Turkey Burger

July 14, 2015


Here is the ultimate burger to pair with my homemade burger buns. Constructed with ingredients grown straight from our garden, excluding the turkey of course, this towering, hunger satisfying giant can take on those beef burgers any day.


Sitting atop a feta cheese & mayo base, served with the entire garden right on top, this burger is an explosion of fantastic earthy vibes.
