On a quest to find a healthier alternative, I experimented last night with a new recipe. This one is really, REALLY good! And, easy. And, quick. And, dork cook proof – which is really the most important thing in my book of cooking reasoning. 😉 And, despite the ‘chick’ food that turkey or chicken implies, my husband loved the burger. Loved it!
Rosemary and Garlic Turkey Burgers
3 or 4 Kaiser Rolls
1 pound ground turkey or ground chicken
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
1 Tablespoon fresh Rosemary, chopped fine
1 cup mayonnaise
Mix chopped garlic and rosemary with the mayonnaise. Add 1/2 cup of the mayo mixture to the ground turkey (chicken) and mix well, but careful not to overwork the meat. Note: this is a very sticky meat mixture and will probably work best on a stove top or electric griddle rather than an outdoor grill unless you have a cast iron plate for your grill. Grill meat until all pink is gone. Meanwhile, cut rolls in half and drizzle olive oil on each half. Then, spread a little bit of the mayo mixture on each half. Grill each half face down until toasty, golden brown. Spread a little more mayo mixture on each half, top on side with fresh spinach or lettuce of choice (you’ll want a dark leaf – not iceberg) and place meat on the bun. That’s it!
I served our turkey burgers with a pasta salad. It was light and yummy. Chick food rocks!
Y’all Enjoy! 😉
