I make my own, using:
Lean ground turkey
Freshly & finely chopped onions
Stubbs Bar-B-Q Spice Rub
Freshly frozen thyme, marjoram, basil, oregano
Put in a ziploc freezer bag and let sit 24 hours in the fridge.
Grill them on a panini press.
They are moist and just delicious.
I have had some Turkey meat meatloaf and have to say it was really good.
These can really be a challenge, you want them cooked through, but still juicy. I find the best way is to make my own, and do it up almost like a meatloaf. Add chopped onion or green pepper, some mushrooms also help give moisture. Add salt, pepper, Worcestershire, the finely diced vegatables, and even sometimes an egg and some breadcrumbs.
I ve grilled them, but a skillet works better.
They aren t as good as a real beef burger, but they are healthier!
I’ve had some good ones. First off don’t look at it as a hamburger substitute, it’s another meal option all together, so set you expectation. I buy the chopped turkey meat and make my own burgers. I normally leave them rather plain for the kids but I add a dash of hot sauce, a little BBQ sauce, whatever I feel like at the time. Also the cooking time is different, much quicker the beef so you have to get it off the grill quick before it dries out. I never cared for the premade, only the chopped, or the store made, which is the chopped preformed. Play around a little, some bacon and BBQ sauce dresses them up nicely.
No…No…No…just never did it for me.Oh I know the supposed health benefits etc., but taste is a turn off…ditto veggie burgers!
Has anyboey ever had a good one? The only experience I have had is a very over spiced piece of dry meat. Refuse to try another.
