Trouble With Toast

Recipe: Turkey Burger | June 27, 2008

Not to jump on Miss Lemmonex’s coattails, but I made some pretty tasty turkey burgers the other night. This recipe came from the aforementioned Martha Stewart-affiliated cookbook, and I gotta tell ya, I am lovin’ it. The cheese and the mustard (combined with the fact that I used 93% lean meat instead of 99%) kept the burgers nice and moist and also added great flavor. The only thing I might do differently next time is add some red pepper flakes for kick.

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
    1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere
    4 thinly sliced scallions
    1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
    1/4 cup Dijon mustard
    1 minced garlic clove
    Salt and pepper
    Hamburger buns

Heat grill or skillet (I used a nonstick indoor grill pan). Combine turkey, Gruyere, scallions, breadcrumbs, mustard, garlic, and salt and pepper (I always mix burgers with my hands). Form into 4 patties, whatever thickness you prefer. Grill over medium-high heat for about 10-12 minutes per side, depending on thickness (just make sure the meat is cooked through). Chow down!

Oh, and the reason there are no pretty burger pictures with everything all stacked up nice-like? We may or may not have scarfed them down too fast. They were THAT good.

    Do you think Tony and Eric would let us ride on their coattails?

  2. Thanks, hon. For letting me ride your coattails, AND for giving me a mental picture of Tony, Eric, and riding of any kind. 🙂 I want to go back to sleep so I can continue that dream. There HAD to be some naughty fun coming, I just woke up too soon, right?!?!
