Oat n' Turkey Burgers

The other night I was making turkey burgers in my kitchen and I glanced over at my “Steel Cut Oats” and thought…hmmm, let’s throw these guys into the recipe and experiment!

    Adding oats is such a good idea – it adds different nutrients, I bet it lightens the burgers a bit, and the meat (which is more expensive) goes further than regular turkey burgers would. Is there anything oats can’t do! ;-)
