Tasty Turkey Burgers
I’ll admit that it took my family some time to come around to the goodness of turkey burgers. I tried to change the way they thought about burgers and not having a beef burger is okay. Over time this has become the most requested dish by my family. I love it when they call to ask me exactly what I put in the mix or explain they tried making them, but they weren’t as good as mine. As much as I’d love to tell them there’s a secret ingredient, there’s not. My secret is to throw in as many goodies as possibly to give that turkey some flavor.
Ground turkey is bland and if you don’t spruce it up of course it’s going to taste boring and you’ll never want another turkey burger again. Also, do yourself a favor and stay away from the frozen turkey burgers because they are pure cardboard compared to these. Instead buy yourself 1lb of ground turkey, your favorite veggies, and get ready for the flavor. Cookout season is upon us and I can’t keep this one to myself. Here’s everything you’ll need to make some kick-ass turkey burgers:
1lb Ground Turkey
2 Cloves Minced garlic
1 Pepper diced (red, orange, or yellow)
1 Sm Red onion diced
1 Cup Crumbled feta cheese
1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 Cup Fresh baby spinach
1 Tbsp Crushed red pepper depending on your heat toleerance
1 Tbsp Sriracha (only if you like the heat)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients with the ground turkey. Mix well, but be sure not to overwork it. I can usually get 5-6 patties out of this mixture. You can grill them or cook them on the stove-top. If you grill them be sure to use med-low heat to avoid any sticking. If you want another layer of flavor top these with some pepper jack cheese.
That’s all that’s involved with recipe, I hope that you enjoy it. Feel free to make this recipe your own by throwing in whatever diced vegetables you like. What I love most about cooking is stepping outside the box, in this case making something delicious that might bend the traditional notions of a burger makes my taste buds happy.
