Once you have tried these turkey burgers you will agree with me that they can hold their own against beef burgers.

These burgers are really tasty and there is a lot of meat in one burger.

The turkey burger does not shrink as the beef does.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 kg or 2 lbs or ground lean turkey
  • ⅓ cup or 78 ml onions, chopped fine
  • ¼ cup or 60 ml of bread crumbs
  • 1 celery speer, peeled and minced
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 2 eggs, whipped
  • ½ tsp of kosher salt
  • ½ tsp of turmeric, powder form
  • ⅛ tsp of fresh ground white pepper
  • 3-4 tbsp of butter
Basting the Turkey Burger

In a medium sized bowl add the turkey, onions, bread crumbs, celery and green onion. In a small bowl or cereal bowl whip the eggs, add the salt turmeric and pepper. Whip so it is well mixed.

Add the egg mixture to the turkey mixture and using your clean hands, mix. Like with all ground meat, do not mix too much, just enough to combine all the ingredients.

Make 6 burgers and lay on a cutting board or wax paper. Again, do not handle the burger more then you have to.

In a large frying pan melt the butter and get it good and hot. Add the burgers, if you do not have a large frying pan, make two batches.

Fry the burgers just over medium heat for 5 minutes, then flip them over and do 5 more minutes. At this point get a tablespoon or serving spoon out and start basting the burgers with the butter in the pan. Baste them as much as time permits.

When the buzzer rings, flip the burgers again and fry for an additional 3-4 minutes then flip again and fry 3-4 minutes for a total of 8-9 minutes on each side. Again, baste the burgers during the frying time as much as time permits. If you need to add some more butter, just do so.

Basting the burger with butter makes the burger really juicy and taste just scrumptious so please do not miss that step. It’s a bit of work, but worth it.

Serve the burgers on a ciabatta bun and top the burger with lots of red cabbage salad, it goes really well together. You can, of course, use whatever you feel like.

A little tip; when you flip the burgers use a spatula and a tablespoon. Use the tablespoon to slow the burger down when you flip it. This way you don't get butter all over the place.

Enjoy
