My little girl has been requesting me to make her a burger for lunch, if only because she wants to squeeze some ketchup on the patty in the form of a smiley face. Ah well, kindergartener. :) Two days ago, I finally got around to making her that burger, a quarter-pound turkey burger with pickles…no onions, no cheese. And she loved it! All she had left over was a two-bite sized piece. I made burgers for hubby and me as well but ours had the 5-basic food groups well-represented…
This is an ideal lunch for my better half who often finds himself in conference calls during lunch time. It’s a meal he can just take to his home office and enjoy amongst office furniture. Hee hee.
We didn’t have any burger buns so I used what we had on hand, whole wheat bread. I used my stove-top grill to cook the burgers. I just love, love, love my stove- top grill!
To make sure the burgers were cooked, I even used my never-before-used thermometer! An internal temperature of 170F means that the burgers are already cooked through. I got a 172F when I checked.
I used ground turkey patties, by the way. I just seasoned both sides of the patties with some salt and pepper and a dash of worcestershire sauce. Then I sprayed the grill pan with cooking spray and proceeded to grill the burgers when the pan was already smokin’ hot. I added a few more dashes of worcestershire after every flip of the burger. The result was a tasty, not to mention juicy, burger that was far from bland. ;)
Hubby, the biggest burger fan, loved it. “Yummy, Munchkin!” he said. I asked if it were better than In-n-Out’s, to which he unblinkingly replied, “Not quite just yet!” Hmp! :D Well, whatever! We’ll be having this again and again and again, that’s for sure. The next one’s going to have fried egg. ;)
Happy Hump Day! :)
