Thanksgiving is around the corner and it is another time for tasty turkey recipes. I had wondered why is it that turkey is a common recipes during thanksgiving day. Maybe someone here can give me the answer.

Anyway, thanksgiving day is a day that is known for much eating than for much thanksgiving. If our founding fathers that started it all were here, I do not think they would have allowed us to focus on more eating, feasting than thanking God for the discovery of a free and independent nation like United States of America.

I think enough of my sermon and let me take you through how to make tasty fried turkey burgers this thanksgiving.
