Recipe

I am normally a bit of a burger snob. When I am going to have one, I want it to be the real thing usually loaded with cheese, bacon, some yummy sauce, maybe a couple slices of avocado; and living in LA I am spoiled. There are amazing burgers all over the city that I usually try to reserve for special occasions. But recently I decided to give the traditional turkey burger another shot and have to admit was pretty surprised by the results. Juicy with a good amount of spice, this Asian Turkey burger made a perfect meal. I wrapped mine up in lettuce with a good dollop of Sriracha yogurt sauce and some fresh cabbage. It made the perfect little lunch.
