This sauce can make anything taste amazing!
This lemon aioli is one of my favorite burger toppings. I used to be a ketchup girl. I spent years and years eating ketchup with everything. No matter what mom was serving, there would be a giant dollop of ketchup on my plate.
At some point, my taste buds required more flavor so I moved on to bbq sauce. I wasn’t picky about brand, I just needed something to mask what mom was cooking. My bbq sauce phase lasted well into my high school years and as I graduated from high school, I also graduated from bbq sauce. Buffalo wing sauce and all its saucy spiciness became my new obsession.
I have loved Buffalo wing sauce for a long time, but I have to say, aioli is making up ground. In its simplest and purest form, aioli is an egg-based sauce, often infused with garlic and mustard. I personally do not want to mess with making a sauce out of raw eggs so I, like many, turn to using mayo instead. I have infused my aioli with Harissa and served it with bacon wrapped roasted potatoes, and I’ve served a basil aioli with grilled tilapia. Aioli is versatile both in ingredients and with what it can be served.
This particular aioli is made with fragrant, fresh herbs like rosemary, tarragon, and oregano. I also added fresh lemon juice, zest and just a touch of Dijon mustard. This herbaceous mixture makes the perfect topping to Honeysuckle White’s Spinach and Kale Turkey Patties. Feel free to use any herb in place of the ones listed here. Basil, parsley, thyme, cilantro, chives, and dill would make excellent substitutions!
I ADORE these patties! I cannot tell you how many times I have prepared frozen patties only to find them flatten like paper once cooked. These turkey patties remain juicy and plump and they taste like I just made them myself. Normally I am all about homemade turkey burgers, but I don’t always have that kind of time. Having a frozen option, that not only tastes good but is healthy as well, is a huge bonus! I am partial to these spinach and kale turkey patties (both the spinach and kale are mixed right onto the patty) but the Cranberry Jalapeno Turkey patties are wonderful if you want a subtle sweet/spicy flavor. Both varieties are delicious and easy to prepare!
