Where else can you read a food blog and get a geography lesson too? In this case it is a review of longitude and latitude. The former is the angular distance of a place east or west of the meridian at Greenwich, England. The latter is an angular distance of a place north or south of the earth’s equator. Changes in latitude(s) were also made famous by Jimmy Buffet and were blogged about here recently with a dish from Latin America – which is a big change in latitude from New England. Today’s blog features an Asian influenced dish – which (cue the drum roll) is a big change in longitude from here.
Whew…that is a long introduction to a blog about turkey burgers.
As readers of the blog know we eat of fair amount of ground turkey, using it in hamburgers and meatloaf as an alternative to ground beef. The Turkey Burger recipe I used the other day was from Eating Well, which has been one of my favorite sites when I want to make sure I am preparing something on the healthy side. In addition to being healthy, have to say these were among the tastiest burgers I’ve ever made. The Hoisin sauce gives these burgers a nice sweet bite, while ginger and garlic provide a burst of flavor, and water chestnuts add a nice crunch. As an added benefit they were amazing light…seems like you needed two hands to hold them down and keep them from floating away!
If you are looking for an alternative to your plain old hamburger this is one we highly recommend.
P.S. This blog has nothing to do with the website changesinlongitude.com, but it just goes to show you that for just about anything you can think of there is a domain already by that name!
