Curried Turkey Burgers

And we’re back. Not sure exactly what happened, but little TJ’s birthday came, then Christmas, then I started doing some childcare and somehow, in all of that, this lovely little blog lacked attention. So let’s give this another go! And why not start back up with one of my favourite combinations?! Take a guess… well, I guess the title gave it away. Today I’m sharing how to make curried turkey burgers.

I must say, I love how easy burgers are to make, but sometimes I want a change. This recipe is no harder than making your own beef burgers. For me, a big plus to this recipe is that little TJ loves these burgers. We went through a bit of a rough patch on finding food he would actually eat, but I think we are back on track. He went through a stage in December and January where he would not eat leftovers! I always try to make enough dinner so that we have leftovers for lunch the next day and he would never eat them, even if he had eaten dinner the night before. A child of mine that doesn’t eat leftovers is bad news. So he pretty much ate fried eggs, cheese, crackers and frozen veggies for lunch every day. And I mean, every single day. How is he ok with eating the same lunch every day if he won’t eat the same meal twice (for dinner and then lunch)? You got me… but I am thankful to say, at the moment, that stage has passed. I think. I hope I haven’t spoken too soon. In any case, he has eaten these burgers at 3 different meals in the past few days and hasn’t left any on his tray. I’m a happy momma!

Now I may be slightly biased as I worked for this company, but in my opinion, the best red curry paste out there is Thai Kitchen. It has a full, balanced flavour and doesn’t overwhelm you with heat. Lots of flavour with minimal heat is good in my books because you can always add more heat yourself. I’m not the best for handling heat and TJ definitely isn’t. If you know of another brand you think I should try, let me know because I would be happy to expand my horizons!

Also, my recommended toppings for these burgers would be avocado, cilantro and tomato. I was unfortunately out of tomato at the time, but it would be a great addition. I also found that Dijon mustard complimented the flavours. But feel free to try out your own favourite burger toppings on these scrumptious patties!
