BBQ'd Turkey Burgers....

Hello again! We've had some fun summer adventures and visitors lately, and I haven't had time to post, but I have got lots of fun, new recipes to share so stay tuned!!!

Now, I not trying to take any credit on this one, I didn't invent turkey burgers of course, this is one of those posts that's supposed to help you out when you got strolling thru recipes to try to desperately find something to make tonight... or at least that's how it works for me. If I log it as a meal, then when I am planning, it jogs my ol' brain and gets put on the list and is usually under a day that says "something quick and easy!" Hope it works in the same manner for you, because this one should definitely be on the summer meal schedule! Fast, easy, effortless and enjoyed by all!

Ingredients:
Turkey patties, either premade or formed by you with 1 lb. ground turkey
s & p & garlic (or garlic powder)
buns of your choice
avocado (a MUST in my book)
red leave lettuce
thinly sliced red onion
tomato
ketchup & mustard or BBQ sauce

Directions:
If you are making your own patties, you can season your pound of meat with s & p & fresh minced garlic, then knead it all together by hand in a large bowl or you can season them afterwards (which doesn't require you to get your hands dirty!). Then split your pound of ground turkey into 4-5 sections and roll each section into a ball, push them down to make patties. Vo-la. If you haven't yet seasoned them, do that with s & p & garlic powder, and BBQ for a few minutes on each side, these cook quickly and are great for last minute meals! Add your condiments and enjoy!

***Avoiding carbs or wheat?? Try wrapping your burger in red leaf lettuce!***

Hi, a fellow blogger friend found her posts stolen on this blog: http://kidsrecipes.us/bbqd-turkey-burgers/

so I searched around for any of mine and googled random posts and yours came up. Just wanted you to be aware if you weren't. Have a good night.
