Turkey burgers are one of our staple dinners. I’ve posted the recipe before. In my opinion turkey burgers are better than ground beef burgers. They feel lighter and healthier too.
Michael followed the recipe base and then started adding the variations. The chopped jalapenos are often in our burgers. And if you’re worried about them being really spicy–they aren’t. Once the jalapenos are cooked they aren’t spicy at all.
I came up with the idea of adding bacon last weekend. Michael and I split a really good Bacon and Blue cheese burger and I mused on the way home “I wonder if we can add chopped bacon to the turkey burgers?”
I seemed to have planted a seed in Michael’s brain because he really wanted to try it. He chopped up uncooked bacon and added it to the turkey burger meat.
The burger was awesome. It was big, thick, juicy and the bacon added a lot of flavor. Since the bacon wasn’t fried in the skillet ahead of time it wasn’t crunchy in the burger. Instead it just had the bacon flavor.
And check out who came out last night!

It’s catching up to me, apparently, too. Every doctor/nurse I saw last week with my injuries asked me first and foremost “How old are you?” Um I’m freakin’ 30. Not old enough to be falling apart, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. It was really annoying and quite insulting.
QUESTION: How old are you and how old do you FEEL? Tell me something that makes you feel younger.
