Martha Stewart's Great Food Fast cookbook posts a simple, yet effective, counter to ensuring that your turkey burger doesn't dry out or lack flavor. If you can throw the ingredients in a bowl and then form a few patties, you are ready for a great meal.
Large Non-stick skillet (use a grill skillet if you have one)
Functional stove or grill
Knife, for chopping
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey meat (I prefer ground turkey breast)
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded Swiss or Gruyere cheese
1 Tbls Dijon mustard
4 scallions, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 tsp of salt
Fresh ground pepper
Red or White onion (raw or grilled)
Heinz 57 Sauce
1. Wash Your Hands
2. Combine ground turkey with the bread crumbs, cheese, scallions, Dijon and garlic. Mix well.
3. Add salt and pepper.
6. Sear one side of patty (without looking) for 4-5 minutes over MEDIUM heat before turning it over.
7. Sear the other side for another 5-6 minutes until cooked thru.
Enjoy the burger plain with a side of Proscuitto-Wrapped Asparagus (see previous May 2013 blog) or with all the fix in's (see partial photo from original recipe photo)!
