I really love turkey burgers, despite the fact they get a bad rap, but I don’t make them at home that often. I have a go-to Curry Turkey Burgers recipe that I used to make a lot years ago, but I decided to do something different for a cookout Saturday. I read that adding olive oil adds moisture to the burgers, and this recipe reflects that.
1 pound ground turkey thigh
1 red pepper, minced
one small onion, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
salt and pepper
handful parsley, chopped
about 2 tbsp olive oil
In a bowl, combine red pepper, turkey, salt and pepper, and egg.
Heat oil in pan. Sautee onions until soft. Add oil and onions to burger mixture.
Grill until burgers are crisp on the outside and cooked through. I like mine with cheese, grilled red onion and mustard.
