Turkey Burgers a.k.a. Cheater Day

Not imaginative, I know. And yet another meal we’ve had before, many, many times! But here’s the deal. We are working on living on a budget, which means eating out a lot less. *SIGH* We love to eat out. Love, love, love it! I especially love it when I don’t feel like cooking, which is often when I’m pressed for time. So what does one do when you used to go out when that happened? Cook something fast and easy, that’s what! I’ve been trying to freeze leftovers for situations like this, but sometimes that’s not practical. Like today. We visited my parents this weekend and came home on Sunday. I knew I wasn’t going to feel like cooking after spending 3 1/2 hours in the car and there wasn’t going to be enough time for heating up something in the oven, so I planned turkey burgers! They cook in about 15 minutes, so while they’re cooking, I’m slicing cheese, tomatoes, pickles and washing the lettuce. This time I “fried” an egg to put on top of my husband’s burger to change it up a bit! He LOVED it!

I super cheated this time. I bought frozen turkey burger patties from Trader Joes. I could make my own, and if I ever think ahead enough, I will. I have an amazing meatloaf recipe that makes super flavorful burgers, which I’ll share one of these days!
