Nothing feels good as biting into a tasty and juicy burger in my opinion. Since I am not a big fan of fast food I like to make my own burgers at home as the flavor is more intense and I can control the fat content. I got inspiration for this turkey burger with cilantro mayo from Chef Emeril and added my own twist to the recipe.
When I made this burgers for my boyfriend the other day, he was asking for more.This recipe is very easy to make and is perfect for a Friday evening after work while watching a ball game.
1 lb ground turkey
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 small onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
1 tablespoon ketchup
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
lettuce, tomatoes and thinly sliced red onions.
for cilantro mayo:
3/4 cup low fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup fresh cilantro finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 garlic clove minced
- Put all the cilantro mayo ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth and chill in the refrigerator.
- In a large bowl mix all the first 11 ingredients and form into patties.Make sure not to over mix the mixture as this results in tough burgers.
- Cook Patties in a skillet over medium heat turning once, do not press down the patties as this will squeeze out juices.
- Serve burgers on buns with the cilantro mayo, lettuce, thinly sliced red onions and tomato. Add avocado if you like.
