Sometimes you just need a burger and fries

I always try to eat healthy, but every once and a while you just need a good burger and fries.
Scott and I have been perfecting this meal for the last year. We first made it back when we were dating.
It is one of my favorite meals that we consistently make together. 
There is no real recipe to our Juicy Turkey Burger.

1. Take 1 package of ground turkey, mix in about a 1/4 C A1 sauce and 1/4 C bread crumbs.
2. Form patties and grill them until golden brown on both sides (Scott is the grill master, I think he adds garlic salt and lemon pepper to the patties as he grills them) you can melt some cheese on them if you fancy.
3. We wrap them in lettuce instead of using buns to make them even healthier and we like them that way. But if you’re a bun lover, by all means, eat them with buns!
P.S. we LOVE our Cuisinart 5-in-1 griddler. It’s like a George Foreman on Steroids. 
Our turkey burgers wouldn’t be half as good without Alexia sweet potato fries. 
They are seriously THE BEST!
We season ours with pepper and salt before cooking them. The secret is broiling them for 5-7 minutes at the end of their cooking time so that they get crispy. 
There you have it, our favorite turkey burger and sweet potato fries!
And now, for the winner of the Triangle Statement Necklace….
