Long Run PR and NEW Turkey Burger Recipe

Sunday started off rough, with an early wake up and an upset stomach.  It was my scheduled 5 mile long run, so I knew I needed to just get out there and do it!  The boys dropped me off at a trail and ran a couple errands while I ran.  It was pretty cold out for the first mile and a half, but then I just pushed myself!  I did not stop once…not to stretch, shake out my legs, or pee (I am known to do all three).  I ended up with a time of 49:46, which means a 9:55/mi!!  A PR for me, hooray!!!  I celebrated by making a yummy new recipe!!!

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, form into patties.  I was able to make 9 patties with my mixture.

These can be grilled or cooked in a frying pan.  I used a frying pan with PAM Extra Olive Oil for mine

and cooked them slowly on stove top temperature of 4.

I also roasted some bell peppers to use as a topping for the burger.  Easy Peasy, just roast in the oven at 400F for 10  minutes on each side

I served it up with a whole wheat bagel thin (lightly toasted) and some garlic flavored couscous (first time I EVER tried couscous)…

Overall, a very good meal!!!  The burgers were moist and VERY flavorful, something that usually lacks from my other turkey burgers!  These babies are a keeper!!!
