Freezer Turkey Burgers or Fish?


I love being able to grill a wholesome turkey burger indoors. It’s even better when the prep work has been done weeks ago and all I have to do is smell it while it cooks. I always make a fresh salad that will last us 3-4 days at a time. I’ll vary it up with various greens like spinach, kale or cabbage, fresh fruit, seasonal vegetables, dried fruit, nuts or different kinds of cheese. I like to make it different so I never get tired of salad. This is a simple side for my husband and I because my kiddos aren’t fans. It doesn’t mean I don’t hide the greens in the burgers, though. IMG_2782Several weeks ago I froze two batches of Several weeks ago I froze two batches of turkey ranch cheddar burgers and pressed them into a $1 patty press from the dollar store.

We love freezer meals around here.

Speaking of love, my husband and son love kayak fishing and they just made it Kayak Angler Fishing online.
