Welcome to the Hymns & Home Weekly Recipe Share!
Who doesn’t love a quick and easy dinner that’s also tasty and healthy? These Easy Turkey Burgers, adapted from my mom’s recipe, are one of my go-to’s for a quick midweek meal. I love pairing them with homemade hamburger buns, our favorite BBQ sauce, and some sweet potato fries from Trader Joe’s (they have awesome frozen sweet potato fries!).
Here’s a tip – when making burgers (or cooking meat of any kind for that matter), use a meat thermometer to get your meat just right. Before you scroll on thinking, “I don’t need a meat thermometer,” I’m here to tell you it’s a game changer. It’s not just a matter of getting your meat cooked enough that it’s safe to eat – it’s getting it to a safe point without over-cooking it that’s key! No one wants a dried-out hockey puck of a burger!
My favorite meat thermometer is my “Thermapen” by Thermoworks. It is instant-read and suitable for all sorts of applications – cooking, grilling, baking, candy-making… You can read more about why I love my Thermapen in this blog post. (P.S. Don’t buy one off Amazon – it’ll be a fake! They only sell them directly from Thermoworks.)
I hope you enjoy these Easy Turkey Burgers as much as I do!
