Teriyaki Turkey Burgers
Restaurants and good in eating in wenatchee were, uhm, grim. Maybe we got spoiled with downtown st.petersburg and tampa close by, but during our time in Washington, I can’t say that I found any restaurants that I absolutely loved.
One of our first weeks there, though, I had a teriyaki chicken sandwich that was pretty great…for Wenatchee at least (On a side note, although the restaurants weren’t what I’m used to, there was plenty to love about the valley).
So this week in my menu planning, I thought why not make a turkey burger the same way? The husband loves pineapple, and we have probably been eating nothing but chicken lately. Time to switch it up.
Ground Turkey-excellent source of protein, contains cancer protective selenium, good source of niacin and vitamin B6, and contains only half the amount of saturated fat found in beef.
Ginger-boosts immune function, aids in gastrointestinal digestion, and acts as an anti-inflammatory
Pineapple-aids in the digestion of protein, high in manganese and thiamin, good source of vitamin B
I love turkey burgers. They are simple, easy, and scrumptious. Plus the hubs is a burger freak
