The Big Green Egg Rules

The Big Green Egg Rules

My entire family, including a 4 year old enjoyed this reciepe. We did make a couple of changes, the green chilies were grilled and placed on top and we used a spicy pepper jack cheese. The cummin and chili powder really came through (maybe becuase my 1/2 teaspoon measuring is by sight and very liberal, the burgers were quite moist and the oats added to the texture. We will make these agian very soon



This is an amazing tasting turkey burger!I don't think I'm ever going to eat a beef burger again! And definitely not a plain one!!! Thank you!
