OK, so lots of running goes down outside.

So I wanted to share with you a recipe that changed my life. My bestest friend Emily whipped these up over the weekend. She got the recipe from another friend, who I don’t know. But I would like to credit him for it because it really changed, my life. OK, not really. But it is 100% my new go to turkey burger recipe.

The Best Turkey Burgers Ever


I had to bake this batch because we ran out of propane. Either way is great!

Ingredients: 8 burgers

  • 2 packs of turkey burger ( I use a lean and a not so lean)
  • 1 cup of Italian seasoned Panko bread crumbs
  • 2-3 T of dijon mustard
  • 1 egg
  • S&P to taste


  1. Mix all ingredients in bowl. Start w/ 1/2 cup of the crumbs and add till the meat stops sticking to your hands. Could be more or less than 1 cup.
  2. Make meat into patty’s, pop in fridge for about 30 min
  3. Grill ’em up and enjoy! I like to make a few extra patties and put them in the freezer so they are good to go!

* I paired them with a balsamic mushroom above.

Here’s another great side for these! I am always looking for a summer side dish minus the mayo. I tried this coleslaw recipe from Cooking Light  and I really enjoyed it! I’ve made it twice already!

Tangy Mustard Seed Coleslaw20140603_210211


  • 8 cups pre-sliced green cabbage (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion (I made my second batch sans onion)
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil (I used olive)
  • 2 tablespoons brown mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds (used 1/2 T of ground, couldn’t find seeds)
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped ( I tossed in whole)
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar (I added about double)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl.

2. Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add mustard and cumin seeds; cook 90 seconds or until mustard seeds begin to pop. Remove from heat. Stir in garlic and jalapeño; let stand 2 minutes. Add vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper, stirring with a whisk. Pour vinegar mixture over cabbage mixture; toss to coat. Let stand 15 minutes. I let stand over night!
