Eggology Egg White Recipe of the Day: Turkey Burgers

This weekend we are taking our family summer "staycation". With gas prices being so high, who can afford to take a road trip or fly to another state just for a vacation? Instead we are spending our vacation in our own backyard, almost literally. We are heading about 10 miles north of our city to go "camping". Well, okay, it's in the semi-wilderness, right across from a beach, and we are staying in a cabin with full bathroom and mini-kitchenette. But still, we will be cooking our own food. And nothing's better than an awesome burger after a long day of, err, "wilderness". So I cooked these up in advance and am taking them with us because they are great served hot or cold. In this way, I'll have one meal taken care of and I won't even have to lift a finger. Sounds like my type of staycation! Enjoy!

Tantalizing Turkey Burger
