Delicious turkey burger

Last night, Bryan constructed a turkey burger that can only be described as magnificent. When he bit into this masterpiece, it made the “Carl’s Jr.” noise from the commercials. It oozed delicious Tillamook cheese. His eyes rolled back in his head and he declared this “the best burger he has ever had”. BOLD statement right?! Here’s the recipe:

Bryan’s Famous Turkey Burger

  • 1 lb. ground turkey (we used Jennie-O)
  • 1 tbls Lizano (if you can’t find Lizano, just sub Worcestershire)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 large white onion, chopped
  • 1 4 oz. can green chilis
  • 4 slices Tillamook medium cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 4 large onion buns
  • Ketchup, mustard as desired

In a large bowl, mix ground turkey, Lizano, salt pepper, onion and green chilis together. Do not overmix. Form 4 burger patties. Pre-heat grill pan to medium to medium high and spray with non-stick. Place burgers on grill pan. Meanwhile, toast onion buns lightly under the broiler (watch closely so they don’t burn). Flip burgers after 6-8 minutes and continue to cook another 5-7 minutes. During the last 1-2 minutes of cooking, top burger with additional onion (if desired), bacon strips and cheese. Cover grill pan with lid and allow cheese to melt. Remove buns from broiler and place burger patty on bun. Top with ketchup and/or mustard. Enjoy!
