After a great pasta dish last night for my birthday dinner, I was inspired to combine flavors from the pasta in some turkey burgers we had tonight for dinner. The pasta had sun dried tomatoes, which are sweet and chewy, so I added those to ground turkey, along with basil, which always pairs well with tomatoes. Another flavoring agent that makes these burgers a little more special was a little bit of balsamic vinaigrette, which get sweeter as it cooks. You could make these burgers a lot larger, but I made them the size that was proportionate to the buns we put them on.
