Tailgating at Troy

Go Trojans!  It’s another football weekend – for another grandkiddo – we divide our time between all our grandkids’ activities and this Saturday it is Trojan Time.   Sister is coming in town for some time with me and to see another of her great nephews in their activities.

One of the things we will be serving, is Turkey Burgers….I don’t eat beef.  Oldest daughter found this somewhere out in cyberspace and they look yummy.   That won’t be all we will be serving, but that is my “all” that I am looking forward to.

Here’s the handy dandy recipe – I plan on having hubby make these up quite often on the grill at home.

Turkey Burgers

1 lb. ground turkey meat (preferably thigh meat)

1 medium red onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup fresh parsley, minced (or other fresh herbs if you would rather)

1 Tbsp garlic powder (or less if you wish)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper


Mix ingredients together and form 4-6 patties.  They should look like this:

turkey burgers

Grill on medium heat for 7 minutes a side.  2 minutes before burgers are done, place a slice of cheese (optional) on each patty.  Serve hot.

Any herb or seasoning would be good in this burger.   What about my homemade taco seasoning mix?  Man!   Or a package of ranch dressing mix?   And what about some Italian seasoning herb mix?   There you go!

A very versatile recipe you can change up each time you make these.

Hope your team of your choice wins!   Have a great weekend.

  1. I will be cooking two pots of soup this Saturday. Tomato Cheese Tortilini (not sure I spelled it right) and Chile Soup for BUNCO girls. I’m going to make pumpkin and leaf shaped toasted cheese sandwiches, make a grave yard dip and finish with whoopee pies shaped like pumpkins and leaves! Hope everyone enjoys it! Would love to win!
