DH saw a picture in a magazine of a "burger" made with a ground turkey breast patty instead of beef and he said it looked pretty good and wanted to try it. The picture he saw was not accompanied by a recipe although it didn't look store-bought. So I've bought the ground turkey breast, what should I add to it to give it some flavor? If it were beef I usually just add an egg, some salt and pepper and some worcestershire sauce. I'm not sure the woozy sauce would be good with the turkey but it seems like it would need something else. Any ideas?<br><br>
Thanks,<br>

worcester sauce is good. gives it a bit of a swedish meatball flavor. serve with turkey bacon and blue cheese and sweet potatoe fries. mmmmmm..

I made a delicious turkey burger from an Everyday Food recipe:<br><br>
Ingredients<br>
Serves 4<br>
6 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread<br>
1 pound lean ground turkey (7 percent fat)<br>
1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream<br>
4 tablespoons prepared mango chutney, preferably Major Grey's, finely chopped<br>
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard<br>
1 tablespoon chili powder<br>
Coarse salt<br>
1 cup mesclun lettuce mix<br>
1 medium tomato, sliced<br><br>
Directions<br>
In a medium bowl, tear 2 slices bread into small pieces. Add turkey, sour cream, 3 tablespoons chutney, 1 tablespoon mustard, chili powder, and 1 teaspoon coarse salt. Shape into 4 firmly packed 5-inch round patties.<br><br>
(If desired, freeze on a baking sheet until firm, about 30 minutes, then wrap each burger in plastic; place all burgers in a resealable freezer bag, label, and date. Freeze up to 2 months. )<br><br>
To cook: Thaw burgers overnight in the refrigerator. Heat broiler with rack set 4 inches from heat. Place burgers on a rimmed baking sheet; broil until firm and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.<br><br>
Lightly toast 4 slices bread. Dividing evenly, top each with lettuce, burger, and tomato. Stir together 1 tablespoon each chutney and mustard, and serve alongside burgers.

I believe mine involves a little soy sauce and onion soup mix.<br><br>
I LOVE turkey burgers. I need to make some.

One thing to watch out for with turkey burgers - because of the lower fat content, they can be dryer than beef.<br><br>
BTW - ground turkey for tacos = <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

That's why you should make my recipe. Nice and moist. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

It does look tasty but I'd have to sneak in the sour cream and chutney--DH has strong opposition to both of those things, but if he doesn't know it and they don't dominate as far as flavor then we're okay. And I'm not sure if I can get chutney here--small town. Where would you normally find that in the grocery store?<br><br>
Thanks for all of the replies so far!<br><br>

I couldn't taste the sour cream at all - that just made them moister. The chutney was very subtle, too, but if you get a chunky chutney it will be visible in the burgers!!<br><br>
I find chutney by the pickles and condiments at my store.

I wanted to give this suggestion a shout out. When I got home last night from my run, in the freezer I had some turkey burger patties and now that I'm avoiding gluten, haven't really had the inclination to use them for burger purposes. So I defrosted 4 of them and fried them up along with some beans to make a good burrito mix.

i add egg, breadcrumbs, dill, minced garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.<br><br>
then form into patties and fry or grill. and serve with yogurt or tzatziki, spinach leaves, pita, olives, chopped salad and hummus.
