One of the problems with turkey burgers is that they can just be so dry and tasteless. These burgers compensate with the addition of spices, dried cranberries, parsley and green onions. My husband’s uncle served cranberry turkey burgers one year after Christmas. We liked them so much we tried to replicate them at home and this is what we came up with. Since then it’s become a family favorite and we’ve made it again and again.
- 1 pound Ground turkey
- ¼ cup Dried cranberries chopped
- 1 green onion (scallion) chopped, finely
- 1 TBSP chopped parsley
- ½ teaspoon Allspice
- ¼ teaspoon Ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon Basil dried
- ¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
- You can cook these like any other burger but it’s generally recommended that they are cooked at a slightly lower heat for a longer time to ensure that they inside reaches the correct temperature.
Mayo, mango chutney, cranberry sauce, tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, avocado. (but not all at once!)
