Just a Hunka Hunka Burger Love

Presenting...LOVE Burgers!

Made these just to be sweet to the husband guy on Saturday night...he's training for another competition at the end of March so that means he's on a high protein, almost no fat and high carb diet right now that which means something decadent and sweet won't really win his heart. He's never a big sweet/pastry/baked goods kind of person anyway so I have to find other ways to show him I love him through food.

Nothing really to these babies-just ground turkey a little seasoned salt, onion powder and a couple of small dashes of cinnamon and Worcestershire sauce. Served with a little Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce on the side. These would have been lovely with some caramelized onion and Swiss but like I mentioned earlier we were going with HEALTHY and LOW FAT.

I put some parchment paper down on the counter and patted the seasoned ground turkey into a rectangle that was about and inch thick and used a big heart shaped cookie cutter to cut the meat into heart shaped patties.

I also used my broiler pan and baked them in the oven so that any fat would cook out and off the burgers.

The season salt and cinnamon adds a slight sweet taste to the burgers.

Anyway, its kind of silly but the little extra touch, which didn't take anymore time than a burger would normally take to make was much appreciated by the husband guy. Just a nice little non traditional way to let my meat loving man know I love him.

You are so creative!! Even your blog title is great. What a sweet thing you did for him :-). It looks reaaaaally good and I'm not even a big fan of meat. This gives me an idea of what to do for dear hubby, who does love meat.
