Barney: This tastes so good, I’m worried I’m going to get this burger pregnant.

I promised I’d post some of the recipes I’ve been trying out. I decided to go with a turkey burger recipe since it’s tasty and super easy to make. See, even this little guy can do it.
Here is the blue cheese turkey burger recipe I came across. I added some of my own flair to it.
First, I didn’t have mushrooms, so I didn’t use them. It turns out I didn’t miss them at all.
I took one egg (because I was only making a few burgers), about a tablespoon of garlic powder, tablespoon of onion powder, a bunch of freshly ground black pepper, and then I just guestimated the blue cheese (maybe 1/2 cup or so) and mixed it all up with the ground turkey meat.
After that I shaped my patties and then slapped them into my frying pan over medium heat. I believe it took about 10 minutes or so to cook thoroughly.
While the burgers were cooking I caramelized my onions. Ok, I burned my onions but luckily they still tasted pretty good. Note to self, turn down onions and cook near the end.
After the burgers were cooked, I toasted slices of bread because we didn’t have buns, and put just a little bit of wasabi mayo from Trader Joe’s onto the toast. Then I sliced up tomato, threw that on there with some spinach, the cooked burger and some more blue cheese sprinkled on top and there you have it. The wasabi combined with the flavors of blue cheese in the turkey burger were incredible. I don’t have any pictures of the completed burger but it was yum tastic. I will definitely make those again!
