Daniel will tell you himself that years ago, he was a much less adventurous eater. When we met, he claimed to not like sour cream. I was in disbelief and forced him to put a huge spoonful on the nachos we were eating. Immediately, he realized how wrong he was. These days, it’s one of his favorite condiments. We always have a container of sour cream in the fridge, and when we sit down to dinner Daniel usually puts a few dashes of hot sauce and then a spoonful of sour cream on his meat or veggies.
Most of our experience with sour cream has been as a condiment or sauce (oooor as the secret ingredient in a very special chocolate cake recipe!). But now I realize it’s even more versatile and can be used in so many of the weeknight meals I make all the time.
Take these Greek turkey burgers, for one: I decided to add Hood Sour Cream to the mix not only because I knew it would add a deliciously creamy flavor, but also because sour cream would help prevent the burgers from drying out (a common problem with lean ground turkey).
Another way I kept these patties moist was by adding in grated zucchini. This also helped to bulk up the size of my patties making for a more pleasingly filling burger!
And for good measure—mostly because in this family you add sour cream on top of everything—I also used it for the tzatziki-style topper, along with feta, fresh parsley, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. This sauce is incredible, I have to say. So easy yet so flavorful! I’d use it with steak, chicken, fish…you name it.
These turkey burgers are a fabulous summer dinner idea, easy to make, and have such great fresh flavor. Hood Sour Cream is made with high quality ingredients and gives a consistent and delicious taste. It’s no wonder that it has been trusted for generations to make simple recipes spectacular. It is the real star of the show in this quick and delicious weekday dinner.
