Is that a carrot in my burger? Yoder's is a family business with high quality meat. Their ground turkey is very moist, but I still wanted to add something to keep it moist since I was cooking it on the stove. I used shredded carrot and it added a slightly sweet dimension. Aaron doesn't like onions too much so I thought the carrot would work perfectly. I took two bites before I decided it was good enough to blog about! I served it up with frozen sweet potato fries from Trader Joe's. My favorite hamburger buns are from Trader Joe's, too. They're very hearty, whole wheat buns that have a slightly sweet flavor. We added a slice of American cheese (from Yoder's! - love that place...) and a little mayo and ketchup and we were good to go.
Amanda's Easy Weeknight Turkey Cheese Burger
Make 4 burgers
- 1 pound high quality ground turkey (maybe get a mix ground thigh with ground breast)
- 1 tbs crushed garlic
- 1 tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning
- 1 large shredded carrot
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 4 whole wheat buns
- 4 slices cheese
- Favorite condiments, such as - mayo, ketchup, bbq sauce, mustard, lettuce, tomato, sliced onion, avocado, sweet relish, sauteed mushrooms, etc
Mix ingredients in a bowl with your hands. Score the meat mixture in 4 even sections. With your hands form a patty, flattening evenly.
Cook burgers about 5 minutes on each side. Make sure to use a meat thermometer if you have any doubts to ensure that the turkey is cooked.
Assemble the burger and enjoy!
