Turkey Burger


1/2 pound ground turkey
1 egg
1/4 cup oatmeal
1 tsp season salt
1 tsp olive oil


Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Form patties and brown both sides in a skillet (I use pam non-stick spray in the skillet). They need browned because the patties are to soft to put directly on the grill. Once brown, move them to the grill. Be careful not to turn them too much for they will break apart. This recipe yields two nice size burgers. Keep in mind that my measurements are “more or less”… you may find that you want more or less of any of them.

The turkey burgers do great in the George Forman style grill too. In fact if you prefer your burgers a little thinner that is the way to go. It’s difficult to make a thin patty on the outdoor grill because the turkey patties don’t hold together like beef does.

Thanks to the group of young women that offered to take this photo of our family. I don’t know who you are, but this picture is special to me. Thanks!

Our family hiked up to the Crystal Cave at Garner State Park in Texas. The hike was a challenge due to our crew consisting of seven people and three dogs… but we made it! The cave itself wasn’t super spectacular, but the hike is a valuable memory.

I wish I was better about blogging

I have so many times when I wish I would have taken the time to blog something when it was fresh on my mine. My grandfather kept a journal pretty much his whole life. I think that is pretty cool. It’s not always for others to love and appreciate your wit and intelligence, but sometimes just a nice way to reflect on your own life. It also gives the kids a way to see into the mind and life of a parent or grandparent.

…maybe I’ll do better.
