I often make turkey meatballs for spaghetti which I flavor with garlic, fennel seed and crushed red pepper for a "sausage" like taste. I took that same mixture, formed patties and took them to the grill. Topped with cheese and some peperonata, it makes for a great burger! —inpatskitchen
For the turkey burgers
ground turkey (I used a 90/10 mix)
teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes (optional or use less if you like)
granulated garlic or garlic powder
fennel seeds, crushed a bit
unseasoned panko crumbs
For the peperonata and putting it all together
bell peppers (red, yellow or orange or a combination)
I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
