foodie wednesday: world's best turkey burger

ok, i know "world's best" is quite a bold claim, but these burgers are damn-near close.  all the yummy add-in like bbq sauce and caramelized onions make these babies super-moist and tender.  they are delish on a fresh baked ciabatta roll, on focaccia or atop a salad.

 1 pound lean ground turkey meat
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup grape jelly
1/4 cup bbq sauce
2 tablespoons mustard
2-3 teaspoons curry
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1 egg
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 onion, chopped and caramelized
1. saute chopped onion in olive oil until caramelized. (this will take15-20 minutes.)

2. put ground turkey in a large bowl and add ketchup, jelly, bbq sauce, mustard, curry, salt, pepper, egg, bread crumbs and onions. mix thoroughly until well-combined.

3. form into 6 patties.

4. prepare a large cast iron skillet heated on medium to medium-high with a tablespoon of olive oil.

5. cook burgers (partially covered) 4-5 minutes each side or until juices run clear.

top with cheese, if you wish.  this recipe also makes for terrific meatballs and also great sliders : )

  1. Ohhh yum...I could have one of those just about now. Looks delicious:) Happy Wed! Muah

  2. mmmm, i LOVE a good turkey burger. anytime where most of the ingredients are cooked into the burger i think it will be a major win.

  3. Found your blog through Sam, above, and I love it. These turkey burgers look amazing I would have never thought to add Jelly.

    I hope your honeymoon is amazing and I'm happy to be a new follower :)


  4. I finally made these having pinned them years ago! However, mine turned into a completely runny mess that I had to turn into sloppy joes. The patties were so wet they completely fell apart when I tried to flip them. I'm trying to figure out where I went!


hello there. thank you for your comments - i love reading them.
