Organic Turkey Burgers (2 Different Ways) with Cheesy Bacon Fries

 
Weekends usually mark the beginning of my cooking vacation.  My time off from the kitchen usually lasts until Sunday – at the most.  But sometimes I have to pull out the pots and pans –or in this case the electric griddle – to give the family what they really have a taste for. This weekend it’s turkey burgers. If you are a beef lover, please don't sleep on the turkey burger.  I know, I know... I too am always hard pressed to find a good turkey burger.  Even though there are now restaurants where you can find a turkey burger, I can’t think of one I’d actually want to get in my car, wait for an available table and spend money on.  Restaurant turkey burgers, to me, are usually dry and tasteless - but I'm not having that in my kitchen. 
We waiver a bit off of the healthy path on the weekend, fried foods are in and green foods are scarce.   Thus cheesy, bacon fries were a perfect pair for these turkey burgers.

Once done set buns, onions and mushrooms aside.
 
Butter electric griddle or pan and place seasoned turkey patties on electric griddle.  Avoid the temptation to press on burgers with spatula.  Grill 6-7 minutes on each side.

Begin to dress your buttered, toasted bun with condiments of choice.  We mostly stick to mayonnaise and mustard – ketchup is held off until the end.
