Terrific Turkey Burgers
By Gus Croteau
YIELD: 4 patties
Here is another light meal for you to try. I like these because I can prepare 4~6 burgers and freeze them for my lunches during the week.
0.5 kg (500g/18oz) of Lean Ground Turkey
1/4 cup chopped onions
2 garlic cloves or 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1/4 cup of water
1 teaspoon of ginger root or powdered ginger
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 cup of rolled oats (not instant)
2 tablespoons of low sodium Kikkoman Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed orange juice
Salt & pepper to taste
Light whole wheat burger buns (I like the PC Burger First Multi Grain Buns)
Combine all ingredients in a large glass bowl and mix thoroughly by hand. Prepare 4~6 burger patties on wax or parchment paper. Put 1 table spoon of EVOO in your nonstick pan and place pan over medium high heat.
Once the pan comes to temperature place 2~3 patties in the pan and cover for 4 minutes. After 4 minutes, remove the cover from the pan and flip your patties over and cook for another 3 minutes uncovered. Repeat these same steps for the remainder of your patties.
Top your burger with a little mustard, onions, tomato and spinach leaves or choice favourite toppings.
