Lamb Burgers with Sauteed Onion and Garlicky Feta Sauce and Garlic- and Thyme-Tossed Fries are IN THE HOUSE!
It’s with a great deal of nostalgia that I present this recipe I created and photographed a couple of months ago. Because Lamb Burgers with Sauteed Onion and Garlicky Feta Sauce and Garlic- and Thyme-Tossed Fries are not literally in my house right now, as I work to heal a health issue that’s greatly restricted what I eat for the last month and counting. I don’t know when they’ll be allowed back in my house, but I’m hopeful it will be soon – and I’m more food obsessed than ever!
Lamb Burgers with Sauteed Onion and Garlicky Feta Sauce and Garlic- and Thyme-Tossed Fries are a good focus for my gastronomical obsessing. I mean, that luscious, dairy-filled sauce! Those flavorful red-meat burgers! Those herb-bedecked fries drenched in ketchup (I daydream about ketchup these days…no kidding)!
Spicy Avocado Turkey Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries, you are my new favorite! XOXOXO
Have you ever found yourself in a love affair with a food that you were previously all like “meh” about? That pretty much sums up my relationship with ground turkey. I once scoffed at it as a subpar substitute for ground beef and all its flavorful, red-meaty, fat-saturated goodness. Because I love to eat clean, but red meat and I are like this! My loyalty to it is fierce. We are bonded together in a Bonnie-and-Clyde-esque pact.
I could seriously be on the vegan+red-meat diet, if that were a thing. Just me, fruits, veggies, and a ribeye steak from an ethically-raised cow – YUMMM. Ground turkey wouldn’t have been invited to our island before my recent revelation.
Then I visited Detroit restaurant Central Kitchen and Bar (an experience highlighted in this post on my other blog, 100 Places in the D), where its blackened turkey burger invoked me. I mean, a turkey burger coated in blackening seasoning and topped with avocado, sweet peppers, and muenster cheese was not your typical humdrum turkey burger. I needed to keep an open mind and give ground turkey another try, right?
