What's Cookin' Wednesday? Turkey Burgers!

A few disclosures to start out this post:
1.  These photos are from July.  It's just me and 'da kids this week, so I am not cooking any big meals. Don't want to let TOO much food go to waste.
2.  The photos don't actually have ground TURKEY in them, it is actually ground pork (I think).  I have found it to be nearly impossible to find any kind of turkey in the Netherlands.
3.  Sorry if the talk of all of this meat offends anyone.

Alright, so if I have ever entertained you during the summer (in Minnesota, with a grill), you have likely had these.  This is the ONLY recipe that I sort of created on my own.  Amazing that I only have one almost original recipe, isn't it?

Jen's Turkey Burgers
So what do you need? 
1 lb      ground turkey (or whatever ground meat you can find, as in my case)
1 tsp.    Worcestershire sauce
3/4 tsp.  garlic salt
1/2 tsp.  pepper
1/2 c     shredded cheese (amount can be adjusted to your liking)

What to do?  Pretty simple... 
1.  Combine all ingredients
2.  Form into patties
3.  Grill as desired

(or, fry in pan if you live in somewhere you can't have a grill)
 My patties never look very pretty.  Any tips?
Luckily they get put in a bun, so are pretty much covered up.  Extra piece of cheese?  Totally optional.  I just LOVE cheese.

Oh, and which day did we have these?  July 4th, of course.  Wanted to have one of the most American meals we could.  So, here is what we had with it:
Yes ma'am, those are Nacho Cheese Doritos.  Numnumnum, a TREAT in this household.  Oh, and I think that is the whole bag right there.  The whole "smaller package sizes" in Europe is NOT a myth.

And what do you get when you add turkey burgers + doritos?
Happy boys, especially when a little one gets to have an oreo too (that would be why his mouth is black).


Linking up again with Heather at Life as We Know It with Two Twinkies and a Tator Tot for What's Cookin' Wednesdays.

So glad you wrote about turkey burgers! My son has been eating them like crazy, and I needed a new idea. (My advice--Have the third baby---I was on the fence about that for a long time, and wish I had! Too old now!
