This meal taught me something…I don’t like turkey burgers. The only reason why I ate mine was I could tell this recipe, albeit turkey burgers, was a really good combination of flavors. So, lesson learned: I don’t like turkey burgers, but if you do – make this recipe.
Tuscan Turkey Burgers
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1/4 cup pesto (or you could use store-bought)
- 1/3 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
- 1/2 of a small red onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 plum tomato, sliced
- 4 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced
- Hamburger buns
- Balsamic syrup, reduced
Mix the turkey, pesto, sundried tomatoes, onion, and garlic together well. The recommended way is to place a stone on grill and heat it up; we skipped this and did have to watch for flare-ups. Shape the turkey burgers into four balls, tightly packed, put on the hot stone, and then flatten into a burger. Grill for 8 minutes per side until there is no pink in the center. If you want to melt the cheese a bit, place the fresh mozzarella on top of the burgers and close the grill for a minute or two. Off the grill, add the tomatoes and balsamic reduction on top and serve.
