I went a bit out on a line, as usual, and tried to spice up our turkey burgers. We love burgers but we try to eat the healthier version by using ground turkey.
Saturday night I decided to do this home made recipe and it was delicous. I must say, I don’t really measure out things like this so these amounts are estimates. It was one of those times were I just throw in what I have.
- 1 pound Ground Turkey (we get ours at Aldi)
- 4 mushrooms with stems removed
- 1 small red onion
- handful of Romano Cheese shredded
- teaspoon-ish of minced garlic
I minced the mushrooms and onions.
Dropped in to the food processor.
Added in the garlic, salt, pepper, cheese, and the ground turkey.
I pulsed this to mix lightly being careful I don’t make it mushy.
Then I formed into several patties.
I usually grill my burgers, even in winter, but our grill is in storage because we don’t have a grill cover for it right now, so I had to cook these on the stove.
I melted some real cheddar cheese on the top and they were ready to be topped and scarfed down.
I top mine with lots of fresh things like tomato, romaine, spinach, some times sliced avocado, mushrooms, and I have to have some moisture so I use an olive oil mayo and a tad of mustard.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. You can modify it to fit your tastes of course. Nothing in cooking is every written in stone!
Sorry, no photo’s. I thought about taking some but I was too hungry to go get the camera. Maybe next time! I do have left overs in the fridge I will be eating for lunch 🙂 which I will warm back up on the stove since we don’t use a microwave (rarely, I think its a fancy bread box).
