Sriracha Turkey Burgers

As you are aware, I have been testing different Home Delivery Meal Services, so I was super excited to see which yummy recipes would be included in this week’s box. So, when my Hello Fresh meal box arrived and I saw the recipe titled “Sriracha Turkey Burgers” my mouth-watered. I absolutely love anything with a little heat added to it! And to think, it was going to be included in one of America’s most sort after food items, BURGERS! I’m the type of burger person who enjoys some sort of smoked gooey cheeses and fresh herbs incorporated in my “gourmet” burgers but this meal was simple, quick, easy and perfect!
