Are you hungry? If not you’re about to be. My lady crush Bree from the D.C. wedding blog, Capitol Romance was kind enough to share her secret recipe for her awesome turkey burgers. Thanks Bree for the post and making me buy a ticket to fly back to D.C. for dinner so you can make me these tonight!
I love taking recipes I find online and just sort of “winging” them or playing around with the recipe based on what I might have in my kitchen, or what might be easier (aka, I mostly always use spices from a jar, even if the recipe calls for fresh ones. sorry, I am a lazy chef). So when I tried my hand at turkey burgers a while back, I did my usual Google search, found one that seemed easy enough, and have messed with it to come up with my own, personalized, recipe of a turkey burger, which I have dubbed, “Bree’s Bangorang Burgers” (Copyright, TM, and everything else on that name!)
Oh! I also apologize at my not-all-that-specific ingredient measurements. I suck at doing exact measurements and more or less just add things to taste/how I feel that day!
Bree’s Bangorang Burgers
- 1.25-1.75 pounds of Turkey Thigh Meat (you can use breast, but they tend to yield much more dry burgers)
- 1 large dollop of Light Sour Cream
- 1/3 cup Oats
- Panko Bread Crumbs (or any kind of bread crumbs really)
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Minced onion
- Minced garlic
- Spices: salt, bay leaves & marjoram
- A hard, sharp cheese for the top (if you like cheese on your burgers)
Turn oven to 375 degrees.
Fashion into patties and place on greased foil in a 9×13 baking pan. I usually make 6 total burgers, no matter how much meat I buy. Bake for 25-35 minutes (depending on thickness and your taste in meat cooking).
Cut the sharp cheese (I like Cabot or Perrano) and place on the burgers for the last 10 minutes of cooking.
Serve with veggies & starch ~ and ENJOY. (Side note: I never eat my turkey burger on a bun, but you definitely could!)
Thanks Bree- you big ole weirdo who doesn’t like her burger on a bun!
