juicy turkey burger with garlic, mint, and rosemary



Yes, I just said JUICY turkey burgers! These burgers came out loaded with the flavors of garlic, mint, rosemary, and parsley with a secret ingredient that insured you'd be biting into a juicy, dribble down your chin, burger. Olive oil made all the difference, in this wonderful recipe slightly adapted from Kalyn's Kitchen.
Her recipe included some spices I didn't have, like coriander and sweet paprika, so I minced up some rosemary along with the parsley and mint. While those spices are on my grocery list for the next shopping, this adaptation was fabulous. I was also able to make two fat, large burgers, along with a dozen "turkey meatballs" to simmer in broth for brown bagging lunches.
So do check out her recipe, which includes a yogurt sauce for dipping.
To make:
1 pound ground turkey
2 fat cloves of garlic, minced
3 T. minced parsley
2 T. minced fresh mint
2 T. minced rosemary ( or you can use fresh dill if you prefer)
1 1/2 t. ground cumin
3 T. olive oil
1 1/2 t. salt
freshly ground pepper
Mix ingredients together well. Form into 4 patties, or make two burgers and a dozen medium-sized turkey meatballs. Cook in a skillet with olive oil over medium heat until cooked through.
I served the burgers on sandwich flats with heirloom tomatoes.
Enjoy!

It was a revelation, GarlicB! Too often the burgers stay juicy for about one minute, then dry out rapidly. Not anymore, I'm happy to say!
