Simon & Garfunkel Turkey Burgers


I love Saturday afternoons...the morning chores and errands out of the way and time to relax, have a late lunch and pop in a DVD. This week - an old Al Pacino movie...Sea of Love (good thing I never remember endings...this one still surprised me). And lunch...burgers, but homemade turkey burgers made with my favorite spicy Kozlik's Horseradish mustard and lots of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Naturally I couldn't help but name them....

Simon & Garfunkel Burgers


We had them slathered with mayo and more horseradish mustard, but seeing them in the pan reminded me of dinners my mother used to make...

...without the buns but with mashed potatoes (make that sweet potatoes for the South Beach Diet fans among us) and a little cranberry chutney (okay, perhaps NOT the chutney for the SBDers)

And given all those glorious fresh herbs...a perfect dish for Kalyn's Weekend Herb Blogging Event, this week hosted by Simona of Briciole.

I like your Saturday's better. Mine are usually spent in the garden...which really sucks in the winter!
Great looking burgers!

Thanks Katie, no garden here, so there's not much else to do. Although today we did go for a long walk in a beautiful park on the mouth of Halifax Harbour. Although it was -12 degrees C!

How about moving boxes? That was my Saturday and a bit of Sunday. That's a really funny name for your burgers, Ruth. They sound like a really nice Saturday fare.

Sounds really good. I better have mine with sweet potatoes though!

These look great, Ruth. I'm always looking for ways to dress up a turkey burger.

Cheers!

-12C is chilly, but these turkey burgers sound like the perfect antidote!
