Ever notice that if you are just listening to the Food Network it could easily be mistaken for a soft core porn? I turn the channel on at work. It’s not what my average customer expects to see when they walk in, but I don’t have to pay attention to it and I get more work done. If a sitcom is on, even one I hate, I feel like I may miss something, so I pay way to much attention to the tube. With Food Network, if they are cooking something I’m interested in, I can Google it later.

But when you’re working, and not watching, some things easily get taken out of context when they do get your attention. Paula’s constant moaning can be a little awkward if you really don’t know why she’s in pajamas with Amy Sedaris. Rachael Ray said “smells like toasted nuts” the other day and I totally lol’d. The Neelys might as well be making out. And God knows, if the camera isn’t aimed to flatter Giada’s already blessed figure, her comments really make it. “It’s penetrating my nose” = easily my hands down favorite.

Don’t get my wrong, I LOVE the Food Network, and all the hosts I mentioned above. But take things out of context for a few minutes and it can be a truly inappropriate giggle fest.

Grilled turkey burgers are nothing to giggle about, but they are definitely something to drool over. I mean seriously. How could you not drool over a spicy grilled turkey patty topped with bacon and cheese and some crispy onion slices?

Cajun Grilled Turkey Burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 buns
  • 4 pieces of cooked bacon
  • 4 pieces of cheese
  • condiments and other toppings ( like onions, you hater 😛 ) of your choosing.

Instructions

Mash the turkey, hot sauce, seasoning and pepper together and grill for 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Go ahead, be fancy and toast the buns while your at it.

Really, why don’t more people cook at home? This took less then 10 minutes to make – including cook time (on the panini / grill press my boss got me for Xmas – maybe a few minutes longer on the outdoor grill) and they were delicious!

The BF asked what it was, to which I replied “burgers” and he continued by stealing mine while running out the door. At least he said it was “good” and the” doneness was nice” for an indoor grill before he left. Not once did he put his nose in the air because it was turkey. Win!
