No, I did not eat the pictured burger and rings. But the picture amused me.
The turkey burgers were really yummy- you never know about replacing beef with turkey, but these were moist and filling. The onion rings were fine, I prefer the taste of Ellie Krieger’s version using crushed baked potatoes chips instead of breadcrumbs, but these were easier to make.
