There are certain dates and places that will forever be etched in my mind. September 28, 2018, Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant in Lahaini, Hawaii- This was date and location of the last time I ordered and ate a hamburger. 🍔 My husband was so shocked that I ordered a burger, I thought he was going to fall off his chair.
My family's reaction to me eating a hamburger was hilarious. You would have thought that I was eating something way more extravagant or unusual than a patty of ground beef with white bread and ketchup.
The truth is that I've never felt deprived by not eating hamburgers. Please don't judge me but beef burgers really just aren't my thing. All ground beef falls into that category really. I'm not a fan.
A turkey burger is a whole different organism though. I have no rational explanation for why I love ground turkey but not ground beef. A thick, juicy turkey burger piled high with pickles and condiments is just about the most perfect summer meal for me. This turkey burger recipe is amazing AND you can make them even when the weather isn't ideal for grilling. ⛈

It doesn't happen very often but this beautiful picture plate was all mine on turkey burger night. I gobbled up this scrumptious burger with the eagerness of a donkey who's been given a corn cob. 😂
