Friendsgiving

In honor of thanksgiving, my roommates and I decided to have “Friendsgiving”! We all pitched in and decided to make turkey burgers, green beans almondine, and mashed potatoes!!!!! Basically, it was the best meal ever. Healthy, easy, and delicious!

Turkey Burgers

For the turkey burgers, we got 1.5 lbs of ground turkey meat and seasoned it with some salt, pepper, and garlic salt. We even added some onions to it!

Here is the step-by-step process:

  1. Mix the ground turkey meat with the salt, pepper, and garlic salt. image-30
  2. Chop up onions and add them to the ground turkey meatimage-29
  3. Separate the meat, and make individual patties.image-21
  4. Grab a pan and heat up some olive oil and place the pattiesimage-14
  5. Flip over once you notice the meat is cooked.image-35
  6. The meat will be fully cooked when the inside is no longer pink!

Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are kind of tricky and a bit time consuming to make BUT they are delicious.

So here is the step-by-step process:

  1. Get your potatoes and begin to peel themimage-23
