I don’t watch much television, and I certainly don’t watch many cartoons, but I am in love with Bob’s Burgers. For the uninitiated, it’s a cartoon sitcom about the quirky Belcher family who owns a hamburger restaurant. The kids are always getting into shenanigans, and for that matter, so are the parents.
One of my favorite things about the show is the running gags that repeat in each episode, including the chalk board at the restaurant that states the burger or the day. Some of the highlights include the “Let’s Give ’Em Something Shiitake ‘Bout Burger” and the “Three Beets To The Wind Burger.”
To celebrate the beginning of grilling season, I decided to create my take on Bob’s “Good Night and Good Leek Burger.” I started with Jennie-O Original Turkey Burgers. These ready-to-cook turkey burger patties can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store. With 50% less fat than USDA data for regular ground beef, they’re an all-natural, better choice for your family.
I wanted to keep the garnishes to a minimum so that the flavor of the turkey burger could really shine through. I topped each burger with a small pile of sauteed leeks, and a dollop of mayonnaise flavored with capers, lemon, Parmesan cheese and paprika. I hope the Belcher family would be proud of this recipe!
