*sigh* I was really hoping to share an awesome turkey burger idea. I had grand plans for my leftover ground turkey. The results was alright but they could have been so much better.
I added diced pineapple, red pepper, green pepper, oats and soy sauce to the meat and formed 2 patties. In hindsight I should have added an egg white. It would have helped to hold them together but even without the falling apart issue, they needed something else in the flavor department. Maybe ginger, teriyaki sauce or even just some onion.
You may be wondering why I’d even bother to share an idea that failed. Well, as I said in my Failed Apple Chutney Turkey Loaf, one of the goals with my blog is to inspire people to cook more at home. I don’t blog to share perfected recipes. I blog to inspire, motivate and offer ideas. The blog gives me a fun, creative outlet because, as you guys know, I get zippy support in the food department with the husband. He wouldn’t care if gave up cooking altogether and we ate TV dinners for the rest of our lives.
NOT. Gonna. Happen.
So I’m here sharing stories, photos, recipies and yes, fails, in hopes it gives you an idea or inspires you to try something new. My turkey burgers may not have come out perfect but I still enjoyed them. It was a fun, healthy lunch even though some of it needed to be eaten with a fork. ;)
I will try this idea again and hopefully have a more successful recipe to share. In the meantime keep cooking! It’s fun!
