Turkey burgers are often in our rotation of repeated dinners. They are really flavorful without adding the heaviness of a beef burger (sorry, beef).
I made this variation that adds the punch of pesto and the richness of Parmesan. A perfect way to beat dinner repetition boredom.
Parmesan, Pesto Turkey Burgers
1 lb ground turkey (I used 93% lean--go leaner if you like)
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used a mix of panko & Italian breadcrumbs)
2 tsp (or more) jarred pesto
salt & pepper
Mix all these ingredients with your hands and form 4 patties. Get a large skillet hot and add some non-stick spray. Cook the burgers on one side until brown (about 5 minutes), then flip over and cook an additional 3-5 minutes.
Note: The t-burgers (I'm trying a new abbrev, here) will try to stick to the pan. Just add more non-stick spray as you flip them. No biggie.
I served our turkey burgers on thin bread with spinach and a side of veggie hash with quinoa.
