I’ve never made turkey burgers any differently than adding some hamburger seasoning, lighting up the grill, and calling it a night!
Tonight, I decided to try something differently, and there were mixed reviews. I thought they had more flavor than the regular way we cook them, but my husband thought they tasted the same. I modified the original recipe using reviews from other people, and I really think that helped. I also had some of my own recommendations that I added to the end of the recipe. It is portioned out for 2 people, so feel free to double it up for more! Bon Appetit!
1/2 Pound Ground Turkey
2 Teaspoons Bread Crumbs
2 Teaspoons Diced Onion
1/2 Egg Whites from (1) Egg
2 Teaspoons Parsley
1 Teaspoon Finely Chopped Garlic
1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
4 Splashes Worcester Sauce
2 Splashes Soy Sauce
- In a large bowl, mix ground turkey, seasoned bread crumbs, onion, egg whites, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper. Form into 2 patties.
- Cook the patties in a medium skillet over medium heat, turning once, to an internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C)
- Warm Up the pretzel rolls and top with the turkey burger
What I loved about these was the onion and garlic mix inside….yum! I think I will do burgers this way every time.
The other thing I loved was the pretzel roll…genius. It added some salt and buttery taste, which brought out the flavor in the turkey burger.
I think that they could have had more flavor so maybe I would add onion powder, garlic salt, and/or hamburger seasoning.
Keep an eye on it…I didn’t have a meat thermometer, but the best way to make sure you don’t over or under cook is to check the temp!
Chef Rating: B+
Because these tasted the same, I wouldn’t rank these in the A range, since it was more time consuming than just shaking some seasoning on it. I wouldn’t rank it any lower than this because it was still flavorful and tasty.
