Quarter-Pound Turkey Burger with Cheese

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! :)

    Hi Keith! I use ground turkey as a substitute for ground beef, in pasta sauces, longanisa, dimsum, etc. I’d say it’s a worthy substitute. The burger, although it probably doesn’t look it in the photo, was juicy. ;) Two thumbs up from my burger loving hubby. ;)
