Turkey Burger Challenge

What to do when you have 2 lbs of ground turkey to use up?
Turkey burgers, of course!

I've never made a turkey burger so I searched for some recipes.
1st up was last night:
1 pound ground turkey breast

1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
                                                          1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
                                                           1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
                                                                1 3/4 oz feta cheese

In a large bowl, combine the chopped parsley, ground turkey, black pepper, salt, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, garlic powder and feta cheese with a fork. Be careful not to overwork the meat. Divide mixture into 4 equal sized burgers. If grilling, either spray grill with cooking spray (before lighting!) or brush with oil to keep burgers from sticking to grates. Grill (or broil) the burgers until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.
Since I had feta on hand, I had to make my favorite carrot and apple slaw. (courtesty WW)
Verdict? Awesome! The burgers had tons of yummy flavor and I served them in Arnold's Sandwich Thins. I'd be happy to make the same recipe tonight, but am going to try a different one for fun to use up the other pound of meat. I'll be trying a teriyaki version. I'll let you know how it goes. I know you will all be dying in anticipation.

Have a great Tuesday! Enjoy the beautiful weather!!

We had turkey burgers as well! But I'm not as fancy as you...I just threw some liptons onion soup mix in with the ground turkey and top with a slice of Swiss cheese. Yum! I will def. Have to try yours and I'm curious about the teriyaki ones too!

I'm a turkey-burger loser; I have NEVER had a turkey burger....so I'm just gong to steal all these recipes and not leave you one of my own. Forgive me, please :-)

I heart Arnold's Sandwich Thins!! AND Turkey Burgers! Kudos to you for actually using a recipe for turkey burgers. I'm just the lazy one who smooshes them up into patties and that's it. So I will definitely have to give this a try! Thanks!!!
