It’s summer time and if you’re lucky enough to have a BBQ you have probably been grilling up a storm. Give these delicious turkey burgers a try for a super flavourful and unique alternative to the store-bought kind. With only 6 ingredients they come together quickly on busy nights.
Note, if you don’t have a grill (like me) these can just as easily be pan-fried or baked!
Makes 4 burgers
Ingredients for burgers:
1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
2 tsp paprika
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
1 1/3lb lean ground turkey
4 whole grain hamburger buns (or try it the burgers on top of your favourite whole grain, like quinoa or whole grain rice
Red onion, sliced
Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined.
Shape into four ¾” thick patties.
Cook the burgers on the grill for 6-7 minutes turning once, or in a pan on medium high heat for about 4 minutes per side. Make sure burgers are fully cooked through (the inside of the burgers should reach a temperature of 165 F).
Place on a bun or on top of your whole grain of choice and top with spinach leaves and sliced red onion.
