Nine year old boys.  They are the best.  Still young enough to want love and snuggles from their Mom, yet old enough to be responsible and self-managing.  Well…..most of the time…

My responsible nine year old thought it was a great idea to bounce rocks off the trampoline.  He is lucky I love him because this is the same kid who two weeks earlier, shattered my antique etched window in the front door.

When I placed this burger in front of the above mentioned nine year old, his exact words were “Disgusting!!!”  He then proceeded to devour it in less than three minutes and eat another.

I created this recipe on my own and if there had been more, I would have eaten more than the one and a half I finished off.  They will be making a reappearance very soon and I will increase the recipe because there was a lot of clammering for more!

Homemade turkey burgers slathered in yummy BBQ sauce then topped with from scratch coleslaw.

  • Yield: 6 burgers 1x




  • 2 lb ground turkey or chicken
  • 1/4 C BBQ sauce
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 Tb worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper


  • 1 bag coleslaw
  • 1/2 C mayonnaise (not miracle whip)
  • 2 Tb white vinegar
  • 2 Tb sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • generous grinds of black pepper


  1. Mix together coleslaw ingredients and allow to sit in the fridge for about an hour so the cabbage will wilt in the dressing.
  2. Heat your grill to medium-low.  Mix together all the burger ingredients with your hands until well combined.  Form into six equal patties.  Grill for 6 minutes on each side, brushing with additional BBQ sauce as they cook.
  3. Serve on your favorite hamburger bun with a generous heap of slaw on top!  My kids liked extra BBQ sauce on the side to dip into.

I think we need a room with no windows for a while.
