This Italian turkey burgers post was sponsored by Shady Brook Farms turkey brand as part of an In-Home Party Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
Easy Italian Turkey Burgers
You have no idea how happy it made me when the cold weather went away. Not only did I gleefully pack away all my jackets and wraps, but I dusted off the grill and got the back porch all squared away for parties.
Then, I got to host a party with a little help from Shady Brook Farms! They sent me a beautifully engraved wooden serving tray, Mason jar glasses, and linen napkins, plus spice jar party favors and recipe cards to take home.

Along with myself and my husband, we invited a few close family members over. Everyone was excited to see the goodies from Shady Brook Farms and taste some wholesome, flavorful turkey products from Shady Brook Farms
We fired up the grill promptly and prepared the turkey burgers and sausages. While everyone was waiting for the food, we sipping our sweet iced tea on the back porch. One of us staked out the hammock, while everyone else claimed one of the low wooden sofas or an old-fashioned rocking chair.
The aroma of grilled turkey mingled with the fresh breeze and the subtle citrus scent wafting from a nearby kumquat tree. I shared what I had learned about Shady Brook Farms products, such as that they come from more than 700 independent family farms, and that they are from turkeys raised without growth-promoting antibiotics, yet are still easy on your wallet.

With a choice of ground turkey, turkey sausages, and turkey brats, you’re sure to find something perfect to throw on the grill!
The outdoor dining table was all set up with Mason jar glasses and checked napkins. There’s nothing like checked napkins to make a party feel like a real outdoor event. I pulled out some festive red plates for a coordinated look.
After grilling up the Shady Brook Farms Turkey Brats, we served them up on the beautiful wooden tray. I totally agree that “Good food is made with love.”

Everyone really enjoyed the juicy turkey brats. It’s a good thing I bought two packages, because they were snapped up in a flash by our hungry guests. These can go on classic bratwurst buns, topped with a squirt or two of deli style mustard, or get creative with these awesome turkey recipes. Although some of us (I plead the Fifth on this one) simply picked one up with a fork and started nibbling.
Finally, the star of the show appeared. The Easy Italian Turkey Burgers were a hit, too! We topped ours with a little vodka sauce. You could also try a drizzle of alfredo, or swap out the classic lettuce for basil leaves.
I hope you enjoyed reading about our party as much as we enjoyed having it. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the top of this post to win your own serving tray and Shady Brook Farms turkey product!
