I really love turkey burgers. I love the fact that they are supposed to be healthier for you than regular burgers and I love that they are made from turkey. I love turkey. It's flavourful and it's lean and it makes great burgers Turkey is also supposed to be a super food. So all round, it's a favourite with me.
This version is packed with some lovely flavours. Onion, Garlic . . . spinach (there's that health thing again.)
A good balsamic vinegar . . . for a bit of sweetness. Soy sauce . . . for a bit of saltiness. Some lemon juice for freshness. A bit of chili powder for a little spark. Some bread crumbs for binding . . . and a good white cheddar cheese. There is nothing nicer than English Cheddar. They invented it you know. The thing with a good cheddar is . . . a tiny bit goes a very long way.
A good burger is made even better with the toppings you choose to put with it. A a slice of cheddar to melt over top and a toasted buttery brioche bun. Lettuce and mayonnaise. Sliced red onions. That's the perfect burger in my books. I am in heaven.
