Summer means grilled burgers right? Well not all the time, here’s a little ground turkey recipe I cooked up for the weekend, the Cajun Turkey Burgers. I’m not a beef eater so I have to get creative when it comes to burgers. I normally eat just a normal turkey burger but I wanted something different. Note, that I didn’t use most of the ingredients because peppers and hot sauce just aren’t my thing.
Juicy Cajun Turkey BurgersPrint Recipe
- 2 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions
- 3 tablespoons celery, coarsely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup roasted red peppers, Delallo®
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning, McCormick®
- 1 1⁄4 pounds ground turkey
- 3 tablespoons plus 1⁄4 cup tartar sauce, Hellmann’s®
- 1⁄4 cup plain bread crumbs, Progresso®
- 1 large egg, beaten
- Kosher salt and ground black pepper
- Hot sauce, Tabasco sauce® (optional)
- 1 roma tomato, diced
- 1 teaspoon garlic blend, Gourmet Garden®
- 8 hamburger buns, toasted
- Leaf lettuce
1. Combine the scallions, celery, red peppers, parsley, and Cajun seasoning in a food processor. Cover and process until smooth. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add turkey, 3 tablespoons of tartar sauce, bread crumbs, and egg and mix well. Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce (optional). Shape turkey mixture into four 4-inch patties.
2. Next, Preheat the broiler. Then, prepare a foil-lined baking sheet or broiler pan and place the patties on it. Broil 6 to 8 inches from the heat for 5 to 7 minutes on each side and internal temperature reaches 165°F.
3. Stir together remaining 1⁄4 cup tartar sauce, diced tomato, and garlic in a small bowl. Serve patties on toasted burger buns with tartar sauce mixture, lettuce, and red onion.
