Jennie O Bahn Mi Turkey Burger has all of the robust flavors of a traditional Bahn Mi with a healthier side of turkey burger.
I’m still going strong with my Eat More Turkey campaign and participating in #switchcircle and this turkey burger does not disappoint. Did you know that Bahn Mi is the Vietnamese word for a single baguette? That’s right and if you’ve never had one they are a bit sweet and tangy and a little spicy.
We have a local sandwich shop that makes the best Bahn Mi sandwiches. They pack theirs full of roasted pork which is traditional for this Vietnamese sandwich. I decided to change it up a bit and use some of the traditional topping on a Jennie O Bahn Mi Turkey Burger.
