I made these turkey burgers for dinner the night before Gabi’s last performance in her senior play. We had roasted asparagus and baked sweet potatoes, too. It was a simple and delicious meal, but we were running late, so I didn’t get a chance to take a photo–oops! But here’s Gabi after the rose ceremony–a ceremony at the end of the school year where the first graders give the twelfth graders a rose to send them out into the world. At the beginning of the year, the seniors gave the first graders a rose to welcome them to the school. Anyhow, Gabi is off at college now, and I miss her, and these burgers were quite tasty!
1 pound ground turkey
2 small carrots (or 1 large), grated
3 ramps (or scallions or onion or garlic, but the ramps are so delicious!), finely chopped
about 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
some freshly ground pepper, to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
Preheat a skillet covered with a small amount of olive oil, so the burgers don’t stick. Cook over medium heat until the burgers are cooked through.
