Sunday Food Shopping Inspiration

I usually dread going to the supermarket, but this week I'm actually kind of excited to stock up the cart thanks to a new cookbook my aunt Marla just sent me. It's called Great Fast Food, by our favorite domestic diva Martha Stewart. The beauty of this book is that the recipes are simple but sound gourmet, they don't involve a ton of ingredients ... or ingredients you can't pronounce. Plus, the prep for all meals, sides, salads and desserts takes no time, so it's easy to whip any of the 250 options up after work.

I thought I would share a recipe from the book to give you guys some Sunday food shopping inspiration:

Favorite Turkey Burger


1 1/2 pounds ground turkey (93 percent lean)
1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere cheese
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
Coarse salt and ground pepper

1. Heat grill to high. In a medium bowl, use a fork to gently combine ground turkey with Gruyere, scallions, breadcrumbs, mustard, and garlic; season generously with salt and pepper. Gently form mixture into four 1-inch-thick patties.
2. Lightly oil grill. Place patties on hottest part of grill; sear until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Move patties to cooler part of grill; continue grilling until cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes per side.

Bon appetit gals!
