If I was in America....

I usually try not to think, "If I was in America, I would...".  It is pointless.  I am not in America.  I am here.  But, if I was in America, I would so make this for dinner tonight!

The amazing hubs and I love meat!  Love it!  Meat is so expensive in Korea.  But if you live in America, stop in at Aldi, buy some ground turkey, and go to it.

These are the best "hamburgers" in my opinion.  Thank you Megan from Nebraska for creating this yumminess!

From Taste of Home website:
You'll get a burst of flavor with every bite of these hearty burgers. Not a fan of ground turkey? This recipe will absolutely change your mind! — Megan Crow, Lincoln, Nebraska

  1. Did we make these together??? With the sweet potatoes? Those were so good! I will make these in honor of you once we get all settled in our new place.

  2. I think so! I do remember the sweet potatoes, they were delicious. Just a little spicy, not too spicy. You should definitely make these. They are so yummy!

  3. I would like to testify that this burger, made by Alissa, is the best burger I have ever eaten.

  4. Thank you Daddio-in-law! I will FOREVER remember the first time I made this for you and Mommaboma. You both were so happy!
