Favorite Turkey Burger

So, still no photos. My camera battery STILL needs to be charged...and now I can't find the charger. Yeesh. Moving has really screwed up my sense of organization! On the up side, we haven't had any new recipes (aside from this one). You see, you're really not missing anything exciting.

I needed a fast, easy, and yummy turkey burger recipe so I turned to the Martha Stewart website for inspiration. As expected, Martha came through for me and we had these totally delicious burgers for dinner one night last week.

Favorite Turkey Burger
From:, Everyday Food May/June 2003

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
Oil (for grill grates or grill pan)

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.

Lightly oil grill (or grill pan). 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, 5 to 10 minutes per side.

The Result:
Easy and delicious. A great twist on a classic!
