The warmer spring weather is on the rise here in Texas and that can only bring one thought to my mind- backyard grilling! I love to grill.. and there is nothing like a grilled burger or hot dog and a big ‘ol bowl of watermelon sitting on a lounge chair in my bathing suit with sopping wet hair and rosey sunburned cheeks.
Someone reel me back from 1990 when I was just 6 years old. It has probably been since then that I actually had a hotdog- but this time of year brings about great memories from not only my child hood, but even since last summer!
The smell of that fired up grill makes my belly jump for joy with excitement. On the day I actually made these burgers it was raining.. so we took the grillin’ par-tay inside and fired them up on my griddle top, cooking just about 4-5 minutes on each side. Rain never stops me from cookin’ up a good burger!
Now, I probably wouldn’t have chosen to eat ‘fruit salsa’ on my burger when I was 6.. but the six-year-olds of 2013 are totally up for anything. They have advanced taste palletes, I suppose.
The mango salsa totally takes this turkey burger to the next level, so don’t skip it. If you can’t find a ripe mango just yet, sub out with pineapple.
Oh, yummy. That would be delicious.
