After reading this turkey burger recipe on Crepes of Wrath several months ago, I bookmarked it and then promptly forgot about it — until last Friday, when I was searching for some dinner inspiration online.
These turkey burgers were absolutely delicious. I modified several of the ingredients to the what I had on hand, and since we didn’t have buns or bread, I used our pizza dough recipe to make flatbread instead.
The pita-like breads were the perfect complement to the juicy, savory turkey burgers, which we topped with Dubliner cheese and caramelized onions and mushrooms. Served alongside a simple spinach salad of carrots, cheese, pistachios, and raisins, it’s a meal that we will definitely be repeating in the future.
- 4 white mushrooms
- 1/2 sweet yellow onion
- 1 lb of ground turkey
- 3 Tbsp of cold cooked rice
- 2 generous Tbsp of grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 Tbsp of French onion sour cream
- 1/2 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 minced green onion
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
- 1 scant tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Thinly slice mushrooms and onion. Cook in a skillet over medium low heat until browned and caramelized. Keep warm.
Meanwhile, combine all remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Form into four patties. Cook in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat until well done (juice should run clear). Serve burgers on flatbread or hamburger buns. Top with sliced cheese, mushroom and onion. Enjoy!
