When Wiz Khalifa cooks for friends and family, there’s one meal that stands above the rest.

“Turkey burgers are one of my favorite comfort meals,” says the rapper, singer, actor, and father of one. “I have been eating them for over 15 years and everyone who knows me, knows they hold a special place.” This turkey burger recipe, which Khalifa has dubbed the “Taylor Gang Turkey Burger”, comes courtesy of Khalifa’s newly launched “HotBox By Wiz”, a delivery-only national restaurant chain. Khalifa curated the menu, which includes options like wings, sandwiches, chips, and more based on his favorite 420 eats. Items on the menu can be ordered through most delivery apps.“The Dad Special” is a celebration of food, family, and fathers who cook. Featuring chefs, celebrities, and kitchen crazy dads, this collection highlights meals — from family secrets to quick kid delights — meant to honor time spent at the table.But that doesn’t mean the food isn’t kid friendly. Hardly. Khalifa regularly serves up this turkey burger, his Dad Special, for his son Sebastian. “He loves them too,” says Khalifa. “So it’s been fun sharing meals together.”
