During the summer we always love to grill and have a barbecue outside. I love taking advantage of the nice weather and eating and making the food outside. One of the things we frequently like to grill for dinner are burgers. I do not eat red meat, so we always like to make turkey burgers. When my husband and I met, he was sad that I didn’t like burgers. He convinced me to try turkey meat instead so that he could have a burger, and we have been making turkey burgers ever since. We also use ground turkey meat in a lot of our dinners instead of using beef.
Our favorite brand of ground turkey and turkey products that we always use is Shady Brook Farms. I really like the quality of the meat. My favorite things about cooking with turkey meat is that it is healthier than other meats. Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms turkey is a more healthier option than other proteins. It offers more protein than beef, fewer calories than chicken, and less fat than pork. Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms not only make ground turkey, but also brats, tenderloins, and frozen turkey burgers. Turkey is a flavorful alternative to other proteins that is great for grilling. When cooking, make sure that the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. I really like the taste of the turkey and love using it to make a delicious dinner on the grill.
The other night we decided to make turkey burgers and have a little barbecue outside since it was so nice out. We made these delicious Bacon Barbecue Cheddar Turkey Burgers. They were seriously one of the best turkey burgers we ever made and I can’t wait to make them again. We made the turkey burgers using Shady Brook Farms ground turkey meat. We then stuffed the burger with cheddar cheese. On the top of the burger, we put tomato, bacon, french fried onions, and barbecue sauce. This is a great burger for summer grilling and the turkey meat makes the burger so flavorful as does the other toppings. We all devoured these delicious burgers and cannot wait to make them again!
