Turkey Veggie Burgers

After eating this turkey veggie burger for dinner, Hubby instantly asked if I would make 100 more. This is coming from a guy who swore he’d never enjoy a turkey burger as much as a beef burger. They’re that good. The shredded veggies keep the burgers extra moist just like they do in muffins and quick breads.

We had some purple carrots from our CSA box, which resulted in a very colorful turkey veggie burger. I got six burgers from the recipe and we ate leftovers in our lunches for a couple days. Then a couple days later, Hubby made another batch for us.

    I am also a big fan of quiche but never think to make it because the crust is usually a few too many calories for lunch. Love this recipe – definitely will have to attempt this at home!

      The crust def isn’t worth the calories or the effort in my book.

    We love quiche, and eat it quite often! I think it’s a great “clean out the fridge” meal that is suitable for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! I will say though, I usually make mine with a crust, but NEVER a homemade crust. I just don’t have time, nor skill, for that. I love using whole wheat crusts, or the deep-dish crusts. I’m a carboholic, so the crust is a must! (if I don’t have a crust, I just make frittata.)

      Crust is a must! Love it.

      I guess there’s really no difference between a frittata and a crust-less quiche… just how they’re cooked? I agree though – they’re great for cleaning out the fridge.

      We don’t eat many carbs in our house. I don’t want to go as far as saying gluten intolerant, but I’ve never been able to digest starches that well…
