I made a farking turkey burger for a throwdown entry last week, and was totally caught off guard when I actually liked it -- a lot. I never saw that coming.
I love good food surprises. I love that "wow, I didn't see that coming" moment when you eat something you didn't think you would like, but once you eat it, you do like it.
I just wonder how many brethren see food as a never ending adventure. I hope I never stop discovering new things to eat.
I hear you on that...I used to think 'turkey' and 'burger' could not coexist in the same sentence...or meal. But my neighbor made me think differently. He's the turkey burger king. Well, he was until I found a way to make turkey burgers that I actually 'crave'. I've challenged him to a throwdown...he's accepted...date to be determined...but I will win
