Concept behind the dish

I grew up eating turkey burgers and will order them over beef burgers most of the time (sorry burger aficionados.)

I like to add different ingredients into the meat before cooking (like dried jalapeño flakes or green onions or Worcestershire sauce.)  In this dish, I decided to use diced ramps.  The onion and garlic flavor carries through each bite and will be sure to have some burger converts.Turkey Burger with Wilk Leeks
