Maureen: I absolutely agree. I had forgotten about this recipe until you reminded me. This is the second time that’s happened with this cookbook. It’s perfect for a summer night. It didn’t take too long to prepare, and it’s great with all the fresh vegetables on the side.
Andrew (14): Where’s the bread? Or the rolls? If they’re turkey burgers, they should have rolls, right?
Maureen: Funny you should ask that. Your father and I had exactly the same discussion in the aisles of Waitrose, but he said we didn’t have to get rolls because there wasn’t one in the pictures. Then as I was making it, he offered to make pita bread or flat bread, but I said, no, it was too late for bread.
Andrew: It’s great, but I think it needs bread.
Maureen: I’m not sure bread is an absolute necessity, but some pita would be nice the next time we make it. What do you think Nicholas?
Nicholas (11): They’re good.
Tim: These are my favourite turkey burgers, by far.
Maureen: Kirstin is a big fan of the ones by Gwyneth Paltrow from “It’s All Good,” but I think these are aces.
Tim: We also get to use some more sumac. This is good, since we have such a surplus of it in the house.
Maureen: The soured cream and sumac sauce is also good for dipping in all the crudites we’ve got on the table. Though I don’t think the boys agree.
Andrew: I’m not as sure about the sumac sauce, but I love the burgers. I’m going to have another.
Maureen: Another hungry teenager satisfied. I call that a result.
