So I found this awesome recipe for turkey burgers. I switched my family to ground turkey from ground beef a few years ago. Its leaner and cheaper. I usually make turkey loaf or Shepperd's pie. But I found this recipe a few days ago and thought hmmm I already have one lb of turkey meat in my freezer why not go out and buy another pound. So that's what I did, except I changed the recipe up a bit. The original one called for lemon, mango chutney and parsley. I switched out the mango chutney for cranberry chutney (I usually use this chutney with chicken thighs, orange and cinnamon), I used an orange instead of a lemon and used dried basil (only because the two stores I went to did not have fresh parsley, and I thought I had dried parsley at home....I did not, go figure).
Just chop up your celery, green onion and apple. You can grate your apple like in the recipe above, I chunked mine and I think next time I will grate it because some of the chunks fell out while frying it up.
Add the celery and apple to the pan and soften. After a few minutes I added the green onion.
What I did was fry it up a few minutes on each side. Then I stuck them in a 350 degree oven for ten minutes. You want to make sure these burgers are cooked to 165 degrees because it is turkey. I then took some left over chutney and mixed it with mayo. Yummo! Put that on the bun and added lettuce and the burger. I could have made them prettier but last night was a tramatic night, so I did what I could hehe. I also added provolone cheese to ours because well, we are cheese lovers.
2 lbs. ground turkey (mine was 85/15)
1 1/2 apples, peeled, cored and diced (next time I will grate)
1 1/2 stalk of celery, finely chopped
1 green onion stem, chopped
oil of course for frying
1 orange, zested and juiced
2 T. cranberry chutney
Parsley to taste (I used dried basil, a few shakes)
1 t. tabascco sauce
1 t. black pepper
1 T. (scant) salt, I just used what I had
2 T. mayo
1 T. cranberry chutney
mix those two together, its delish.
