Do you use ground turkey much in recipes?

Honestly, I can use it interchangeably with lean ground beef in recipes and it’s all the same to me. My boys, however, have a different opinion about it. When I made the Kentucky Hot Brown Turkey Burgers and sat them in front of the boys, they both had the same response. They looked at the burger, they looked up at me, then they looked at each other. (heh heh heh) I could see it on their faces, “Does she expect us to eat that?”

Our rule is to try it, and like most other times, they did like the turkey burgers. They are not timid about expressing their food critiques though and said next time to make them spicier.

It’s next time.

I brought the heat.

Enter….Sriracha!!

  4. Hi Paula,
    I am using ground turkey in everything these days! lol. It’s so much healthier and I love the taste. I never eat it in the warmer months so I always look forward to it this time of year.
    Love this recipe. The combination of ingredients looks fantastic. Pinned!

    1. Thanks for sharing on Pinterest. I feel the same way, I’d never by ground beef if it weren’t for my boys!

  5. Okay, I have NEVER heard of sriricha. What is it?? These look yummy but I don’t know what that ingredient is!

    1. It’s a hot sauce. The bottle is in the background. I usually find it in the Asian section of the grocery store. It’s REALLY hot, you could sub another hot sauce if you can’t find it. I put it on everything 🙂

    1. I really like turkey burgers too, Emily. I have to spice them up for the boys and my husband though, but if I make them hot enought they don’t complain! Thanks for sharing!
