So I'm pregnant (perhaps too much information)and among the persistent cravings I have ben experiencing is turkey burger(s). I am in the SFV but am willing to travel as far as Downtown, Culver City, Venice etc. for a good one. Favorites?
Riffing off the flavor of a Greek gyro, these turkey burgers cook up fast in a cast-iron skillet or grill pan. Lemony, olive-studded yogurt sauce adds more Middle Eastern–inspired flavor and is a tasty alternative to ketchup and mustard.
Since turkey is a blank canvas, the spices and level of salt can make or break the taste of the final burger. Here, chili powder adds tons of flavor, since it’s a blend of different spices including garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried chilis.
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
