It’s Friday! Woohoo! Let’s get messy-yummy-goodness and dirty your white shirt with this scrumptious burger!
What you need:
- lean turkey 20oz
- 1/2 cup flax seed meal
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup organic ketchup
- 1/4 soy sauce
- finely chopped garlic
- finely chopped onions
- fresh pepper
- cheddar cheese
- red leaf lettuce, or any large leaf lettuce
- sweet potato fries from Trader Joes
- jalopeno peppers
- bay leaves
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup of apple cider vinegar
First make the pickled peppers (original recipe from Rachael Ray): Bring to boil 1 cup water, 1 cup vinegar, and 1/4 cup sugar. While vinegar boils, chop cucumbers in thick diagonal slices, slice jalapeno peppers in slices, mix in bowl with chopped dill and layer a Tupperware: place one layer peppers/cucumbers mix, put a bay leaf, add 2nd layer of cucumbers/peppers, then add bay leaf, continue layers to brim. Pour vinegar over and refrigerate for 1 hour or more. I prefer to have this marinate overnight, but 1 hour is good.
Burger: mix turkey meat with flax seed meal, egg, ketchup, soy, garlic, onions, and fresh pepper then make into patties. Cook on grill and when almost done place cheese on top to melt.
As your grilling burgers, place sweet potatoes in oven to cook.
Prepare plate with large leaf lettuce, slice tomatoes, and other condiments. Serve with pickled chips and fries- voila!
Make extra, some may want more than 1 burger 😀
