This post is written in collaboration with Butterball, all opinions are my own.

With Father's Day only days away, I know I am not alone in searching out the perfect way to make the day special for the men in my life. My own father passed away ten years ago, but I have an awesome step-dad that has really stepped up to the plate. He has been working hard lately to shed a few pounds (not that he needs it,) so finding a man-friendly meal that will bring a smile to his face this Father's Day was not such an easy task. Luckily, I remembered the Butterball app on my phone, and I was able to find a lighter take on the ultimate "man" burger that will be perfect this Father's Day.

BLT Turkey Burger Ingredients: 

This lighter take on a familiar favorite is the perfect way to celebrate dad this Father's Day. Reward him with a juicy and delicious burger piled high with all the fixings without any of the guilt, so there is plenty of room for dessert. Some of you might remember that I used the Butterball Cookbook Plus app to find the perfect recipe for our Memorial Day grill out too, and I am pleased to report that the Grilled Salsa Turkey Burgers turned out to be delicious, so I know this recipe is sure to please too.
