Banh Mi Turkey Burgers

 

Banh Mi Turkey BurgersWe all get comfortable with our normal, or I know I do. My normal was a handful of dinner meals that I made on a routine basis. They are easy, need no recipe, and I always know my family will enjoy them. Finding new, healthy recipes can sometimes be a challenge. Not because I have little kids to please, but because Greg is so hard to please.

I had never heard of this burger until I was researching recipes. With the ingredient list, I knew it would was something we would enjoy, and it did not disappoint! We ate our burgers in lettuce wraps, but a whole wheat bun or English muffin would be a nice addition. The turkey burgers themselves have a ton of flavor, the pickled vegetables add a fantastic component, then top that off with the mild heat of the sriracha sauce, and it is terrific! This burger will most definitely be part of my new normal!
