I love burgers. They’re actually a huge downfall for me when we go out to eat. I just want a burger. With bacon. And cheese. And lots of mayo.
For a little silly story about me, I grew up hating hamburgers. I would temper tantrum, I would cry, and I would end up getting chicken nuggets or a hot dog whenever hamburgers were served. They repulsed me. I didn’t want to have anything to do with that weird piece of pressed together meat that I had no idea what was mixed in (yet, I’d eat a hot dog haha.) My first hamburger that I ate willingly without a temper tantrum was after my senior year in high school, when In ‘n Out Burger moved into town. It changed my life. And I began to experiment with burgers from other places and burgers with other meats.
Today, burgers are one of my favorite foods.
Though ground beef is my favorite meat in a burger, this turkey burger was divine. The flavors were great, it was juicy, and I wish I had room to eat a second!
Mushroom Turkey Burgers

4 mushrooms, diced
1 lb ground turkey
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp parsley, chopped

1. In a large bowl mix together the diced mushrooms, turkey, green onions, salt, parsley, mustard, and steak sauce with your hands. Form the meat into four even sized patties.
2. Press the dried mushrooms onto both sides of all four patties.
3. Heat up a cast iron skillet. Spray with cooking spray. Add the patties and cook for 7 minutes per side.
4. Serve you burgers on buns and add any condiments you desire. I had mayonnaise, mustard, lettuce, tomato, and onion.
