tonight we’re eating an oldie but a goodie: turkey burgers, seasoned with thyme, garlic and worchestersire. The burgers were stuffed with bleu cheese, bacon and basil and dressed with roasted tomatoes, thinnly sliced zucchini, spinach and lemon vinegarette. Roasted baby zucchini accompanied the burgers.
Bacon and Bleu Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burger InnardsT: I don’t know why other burger joints can’t figure it out.
A: figure what out?
T: how to make a burger this good.
A: all they would have to do is season the damn meat and stuff it with goodness. the question really is just why places don’t do that!
T: ahh, well we are lucky you know the secret! so, how did you season the turkey?
A: i just used chopped fresh thyme, garlic, onions, worchesterchire, and S&P.
A: you know… the seasoning gods… Salt and Pepper
T: haha, duhhh. Did you use only turkey?
A: yup… i wanted to eat something that at least had a healthy base if I was gonna be adding bacon to the middle of it. I am a huge advocate of replacing beef with turkey!
T: yeah, me too. You can hardly tell it’s not beef!
A: i know. seasoning is really key. and stuffing.. i think maybe if it were just a large chunk of ground turkey you might notice more.. but….
T: yeah, all the bleu cheese… mmmm… levels the playing field. The baby zucchini was great too. Quite tasty.
A: i agree.. but it was over cooked. i prefer my zucchini to be crisp, this was no where near crisp.
T: no, not crisp. tasty, though. I rate the meal a 4.45/5. It would have gotten a higher score a month ago, but we’ve had so much good food lately
A: we have, except eating out. we ate that mega salty burger from chili’s and then i had the worst hamburger ever yesterday. i really needed a burger redemption. and this was it. I give this burger a 4.3/5. I would eat this again, and again, and again.
T: oh, damn. heheh I can’t imagine what that terrible burger from yesterday would have been rated. yeah, I just realized why we never have really low scores- when the food’s that bad we don’t bother blogging it.
A: that really is the truth. if i had to rate yesterday’s burger it would have received below a 1. i think it would have been like a 0.3/5 or something.
T: yeah. If I rated the enchiladas from yesterday they would have gotten a 1/5 probably. That’s being nice.
A: and you are so nice but as you said just a second ago, we just don’t blog nastiness.
T: no, we don’t. A food probably has to earn like a 2.5 or better to actually get blogged. Our scale could span from 2.5 to 5 instead of 0 to 5.
A: i mean.. if we took a pretty shot of some crappy food, maybe we could blog that. We did eat that really mediocre mediterranean food and blog about it.
T: yeah that’s true. heheh we also had that terrible fruit salad that looked so pretty!
A: yup, blogged that too.
T: We sure do spend a lot of our blog talking about our blog! That might be considered poor form!
A: oops! on to a new topic…
T: uhhh. So it sure has been warm lately.
A: hehehe not really… but Sweetnicks made a killer cobb panini that we will for sure be eating a version of soon.
T: oooh. I don’t even know what that is, I’ll have to go take a looksie.
A: everyone should.. at least if you’re as much a fool for sandwiches as i am.
T: yes, everyone should, but I’m not sure that means a whole lot. hahaha, I mean, everyone should know that tomatoes are not vegetables!
A: but unfortunately like… 3 people don’t.
T: heheh. well it’s never too late to learn. I couldn’t swallow pills until I was 16 years old, but look at me now! I swallow pills every day!
Kwaherini mabibi na mabwana!
