  Back in my previous life with no grocery budget to speak of, I’d buy ground turkey because it was cheaper than ground beef.  But it was gristly and just didn’t taste good.  I came across some ground turkey breast on a manager’s special at my grocery store and thought I’d give it another go.  After much searching, I found this amazing recipe.  I’ve made it twice now, tweaked it a bit here and there, and it is a WONDERFUL sandwich.

INGREDIENTS:

FOR BASIL MAYONNAISE:
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sliced fresh basil

FOR TURKEY BURGERS:
¼ cup whole milk
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

⅛ teaspoon Kosher or sea salt

1 pound ground turkey breast
4 whole wheat hamburger buns
lettuce

sharp knife and cutting board

Form into four patties.

Cook on a frying pan or a griddle at medium heat until the internal temperature reaches 165° degrees F.  Be careful because the 19-month-old is going to try to reset everything if he gets ahold of the thermometer and all sorts of alarms and such will go off.
