Tomato-Basil Turkey Burgers Recipe

Tomato-Basil Turkey Burgers Recipe

Make these tasty burgers with regular, not lean, ground turkey so they’re extra-moist and juicy. They can also be cooked under the broiler. —Jamie Miller, Maple Grove, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 1 package (6-1/2 ounces) sun-dried tomato and basil cheese spread, divided
  • 1-1/4 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, quartered
  • 4 ciabatta rolls, split

Directions

  • 1. Cut onion into three 1/2-in. slices; chop remaining onion and place in a large bowl. Stir in 1/3 cup cheese spread. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into four patties.
  • 2. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil. Using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill burgers, onion slices and red pepper, covered, over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear. Chop grilled onion and red pepper.
  • 3. Spread rolls with remaining cheese spread; top each with a burger and grilled vegetables. Replace tops. Yield: 4 servings.
