Recipe: Turkey burger

For a turkey burger that is moist and flavorful, this ones for you. It’s by far the best one I’ve ever had. I stopped using ground beef at home 4 years ago and use turkey for everything from meatballs to meatloaf to burgers! And I’ll never be sorry, even my husband is glad we made the switch. Most of the time a burger made of anything other than beef turns out to dry and so that’s why most people stay away, but I promise you this one will not be that way if you give it a try!

Turkey burger recipe:

1 1/2 pounds ground turkey (93 percent lean)
1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere cheese
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
Coarse salt and ground pepper

Step 1 Heat grill to high. In a medium bowl, use a fork to gently combine ground turkey with Gruyere, scallions, breadcrumbs, mustard, and garlic; season generously with salt and pepper. Gently form mixture into four 1-inch-thick patties. This could easily make 6 thinner patties too.

Step 2 Lightly oil grill. Place patties on hottest part of grill; sear until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Move patties to cooler part of grill; continue grilling until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Slice into the middle of a patty to make sure it isn’t pink inside.

I served this up with some homemade potato wedges – yum!
