Gourmet Turkey Burgers

Where do I start?? Again, I will use the excuse of days too short! But seriously, they are too short!

The season has started at the West Dennis Yacht Club, and my weekends have been busy. I am also coaching Julie soccer team, two nights a week at least, and game on weekend. And Dylan and Emilie also have games on weekend that I like to watch!!! So very little time to update my blog!

And as if this was not enough... I am now making desserts for a popular local restaurant... Wicked!

Emilie and Bob  have pretty much taken the kitchen over, and tonight I had one of the best burger ever! A turkey burger, Bob Style!

Gourmet Turkey Burger

Makes 10 burgers

3 lb ground turkey

1 red pepper
3 small stalks of celery
1 small vidalia onion
4 sprigs fresh oregano
3 sprigs fresh parsley
2 Tbsp chopped chives
6 or 7 garlic cloves

1/2 cup whole wheat Panko breadcrumb
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Chili powder

Portobello mushrooms
Swiss cheese, sliced

Place the vegetables, herbs and garlic in a food processor and pulse until chopped fine but not pureed.
Mix in a large bowl with the ground turkey. Add the Panko, the Dijon, the olive oil and salt and pepper. Mix well.
Refrigerate for at least one hour.

Remove from the fridge and make the patties. Sprinkle the top of the patties with chili powder.

Heat the grill high. Clean the mushrooms.
When hot, place the patties and the mushrooms on the grill, and sear the meat 3 minutes on each side. Reduce the heat to low and cook for another 5 minutes on each side. Meanwhile, remove the grilled mushrooms and slice. Set aside. When patties have been turned over, place a slice of Swiss cheese on top, and a couple of pieces of mushroom,

Serve hot on a bun, or on its own with a salad.
