I am so terrible at these homemade things that include making your own dough! It seems to always end up being a huge disaster, and my whole kitchen looks like a bomb went off. But recently I tried this recipe and it is true to its name (quick and easy) and they were so yummy! My toddler had a great time helping me, and I will definitely be doing them again soon. I wanted to pass on the recipe to my followers, which I found on this adorable blog GIMMESOMEOVEN along with lots of even more delicious looking recipes.

A Chef's Bold Creations
Do you love greens? Well I do not. Ha! But really, I have the hardest time with eating my veggies. Don't get me wrong, I love to eat healthy and there are plenty of yummy options but salad is just too boring. At least that was the case until I found this fantastic little book at my local Chapters.
The Chef who created this book owns a bunch of salad boutiques in San Francisco, California and it very clear once you turn these beautiful pages that he really knows his greens. But fear not, meat lovers!! There are plenty of great options for you as well in this book.
If i can make something beautiful, healthy and delicious from this book then you most definitely can too! You can find Mixt Salads on Amazon, or at your local bookstore.
Are you tired of the same old hamburger, or wanting something besides red meat? Try this out for size!! Delicious, quick, healthy, and no red meat involved. :)
7 oz. plain greek yogurt $2.98
1 medium fresh lemon $0.32
¼ tsp minced garlic $0.04
¼ tsp dried dill $0.02
1.25 lb. ground turkey $4.78
6 halves sun dried tomatoes $0.66
1 medium red onion $1.04
2 oz. frozen spinach $0.27
¼ cup crumbled feta $0.41
1 tsp dried oregano $0.05
½ tsp minced garlic $0.04
⅓ cup bread crumbs $0.11
1 lg. egg $0.12
1 med. cucumber $0.50
6 hamburger buns $1.64
to taste salt and pepper $0.05
Prepare the yogurt sauce by combining the yogurt, ¼ tsp minced garlic, dry dill, juice of half the lemon and a dash of salt. Stir everything to combine and then refrigerate to allow the flavors to blend while you make the burgers.
Thaw the frozen spinach and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Roughly chop the spinach to prevent long stringy pieces. Also chop the sun dried tomatoes and ¼ of the red onion.
In a bowl combine the ground turkey with the spinach, sun dried tomatoes, red onion, feta, ½ tsp minced garlic, dried oregano, egg, bread crumbs, ½ tsp of salt and some freshly ground pepper. Stir everything until it is evenly combined. Shape the mixture into six patties.
Cook the burgers on a counter top grill, a non-stick skillet or over open flame. Spread the yogurt sauce on both sides of a bun, add a warm burger and top with thin slices of red onion and cucumber.

Don't you mean Ketchup?
No, I mean Fry Sauce. If you have never tried this amazing little dip, you probably haven't been to Utah. Any fast food place, or sit down restaurant that serves fries will have the option for a "fry sauce" with your order. It is something I have grown up on, and crave every time I settle down to a basket of fries. I decided to make this my first post because of all the strange food items to come out of Utah (see lime cabbage jello, funeral potatoes, or frog's eye salad) this is by far the most delicious!
