Not the prettiest burgers but boy do these babies pack a punch! They had some serious flavor going on! I bought a bunch of ground turkey and made several batches of burgers, meatloaf, taco meat, the works all in one day. These came out of the freezer tonight so they did have time to marinate.
I like sauce. I always need some kind of sauce with my food. Regular ketchup and mustard wasn't going to work for these burgers so I mixed up some spicy sour cream to put on mine. I use half light sour cream and half salsa and mix it together. It went really good.
Spicy Turkey Burgers
Adapted from Allrecipes
1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey
2 tbsp. garlic, minced
1 tsp. ginger (I used from a jar)
1 1/2 green chile peppers, finely diced
1 onion, finely diced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. pepper
2 1/2 tbsp. paprika
1 tbsp. ground mustard
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 dash worcestershire sauce
Combine everything and form into 6 burger patties. Cook on stovetop or grill until done. They are quite moist, I made mine in a pan on the stove and they held together fine.
