Usually we go out for dinner on Friday nights – I’m usually spent and don’t really feel like cooking. Plus our weekends tend to be busy so it is nice to go out as a family and have a nice dinner out. Max doesn’t mind – he loves restaurants. We decided to mix things up a bit and go to ‘The Works’ – which is a fantastic Burger joint that started in Ottawa, but now has locations in other parts of Ontario. You go there for burgers – nothing else (they do have other things on the menu – but it is a burger joint). Usually it takes me 10 minutes to select a burg from their massive burger list. Last night it only took me 2 seconds. Why? Because their ‘special burger’ was a Turkey Festive Burger!
The Turkey Festive Burger is a turkey patty, topped with a layer of stuffing, lettuce, cranberry sauce and smothered in gravy! It was too good to pass up. Both P and I ordered it, with sweet potato fries on the side for me, poutine for P. Max had a Plain Jack burger with cucumber slices. The burgers came and oh my, was it a mess! I used approximately 4 napkins and got some gravy in my hair (you can’t take me anywhere). But oh how delicious! The stuffing really made the burger – it was real stuffing that seemed to have been grilled, so it has a nice layer of crispy goodness. The gravy (which was the messy part) made everything mush together nicely. The sweet potato fries paired nicely with the burger. It was a very pleasant meal!
Max polished off most of his burger (he didn’t like the crispy bits), half a bun and all of his cucumber. He also had a saltine cracker appetizer! He was very proud of himself!
So if you have a Works burger joint near you – go and check out the Turkey Festive Burger!!
