30 Minute Meal : Turkey Burgers

Tried my first intentional 30-minute meal last night, and it went pretty well. Stopped at the store after my workout and stocked up (we were out of a lot of stuff), and did some impromptu menu planning at the same time. I ended up with:

- Grilled turkey burger
- Roasted rosemary potatoes (red)
- Spinach salad with fresh grape tomatoes from my garden

Not bad at all. Instructions below:

1. Put a couple of cups of water in a pan and start it boiling.
2. Preheat oven to 400.
3. Light the grill and let it heat.
4. Quarter the potatoes, and add to pot once it boils. Set timer for 10 minutes.
5. Put ground turkey in a bowl.
6. Dice half an onion and add to bowl.
7. Select favorite meat seasoning(s), add to bowl.
8. Squish it all together, then form patties.
9. Once the timer goes off, drain the potatoes, then toss in a bowl with some olive oil and rosemary.
10. Place potatoes on baking sheet, put in oven. Set timer for 16 minutes.
11. Place patties on grill. Turn every four minutes.
12. When timer goes off, remove potatoes from oven, then patties from grill.

And, voila, you've got a pretty quick and easy dinner, and you can expand the servings from 1 to 4 without changing the overall cook time.
