My Rockin’ Turkey Burger is full of flavour and a favourite at our July 1st celebrations.  I like to serve it on a onion bun or pretzel bun and side of coleslaw. You can add cranberry sauce to the recipe instead of on top if you wish. Either way is a tasty way to add some red to your Canada Day festivities.

 


Ingredients

2lb Hayter’s Ground Turkey                                                                                                                                                                                                                     1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips (can use regular bread crumbs)
1 large egg
1 garlic clove, chopped finely
1/2 cup onions, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1 Tablespoon Roasted Red Pepper & Garlic spice
1 Tablespoon Italian spices
1/2 cup grated parmasan cheese
3 cranks of fresh black pepper

PauliAnna’s Must-Have Burger Topper:

1/4 Cup Whole berry Cranberry Sauce
1/2 cup low fat mayo or miracle whip
1 Tablespoon minced garlic, fresh or jar


Method of Preparation

Mix all ingredients together in bowl except the Burger topper sauce
Form 6 Turkey Burgers, press centre of the patties slightly so the edges are slightly thicker. This ensures burgers are cooked evenly; centre is cooked and the edges aren’t dried out.
Preheat BBQ on medium heat
Spray Burgers with cooking spray
Grill 5 minutes each side, then additional 2-3 minutes each side, until juices run clear, I recommend using a thermometer. Insert through the side of burger, not the top for an accurate reading. Internal temperature should be 170F/77C

Add a dollop of PauliAnna’s Burger Topper Sauce

optional: Melt swiss cheese on top
