My photos don’t often turn out how I want them to. I suppose it’s because, well, I’m not actually a professional (obviously) and because I’m still learning.
Some days my photos turn out better than I expected them to, other days they look worse than photos I took over a year ago. The quality seems to ebb and flow, much like my life. Often, I’ll remake a recipe to reshoot it in hopes of a better outcome. I did it with the apple cider butternut squash mac and cheese and so many other recipes on the site and there’s a lot more I wished I had re-shot. We don’t always get it right. But we get up the next day and try again.
These everything bagel turkey burgers are definitely one of those recipes that I wanted to re-make and re-shoot. The problem? The reason I didn’t? Time my friends. I’m busy gearing up for fall and making a recipe for the 4th time simply because I didn’t like the picture just isn’t in the time budget. If it were an issue of flavor, I would absolutely do it. But guys, these burgers are perfect. Really, really perfect. So even if the photos aren’t, the recipe is going up.
I’ve been obsessed with Trader Joe’s everything but the bagel seasoning for like, a month and a half. Or so. Something like that. But I’ve been putting it in scrambled eggs almost every single morning.
I have my coffee, a big ol’ hunk of baked oatmeal (lately it’s either been chocolate chunk banana or pumpkin) and side of everything bagel scrambled eggs. It’s incredibly satisfying and filling and I don’t have any plans of changing my morning routine anytime soon.
BUT I love the seasoning so much that I wanted to incorporate it in to more meals and after falling in love with my basil and goat cheese turkey burgers, I knew I needed to try my hand at everything bagel turkey burgers.
Literally you cannot go wrong adding that seasoning to anything savory.
I added in some shredded zucchini for extra juiciness and, honestly, to use up the overabundance in my fridge, and they were perfection.
We’re off on a semi-long drive through farm country to explore some small towns, hit up a local cidery, walk through beautiful green spaces, check out cute little markets and eat some good food.
Aka we’re doing summer right.
