Trust me, I know the feeling of being so exhausted at the end of a long day that you don’t feel like cooking! But I promise there is no need to swing through the drive-thru on busy nights when you can get a delicious dinner using real ingredients on the table in less than 30 minutes! Even though I try to use my slow cooker several nights a week there are days when it just doesn’t happen. And sometimes we are just in the mood for something different! I like to keep a few quick and easy dinners on hand for those days because I sure feel better about things when I make dinner at home.
These turkey burgers are super simple to prepare and can even be assembled ahead of time. Throw them on the grill (indoor or out!) and it doesn’t take long at all. Serve it up with a little make ahead corn and tomato salad… and I can’t forget my favorite part of the whole meal! Onion rings! I mean can you even have burgers without onion rings?! Since it’s not likely I’m going to have time or energy to cut, hand dip and bake or fry them from scratch anytime soon my go to are these Alexia Onion Rings with Panko Breading and Sea Salt. One of my favorite treats and most likely way better than anything I could make! And on the table in no time.
Just arrange your onion rings on the cookie sheet and get them going in the oven. Toss the burgers on your preheated grill and while all that’s cooking you can whip up the three ingredient campfire sauce!
Serve it all up with the simple corn and tomato salad that you could easily make a day or two before and dinner is done! It’s that easy! With the help of Alexia Foods you can have a family favorite balanced dinner you can be proud to serve!
