These little turkey burgers have become a family favorite! Chris and I call the "turgers" for short. The original idea for these came from the Harris Grill menu (I admit). I worked there for about 2 years during undergrad (not too long ago ha ha) as a prep chef. I of course, use a lean, all white meat ground turkey (as opposed to stuff that came in a frozen tube). They use sweetened dried cranberries, white panko bread crumbs and dried ground sage in their version; I use dried cherries, oatmeal and fresh sage!
|Here it is all finely chopped!|
|Step 2: Combine about 1 lb. of extra lean ground turkey, with 1/3 cup dried cherries (or cranberries), 1 egg and oatmeal-sage mixture. Mix well!|
|Step 3: Shape into 6-8 patties.|
|Step 4: Grill for 4-5 minutes on each side. Don't forget to check the internal temp. It should be 165F.|
|I also make a rosemary spread for these little turgers. I just mix finely chopped fresh rosemary with a little light mayo, some Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard and a drop or two of light soy sauce. Enjoy!|
