What we had for dinner (and lunch!)

Last night's dinner was so good that we had no leftovers so I just HAD to make it again for lunch today. Plus, it gave me the chance to get some pictures so I could share it with you all!

Western Style Turkey Burgers
* 1.25 lbs ground turkey
* 1/2 cup spinach or broccoli (or veggie of your choice - I used puree since I had it on hand)
* 1/2 cup quick cooking oatmeal
* 1/2 cup salsa
* 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
* Cheese (whatever you like or have on hand, I used cheddar)
* Hamburger buns
* lettuce
* Crispy Onions (I used garlic pepper flavor)
* BBQ sauce
* 16 oz sour cream
* 1 packet taco seasoning

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl and mix together using your hands:

2. Form 6 to 8 equal size patties and cook using preferred method. When making homemade burgers I really like to use my griddle but you can also do them on the stove top or on a grill (with foil underneath or they will fall through the slats). Sometimes we cook up all the burgers so that we have lunch the next day, sometimes I freeze 4 of the uncooked patties for dinner on a different day:

3. While the burgers are cooking, mix the sour cream and taco seasoning together. There will be a bunch leftover, it makes a great dip for tortilla chips or homemade potato fries! Also cut the cheese and prep the buns - on the bottom bun layer lettuce, onion crisps and BBQ sauce, spread the taco seasoned sour cream on the top bun.

4. Once the burger is cooked to your liking, add the cheese and continue cooking until melted. I put a foil tent over them so it melts faster. We paired our burgers with homemade potato salad for a delicious dinner (and an equally delicious lunch the next day!):
