Memorial Weekend BBQ Idea
Absolute Events, LLC wanted to leave you with a healthy but fun Holiday Weekend BBQ idea.
The Turkey Burger is a healthy alternative to the age old beef burger. The extra lean turkey meat is more of a backup singer to the real star, with fresh vegetables and seasonings. This moist, tender meat is a bit more expensive than beef but well worth the few extra dollars.
For those who go bun-less, buy extra iceberg lettuce (chill in fridge) and wrap it up.
1lb of Ground Turkey (extra lean “Jenny-o” recommended)
1/2 cup of Feta cheese
Optional: 10-12 Saltine Crackers (any type of cracker will work I find saltines to work the best)
1/4 cup of Chopped Onion
1/2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
Garlic Salt (to taste)
Red Pepper Flakes (for that little extra kick)
Spinach leaves (pictured above)
Brown the chopped onion and minced garlic.
In a separate bowl, mix together the ground turkey, egg, feta cheese, and seasonings.
Crumble the saltine crackers into the mixture (optional). When onion and garlic have browned, add them to the mixture.
Using your hands, mix together all of the ingredients until the mixture is solid enough for you to form 4 burger patties.
Placing the meat in the fridge and letting it stand for a few hours will let all the flavors infuse throughout the meat.
Warm up that BBQ or Heat large skillet and Cook until one side has browned then flip over.
Cook time will vary, depending on thickness of burgers. Before finished, cut thru the center of one burger and make sure color is consistent (not pink). Remove from heat, place on toasted buns or wrap in lettuce and add toppings.
