A Tribute to the Food of the Month – Aaron’s Favorite Turkey Burgers

My brother-in-law shares the same love for cooking as I do and this year for my birthday he sent me his favorite turkey burger recipe for June’s Food of the Month. It was such a thoughtful gift and I was very excited to make this recipe since olives and feta cheese are right up my alley.
I made the burgers this Thursday when our friends Jena and Ryan came over for dinner. Although it’s a big statement I can say they are the best homemade turkey burger I have ever made; and believe me I’ve made a lot. He also sent me a great recipe for homemade french fries which was ironic since at work I just talked about satisfying cravings, specifically french fries, in a healthy way. If you’ve been craving a burger and fries try making them at home with healthier ingredients. Not only will you save money but you’ll save fat and your arteries as well!

 Oven Fries



  • Two pounds unpeeled russet potatoes cut into 1/2 inch sticks
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp cracked coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Course salt
  • I also added some fresh rosemary, chopped


Toss ingredients in a large bowl and bake at 450 degrees for 40-50 minutes (or until crispy).
