A huge discovery for me when I was stationed in Morocco, working for GREEK LINE: The use of ostrich and turkey meat was very much on the forefront of all restaurants where even restaurant chains, European or American, decided to add the bird meats to their menus in different applications. I decided to try, for the first time, to make a turkey-ostrich burger and, voila, everybody thought it was even better than the standard beef versions. Here it is!
A whole mess of Tex Mex flavors go into these flavorful burgers for the grill.
Believe it or not, some burgers are meant to be eaten with a knife and fork. One of my favorites is that way - this one! It's a grilled burger served open-faced and slathered with a good helping of chili that's homemade especially for this application. It takes a little effort to put it all together, but nothing about it is difficult...and it is soooo worth it! Serve with an ice-cold beer and a little greenery on the side.
