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.



Burger Blend:

  • 2lb Hayter’s Minced 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 parmesan 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

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl except the Burger topper sauce
  2. Form 6 Turkey Burgers, the press center of the patties slightly so the edges are slightly thicker. This ensures burgers are cooked evenly; the centre is cooked and the edges aren’t dried out.
  3. Preheat BBQ on medium heat
  4. Spray Burgers with cooking spray
  5. 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 the burger, not the top for an accurate reading. Internal temperature should be 165F/74C
  6. Add a dollop of PauliAnna’s Burger Topper Sauce & ENJOY!

Optional: Melt swiss cheese on top
