Greg is not a big fan of turkey burgers, so when he came home one night after a long workday and I told him what was for dinner his face fell. This is exactly the reaction I wanted and I didn’t have a smart reply, well not one I can print. The point is not that we occasionally fight like any other married couple over what goes on the dinner table. The point is: I was right. My turkey burgers rocked. That calls for a big old: Nanny nanny boo boo.
Top with Mexican slaw and serve with margaritas or Mexican beer.
Cilantro Turkey Burgers
- 1 to 1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey
- 1/2 cup cilantro, stems and all
- 1/4 medium onion
- 2 tbsp salsa

In a blender or food processor, puree salsa, cilantro and onion. Drizzle in just enough olive oil to get the mixer to blend, if necessary. Mix cilantro mix with ground meat, using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to incorporate evenly. Season with salt and pepper.
