Delicious tur-key burgers

On the ev-ery-day home will be featuring easy and delicious recipes. This is one of my favorite weeknight recipes.


1 1/4 pound 93 lean ground turkey 

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1/2 ground black pepper 

2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil

  1. 1. Transfer ground meat to medium bowl. Stir in salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, ricotta cheese, and mustard until blended, and divide meat into 4 portions. Lightly toss one portion from hand to hand to form a ball, then lightly flatten ball with fingertips into 1-inch-thick patty. Repeat with remaining portions.
  2. 2. Heat a large, heavy skillet (preferably cast-iron or stainless steel with an aluminum core) over medium heat until very hot, 4 to 5 minutes. Swirl oil in pan to coat bottom, then add burgers. Cook over medium heat without moving burgers until bottom side of each is dark brown and crusted, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn burgers over; continue to cook until bottom side is light brown but not yet crusted, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Reduce heat to low, position cover slightly ajar on pan to allow steam to escape, and continue to cook 8 to 10 minutes longer, flipping burgers if necessary to promote deep browning, until center is completely cooked, or an instant-read thermometer inserted from the side of the burger into the center registers 160 degrees. Remove from pan and serve immediately.

the purpose

The purpose of everyday home is to feature homes of everyday people. Recently I was standing in line flipping through decorating magazines and was struck by the idea that there needs to be a place to feature homes of people who are not millionaires. Often, and by often I mean all the time we look through magazines, websites, and even Pinterest to find ideas and inspiration but we are met with the MOST interesting homes, architectural details, and the most expensive furniture. Now, I do not know about you my friends, but I do not live in the most interesting home nor have thousands of dollars to spend on furniture. I want to be inspired by my friends and friends of friends homes. I want to be inspired by things that are actually attainable.

I need your help though, I want to feature homes, rooms, ideas that come from you. Does not matter if you own your own home or rent, it can be one space or your whole house. If you or know of someones house that would be a good feature for everyday home please contact me.

Be inspired

The ev-ery-day home.
